    I've bought a Singer Machine in 2006 and its the best! The Usha I bought around the same time always has problems.

    Re: which sewing machine to purchase?

    hi friend,
    i want to suggest the machine i had usha janome only. but the main thing is have to maintain it regularly atleast once in a month like putting oil, wipes all the sides even inside of the machine. and have to lookafter the needle it is sharp or not, in that way have to keep clean and if many pblms occured we can service at the right time. so buying the machine is not a great thing have to maintain it in goodway then only we can purchase the machine. its my suggestion dont take it as a seroius matter. because all machines are good maintenance is the good one to keep the machine in good condition. so buy any machine, that is not a great thing i think!! and it depends upon the demands of urs like the design settings and computerised also is there, so go to many shops and take a short notes on that and compare the prizes and the facilites of the machines, then u can decide. well friend! i think i had given u a long post and let me know what machine will u buy!!

    Ladies, for a beginner, do you recommend those old meritt models or i can get a hang of singer fashion maker? I dont want to exchange/buy machines often, so thinking if i invest in singer fashion maker directly, will it help me or will I get confused?
    TIA

    Hai,

    Last month i was confused, which type of machine is useful. But I saw many suggestions in this site. If we are doing commercial, the industrial type is good choice i.e. old type machine like singer or usha whatever maybe. Otherwise home purpose, i.e. machine is using occasionaly we may buy electronic machine. But last week i brought industrial type sinder merritt with motor.

    with love
    yasskamal:thumbsup

    Re: sewing machine in USA

    Hello Haasini,

    I would suggest going for either Brother LS2125 or Brother CS6000i. LS2125 is a beginner machine which costs around 70-75$. Cs6000i is a computerized embroidery machine which costs around 160$. I am using both of them and find them really good.
    Let me know if you need more information.
