Buying your first sewing machine can seem like a daunting task.
How to choose a sewing machine when you know nothing about them? Today's article will help you choose the right sewing machine. After reading, you will know what types of sewing machines there are and how to choose the machine that best suits your needs. Now let's consider the types and functions of sewing machines.
Household sewing machine
This is a household sewing machine that you can use every day. With most of these types of machines, you can sew, alter, and even rework the fabric. You can make buttonholes, sew satin and create decorative stitch designs.
Heavy Duty Sewing Machines (Discounted)
Standard sewing machines are capable of sewing thick fabrics, heavy duty sewing machines are designed to handle much thicker fabrics than regular sewing machines, and they work well on thin fabrics as well.
They have a more powerful motor and other features that make the process of sewing fabrics like denim, leather, shirts and more easier and much easier. These sewing machines are usually not as fancy as your everyday sewing machine in terms of features, but they allow you to sew different thicknesses of fabric.
If you plan to sew mostly thick fabrics, consider a heavy-duty sewing machine.
Embroidery machines are computerized machines designed primarily for embroidering digital designs on fabrics. You can monogram or embroider anything, including t-shirts, hats, towels, and more.
If you like the idea of embroidery in addition to sewing, there are also combination sewing and embroidery machines.
A serger (also called an overlock sewing machine) sews a seam, finishes the edge of the fabric, and trims the excess fabric in one operation. This results in a professional finish to your project and gets the job done faster than a regular sewing machine.
Sergers typically do not sew buttons, topstitching, and furthermore, are not intended to replace your everyday sewing machine. If you look at the seams on your shirts and other clothing, chances are a serger made them!
Types of sewing machines according to their performance
There are three different types of sewing machines:
- Manual (not computerized)
Hand sewing machines
Hand sewing machines have absolutely no circuitry and are operated by turning the hand wheel or pumping the foot.
Although manual sewing machines (discounted) are not popular with new users, they are useful when electricity is not available.
Mechanical sewing machines
Mechanical or electric sewing machines have minimal circuitry with a motor in the body that moves the needle up and down through the fabric. The foot pedal drives the motor and the harder the foot controller is pressed, the faster the machine sews.
Many electric machines have a small selection of stitches and limited functions and are therefore very easy for beginners to operate.
Computerized sewing machines
Computerized sewing machines have an LCD screen and are the most sophisticated sewing machines. As such, they offer more stitches and features. The default stitch length and width are programmed and troubleshooting is much easier as the machine notifies us of an error.
Most often, manual sewing machines can be purchased at a lower price, while computerized sewing machines have a higher price tag.
Choosing a sewing machine brand
Depending on your budget and preferences, certain brands of sewing machines will appeal to you more. I mainly use Singer and Brother sewing machines because they offer the most value at an affordable price.
Tip: Whichever machine you choose, always use a good quality thread to avoid problems with fraying and stitch quality.
Now, you already know how to choose a sewing machine and what to consider when buying. I hope you can find a sewing machine that fits your needs!
