Which Sewing Machine?

I'm after some advice on Sewing machines. I'm looking to spend under £300. but need a machine that is good and solid, will handle a range of thicknesses of fabrics, fully adjustable stitch width and length, a few decorative stitches, one step button hole, drop feed. and very reliable.

I would love to know which machines you use and how you rate them.
And if you can recommend a good machine.

Come on folks I need some help here.


  1. Visiting from the hop. I'm a new follower.

    Got to the linky too late, but if you aren't following yet, I'd love to have you!

    Sorry, can't give any advice on sewing machines...although Brother seems to be a good brand (not sure if you get that one over there).

  2. Hi, this is a toughie as everyone will have their own opinions. I've had a Singer for years and it has been totally reliable, they seem to have some good models at the moment. You may be pushed to find a machine that handles a range of thicknesses (all depends how think you mean I guess) for your budget. For a quick round up try 'Sew' magazine they tend to feature a selection of different machines each month. Good luck

  3. Thanks Caroline I'll try that!

  4. Mines a brother Innov Is 350SE i got it from here it was cheaper when I bought it But I love it it has three types of letter embroidery on it too. There are lots of others on here tooo good luck x

  5. I think I'm going to look at a Janome. There are a couple of models that I'm considering. I think I'd like to stick with a mechanical model. I'm old fashioned at heart and don't need loads of fancy stuff.

    I did look at a Bernina as I used to use them when I was teaching Food and textiles. they were solid and reliable. Can't get what I want in my price range!


I'd love to hear your views, so come and share.
