Sewing is a craft that can be relaxing or stressful. It is relaxing when you know what you are doing, and very stressful when you are trying to figure out what to do next or what went wrong. Having instructions in front of you only helps when you know what you are looking for. But, having the right sewing machine in front of you, makes all the difference in the world. The Singer Sewing Company has dedicated themselves to make sewing machines that are a easy to use and top of the line in durability and function.
Creating something by hand is a very rewarding experience and can be achieved by any one, regardless of their age and gender. The Singer 1409 Promise is a great basic beginner machine for those who are just starting out and want to learn how to sew by doing simple projects first. The machine comes with 6 basic stitches, 2 decorative stitches and a buttonhole stitch. The internet has made it possible to learn how to sew without getting too frustrated early on. You can simply upload a video on any topic that you are looking to understand in greater detail. One of the most common frustrations for beginning sewers is thread tension. As with any basic sewing machine, the type of thread that you can use may be limited to a select few. Some threads may simply be too thick for basic machines and may get jammed in the machine more often, even after adjusting the tension.
For intermediate sewers who want a machine with more options, then the Singer 7258 Stylist, which has won a Consumer's Digest Award two times, is the machine you want. Especially, when you are past being familiar with the basics and have decided on the type of projects that you like to do. This machine will make those projects look more polished and professional, but without the tedious work of doing the basics each time. This machine has automatic buttonhole stitches, automatic needle threader, push button stitch selection, and you can sew through 6 to 8 layers of fabric at a time.
Singer even has sergers and embroidery machines for those advanced sewers who know what they are doing and want to go about it in a smarter way. The Singer Sewing Company is always looking to keep creative juices flowing, they have a vast array of machines in a price range for every budget.
