Sew What?

I think I want to get a sewing machine. I want to make all kinds of cool shizz like pillows. Yes! Pillows with ZIPPERS!  Also, I may wish to make dog bed for the kiddos (who are actually dogs. I don't make my nonexistent human children sleep in a dog bed). I am appealing to you crafty chicas out there to give me some feedback if you have any! 

I'm thinking about purchasing this dude here: 

At almost $90, its an investment, but I think you get what you pay for with this type of stuff. What do you think? Any other models/ brands I should look at? 



  1. Let me know what you find out. I'm kind of interested in getting one. I just don't have the space for one.

  2. I just bought a refurbished one on Overstock....Singer 7000's series and I love was $110!

  3. Cant remember how much mine was (got it in college) but its a Bernina and came majorly recommended. It's sewn all sorts of nifty things for me :) Quality is super important if you're doing upholstery work since the machine has to be able to handle super thick fabric doubled up on itself.

  4. Good call, you guys. I bought this one but I think I may return it since I just assumed that it would be good for heavy fabrics, but after ready reviews it said nothing about upholstery work (which is what I would mostly be using it for).



Leave a comment! I'd love to hear from you!
