So, let’s point out some viral fundamentals to be considered when you searching the best one for you!

Things You Must Know When Buying A Sewing Machine:

You have to keep in mind some important factors before buying a sewing machine. For instance:


Singer, Brother, Janome, Kenmore, White, Viking, Juki, Pfaff, Bernina and Babylock etc are renowned brands of sewing machine. You should inspect where the machine is made and how it is constructed. Many brands are using plastic instead of metal which made the machine brittle. Select your machine according to your budget and your purpose.


You can consider a sewing machine with a car. All cars do the same thing but all cars are not same. Likewise, all the sewing machine has a basic principle but all are not same. Depending upon your work and need, select the machine which has the necessary feature for your project. Some have the option for stitching stretch, some have buttonhole, some have special quilting feature. You know your operation; just don’t get stuck in more machines.

Buy that one which has the feature you want. If it is possible, take one of your friends who have an idea about them. Don’t be baffled when the sales people will try to impress you with the shiny look of the machine.

Sewing ability

It’s the most important and significant requirement for the machine. Make sure it has a good capability of sewing all kinds of fabric like stain, cotton, wool (lightweight and heavy weight), denim, cotton jersey, polyester, silk, cotton duck, silk chiffon etc. Also check if it can sew multiple layer of fabric or not!


Check the sound of the machine. If you are experienced, you can detect any defect of the machine by its sound. Make sure all the parts are properly greased.

Price range

The truth is, a good, accurate sewing machine is not so cheap. Think about your car again. You cannot afford the expensive one but you also don’t want a scrap. So, cut your coat according to your cloth. Combine your desire and budget, make the best choice.

Customer Care Service

Make sure that, the brand is providing a handsome time of warranty and 24/7 customer service. Don’t buy any product which doesn’t allow you a good starting guarantee and any customer care service. Clarify the availability of real-live assistance when you call, how quickly they will response to your problem etc. It’s your consumer right.

I have a suggestion for you regarding the customer service. Buy your machine from the market situated in your locality. It will be a nice to support the community as well as you will get instant support when required. The problems about the big store are, you will not find anyone to call or seek help when you are in trouble. Again the local sewing shop can make a quick drop when you need accessories.

Try to buy the machine that suits with your style. You will be comfortable in your sewing project!
