Why Is A Used Sewing Machine Better Than A New Inexpensive Machine ?
If you are looking for a sewing machine that will last you a lifetime, you do not want to start by looking at those cheap machines in your local department store. In fact, unless you have $1000 and up to spend on the highest quality sewing machines, you dont even want to be looking at anything new. Otherwise, you are much better off buying an excellent quality used machine. When on the hunt for a good machine, there are a few basic guidelines to keep in mind. First off, the older it is, odds are the better it is (up to a certain point). I still have my Grandmother’s Featherweight Singer and know I can still count on it to produce a perfect straightstitch. I learned to sew on a treadle sewing machine (which I still own) before Mum let me use an electric one.
