Tips for Buying & Using Your First Sewing Machine | Apartment Therapy
My first sewing machine was actually my mum’s old one. It was a pretty tough machine - it was run over by a car by my dad (they had a tense relationship - haha! no, actually my mum left it behind the car to have it put in the boot, didn’t tell Dad and he reversed over it!) But it blew up in the best fashion, with smoke and everything. It was terrifying and sad. It wasn’t the best machine but it was mine and I loved it! When I went to get a new one, I wasn’t sure of what to look for. The assistant was really helpful - I’m glad I went to a proper store. The machine is a great one, a very basic model with the directions on how to thread it right on the machine. If you’re looking to get into sewing, try this article, and follow the links to some great sewing sites.
