Best Entry Level Sewing Machines

Thank you so much for sharing!

Hello Everyone!  Well, this video answers 1 of my most frequently asked questions… What type of sewing machine should I buy?  Most people are just getting started and overwhelmed by what do look for. This list features sewing machines that are under $200. That is the price point most people are interested in.  Hopefully this helps to narrow the list and gives you some machines to compare!

Features to look for Apparel Sewing
zig zag stitch
smaller free arm
variety of feet

Features to look for in Quilting
ability to free motion (feed dogs drop)
larger throat space
extension table

Features for Craft sewing
Similar to Apparel
Ability to sew heavy duty fabrics

Good things to look for…
Extras like needles, feet, bobbins
metal parts and sturdy construction

These are some of the best entry level sewing machines to consider, look at reviews and warranty info – especially if purchasing online ;).
