Sewing machine sticker shock - Page 2

post #21 of 25

I have this one and I *love* it.  http://www.kenmore.com/shc/s/p_10154_12604_02019233000P?vName=Home&cName=Sewing+Machines&sName=Electric+Sewing+Machines&prdNo=3&blockNo=3&blockType=L3  It is reliable and has done a great job from satin to knits to jeans.  I have a much more expensive Babylock that I got for embroidery, but find myself going back to this one for my everyday sewing.

Another vote for vintage machine. I found a Rocketeer in a table for $100 in the local paper. I'd been watching for one for several weeks. A lady was selling it- it had been her mom's and was well taken care of. Just needed a cleaning. One day I would like to get a new cord on it since the plug it has isn't polarized and kind of bent. It's an awesome machine- I've done some very basic quilting, sewing of clothes and diapers, blankets, etc. I love it!

You got lots of replies and I haven't read them all... Check on ebay fo reburbished ones or even at a sewing machine repair shop around your town.

I get all my machines from ebay. I have gotten a couple great deals, machines that cost over $5000 for less than 2
