The Sewing Machine Master List at Sew, Mama, Sew!


sewing machine

It seems that lately I’ve been getting a lot of questions about how to pick out a sewing machine. I usually pass along this really helpful post on how to choose a sewing machine by Erin at A Dress A Day because honestly, she says it better than I could.

But now I have a wonderful resource to couple with Erin’s sage advice: The Sewing Machine Master List from Sew, Mama, Sew!

The lovely people over at Sew, Mama, Sew! asked their readers to answer a number of questions about sewing machines and post them to their own blogs. they then compiled the links to all of those posts. The result is a neatly organized list of tons of interviews with real people about their experiences with their own machines. So useful!

If you’re thinking about a new machine or may be in the future, bookmark this amazing list.

Oh, and if you have other useful resources for choosing a machine (or even just getting started in the world of sewing), I’d love to hear about them.
