Sewing Machines - why oh why? Pt2

Yes, the stupid machine has decided to not work for me, yet only the other day it worked fine, when I made the gorgeous Buttercup Bag. This is not a new thing.

I know it is laughing at me, as it knows I want a new machine!!!


So please please tell me your makes and models and cost and what you think of them, as I've had enough and I want a new machine (not that I have any ready cash for this at present!

Thank you everyone for your help!

A very frustrated Claire.

And I just ordered Weekend Sewing! And have a quilt to sew for a baby!!! Urgh! V V Annoyed.

Hi Claire,
I'm waiting on Weekend Sewing too. My last machine was a Janome, I think it was a 525s, cost about £200 and was very good. My latest is a Bernina 230 which has some more handy features - one step buttonhole, needle up\needle down, ability to alter the needle position and to sew at half speed, it can sew on buttons and has a memory bank and LCD screen. I've found those things quite handy. That was £695 though.

I have a Toyota RS2000 Series less than £200 - used by students in the local schools here (Somerset). Does everything except going out to buy its material! Oh and it has a self-threading needle!

I am going to save up and spend c£700-1000, and just get something that is fantastic, probably a Bernina, as most people seem to rave about them. My birthday isn't till Nov, so no cash to help me along until then! Still someting to aim for : )
