Last week a dear friend of mine asked me if I’d ever done a post about beginner sewing machines. And to be honest, I haven’t because I don’t know a lot about them! I was brought up on Elna machines, and I love them and have a lot of brand loyalty, so I honestly haven’t really explored other options.
I learnt to sew on my moms first sewing machine – it was an Elna Lotus, and she gave it to me when I was 11. And though I’ve moved on to a more modern machine now, it’s still my favourite machine of all time. It only had a straight stitch and a zig zag and that’s it. But it was sturdy as anything, and always performed well. Funnily enough whenever i get it serviced the serviceman starts trying to haggle with me to buy it. hehe yeah, not gonna happen!
Anyway, since I really don’t know a lot about beginner machines – I thought I might leave this as an open post of sorts. If you have a beginner sewing machine you’d like to recommend to other beginners, would you mind leaving a comment about it? I’ll do my best to then update this post with your recommendations.
Thanks so much! I really appreciate the help friends!
