Which brand of sewing machine & overlocker do you recommend?

    Sewing machines are kind of like mobile phones. There are all sorts of bells and whistles available but most of the time you don't use them and sometimes you can't even figure out how. Don't waste money on bells and whistles if you won't use them. There are a lot of good brands - Pfaff, Husqvarna Viking, Janome, Brother. Stay away from the new Singers, although the old ones (30 years or older) are still excellent workhorse machines. Look for a good, sturdy machine. Where you buy the product is almost as important as what you buy.  The right store should be able to give free lessons, service your machine and answer any questions you might have - we provide all of these services!  You are not going to get this kind of support from a discount / department store.
