I Haven’t been machine sewing for over a year or two and desperately want to start again. I want to purchase a computerized sewing machine with reasonable amount of stitches and functions but I’m solely interested in apparel construction and maybe a few small home decor projects. I would like to spend somewhere between $150-$200, the less the better, but this is where I get lost… I want the best machine for that amount yet it seems I’d be mostly paying for a lot of extra features that are geared toward quilting.
This Brother seems to be the most popular buy in all my internet searches. I really appreciate the fact that it comes with a hard case but just wonder if I couldn’t find something similar for less without the quilting options or even something at a comparable price with more useful apparel features.
Does anyone have any advice or insight into some options ,in that price range, that are more specific to apparel construction with less if any focus on quilting features??
Or even if your advise is to just get best machine and disregard the wasted quilting accessories, I could just use some insight.
