    Sewing / Tailoring / Stitching : Choosing a sewing machine

    Dear Friends,

    I am planning to buy a sewing machine. I am a beginner for stitching and this is going to be my first machine. I have selected Usha Janome Allure machine which costs around 7000 INR.
    I have read some reviews of this machine over the internet but I believe that my IL friends will help me a lot knowing about this machine.
    Anybody having this machine? Is this good for purchase? any disadv in this machine?

    Thanks for your comments in advance.

    re: Sewing / Tailoring / Stitching :portable sewing machine

    hi madhuri,
    the stapler kind that you referred to cannot be used. it is better you buy a usha portable. or you may find many varieties in US itself, if you have restrictions on the wt of your luggage!
