    Basic sewing machine for beginner 6th Oct 19 at 10:34 PM
    I posted in another part of the forum but now have found the correct place to put this thread.

    I make little figures which I'm trying to turn into a side business. I have now added small wolly type hats to them made of stretchable polyester from loose fabric. I normally hand stitch but want a more professional look and need a basic sewing machine for the job. I won't need it for anything else apart from this so don't want to spend alot at all.

    Can anyone recommend a sewing machine for a complete beginner.

    Any basic machine by Janome is likely to do the trick.
