Hi Burdastylers, I want to buy a new sewing machine and since there are so many machines available and I don’t know where to start, I’d love to hear your recommendations! My current sewing machine is Elna lotus 1000, which is a very basic machine (the most complicated thing it is supposed to do is sew a 4 step buttonhole, but that feature doesn’t work anymore). So I’m looking for a machine with more than just the basic features but not something super fancy, because of the price…
I’m considering buying a sewing machine online because the difference in the price between a machine here in Israel and the same one on Amazon for example can be more than 200 dollars! I don’t know if it’s a good idea although it’s cheaper, because if there’s a problem with the machine I won’t be able to just take it to the store where I bought it. My budget is around 400 dollars, so if I buy my machine online I’ll be able to chose a more expensive machine. Have you ever bought a sewing machine online? If you did, please tell me about it.
