New Machine for a Birthday Present

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

 

I'm new to the forum and hope some of you craft wizards out there can help a husband who hasn't a clue!

 

My lovely wife has birthday coming up so I'd like to buy her a new sewing machine that is capable of working with 16-20oz Selvage denim that I would call a heavy weight fabric. Not knowing how to purchase sewing machines I thought I'd best get advice from those in the know.

 

Thanks in advance for any help 

 

Marco

Hi Marco, it looks as if your wife could do with a semi industrial machine. You could contact a machine shop and ask their advice as I have no idea which machine to recommend as I only sew fairly lightweight fabrics. Good luck with finding one, you have a lucky wife with a new machine.

I only use a normal sewing machine too.  A walking foot is a good tool to buy for any sewing machine as it has teeth on the top to help thick or slippy fabrics to pass under the foot easily :)
