|And best of all- it’s Kitty-approved!|
People often ask me what kind of sewing machine I use. I guess they figure that because i make my living sewing, that I would have a state-of-the-art, fancy-dancy sewing machine.
Well here’s the deal…it’s an unusual day that I don’t use my sewing machine, and I have very little need for fancy stitching or other bells and whistles.
And just between you and me, I’m kinda hard on a machine. I don’t clean it as often as I should, and I certainly don’t oil it as recommended. You might say that any sewing machine of mine better be able to ‘take a licking and keeps on ticking’. I LOVE my machine because despite all this, it hasn’t given me a moment’s problem in the 7 years I’ve been abusing…I mean using it. 🙂
My weapon of choice is a Necchi, and I think it cost in the neighborhood of $250 when my folks got it for me as a gift. (I must confess that at the time, I had never heard of Necchi Sewing Machines.)
It’s not fancy, but ALL the moving parts are metal, not plastic like a lot of more expensive brands. And the salesman said that you could sewing through leather with it, and I actually have, with no problem! And get this- it comes with a 25 YEAR WARRANTY, which I’m told is one of the longest warranties of machines on the market today.
So…. if you’re in the market for a machine- check out Necchi. I highly recommend it!
And in the meantime, how’s about telling us what kind of sewing machine you’re currently using, and what you might you like or dislike about it? I would especially come in handy for us.
