Choose Your Machine Type

How do I know which sewing machine is right for me?

Here are a few simple tips that will help you choose the best machine for your needs and budget. Follow these steps and choosing a machine is a piece of C.A.K.E!

Researching the machine: 

  • Consider what kind of sewing you will be doing. Are you going to do garment sewing? Will you want to do embroidery? How about quilting? Will you be working with heavy fabrics or mostly just medium weight? How frequently will you be using the machine? Do you want a machine that does it all or do you prefer to have specialty machines to handle various tasks so you can keep working while a machine completes a process such as embroidery for you? Consider apples to apples when it comes to working with a local dealer. How many free lessons will you get and how long are they. Does your dealer offer in-house service and repairs? The price might not vary much within a particular market but what is your dealer including with the machine?
  • Ask fellow sewers about their experiences with a particular brand, most people will share what they think happily.
  • Know your budget and stick to it. It's easy to get excited about all the latest technology and great things that modern machines can do, but you won't be truly happy if you over-spend. Know what various brands and types of machines cost. If you want to buy a dealer quality combination sewing and embroidery machine expect to pay more than you would at big box stores. There is a big difference in price between brands based on the quality of the product and where it is made, and by whom.
  • Experience the machine for yourself. Always try before you buy. Visit your local dealer with swatches of the kinds of fabric that you actually want to sew and test drive different models. This will allow you to make an informed choice. Want to buy online? Here's another way that being part of a group or guild really pays off. Talk to fellow members and ask them if they would let you stitch a bit on their machine next time the group gets together. At Designer Sewing Center, we proudly offer our Juki machines for sale online but we still hope that you will take the time to test the machine out locally before you buy.
