Whether you plan to sew your own clothes, embroider gifts or just do some mending and hemming, a sewing machine can be a great investment.
To choose the best sewing machine for you, start by considering what you plan to sew. If you mainly plan to sew home decor or clothing, an electric or computerized sewing machine is a good choice. If you expect to do a lot of elaborate embroidery, you may do best with a dedicated embroidery machine, which usually comes with a package of designs. If you plan to create fancy stitching only on occasion, the best choice is a "crossover" computerized sewing machine with a collection of decorative stitches. Sergers are excellent for sewing knit fabrics. For quick repairs, you can use a mini sewing machine.
Another factor to consider is your level of experience. Sergers are speedy and work very well on knit fabrics, but they require more skill to be used successfully. If you're starting at a beginning or intermediate level, you'll probably do better with an electric or computerized sewing machine.
