Sewing machine ?

I'm looking into getting my first sewing machine.... mostly for hemming pants and maybe making some baby items. I have no idea what to look for in a sewing machine. I don't want to spend too much. Any thoughts?

  • since its your first and your only planning on doing small progects i would look for anything that says beginner machine or simple to use. you don't want it to be a pain in the a$$ to get it set up just to hem a pair of pants

  • Often there is a basic Singer available at Costco. Also, you can check out Sears - they usually have basic machines.
