How to chose your new sewing machine or overlocker.

Well, it’s quite simple really and not necessary for you to troll through the different machines adding to your confusion, but by all means do that if you want to.

Just to give you an idea of prices and features. It might be useful for you to look at our “Manufacturer History” page for a bit of background info.

1, Make a list.

At the top of that list put your budget.

2, list all the things that you want to do with the machine (not what features you want).

3, list the features that you can’t do without. i.e. needle threader.

Then you can come into the shop armed with this information and we can work with you to find the most suitable machine for you.

Remember, it’s a tool that you are buying so you need to get the most efficient one for what you are going to use it for. It’s also something that you are going to keep for many years so think of it as an investment.
