    I love the self threading and trimimg threads are a rwal plus. For the serger it is self-threading and a true treasure! The Sashiko sews the Japanese style stitching and it also looks like hand quilted stitching. These machines have made sewing a complete and total joy!

    I have a babylock machine and a babylock serger. I love sewing. I wish the serger had a smaller foot for helping with doll clothes. I am still trying to learn the shoes. I have bought numerous patterns but my fingers just can not seem to get together with the small areas or something/ I keep trying though.

    I’ve used a Janome 6260 that I purchased 10 years ago. The buttonhole attachment/program wasn’t working so I decided to buy a new machine rather than spend the money on fixing. I bought a Brother Project Runway model 6000i after researching and reading dozens of reviews. I don’t like the stitch on the new machine, it often skips (tried different threads/needles per booklet) but am just not happy. I’m back with the Janome (workhorse) for all sewing, except making buttonholes. I wish I would have invested in repairing the machine I liked.

    I use an old school sewing machine. The thing I like most about it is that my mother bought it for me the year I got married. It was my very first sewing machine of my own, and although it’s basic and doesn’t have all the bells and whistles of newer fancier machines, I adore using my sentimental machine.

    I have a Brother combination seeing and embroidery machine. The thing I like most is the ability to do so many things on this machine. I sew, embroider, and quilt with my “Big Brother.” But Big Brother isn’t the only machine in my studio. There’s Sergio, my Babylock serger; Tim, my Project Runway seeing machine, and Bernie; the Bernina. They are all wonderful machines, and I love them all!

    I use a Singer. The thing I like most about it is NOTHING! I was going to skip today’s giveaway when I saw what I had to say. I have a 2 year old Singer that makes me cry almost every time I sew. I have had it in the shop more times than I can count. I have called customer service 3 times for problems too. I got a lemon with this machine, I even gave it a 1 star review on their site. I really want a machine that makes sewing fun and exciting! I hope that day comes sometime in my life time.

    I use a pfaff creative 3.0 that followed me home from the sewing expo 3 years ago. I love this machine for being so user friendly. I don’t really have time or patience to spend arguing with my machine, I just want to sew. I love the needle down feature, the auto thread trimmer, the auto threader & the built in walking foot, features my previous machines didn’t have & SO worth the investment! I also use a basic serger, mostly for finishing seams and occasional construction of knits.
    My first memory of sewing was on my grandma’s treadle sewing machine. It was a fun machine, but I think I will stick with my Pfaff :) I didn’t sew for many years, so I am learning some of the basics all over again. Some things come back to me…. like riding a bike…. & a few are like falling off that bike, lol but it has been interesting to see how much I do remember & it’s been fun trying new things. Much thanks to Pixie Faire & the pattern designer’s for their awesome patterns that are easy to follow, complete with pictures! You have definitely played a part in my renewed love of sewing!

    I use a basic Kenmore sewing machine most of the time and the thing I like most about it is that it is easy to use. Besides, I’ use to it. I also use a Featherweight, that I just acquired this past year. I haven’t used it too much, but it is perfect for sewing doll clothes. When I get my sewing room set up properly, it will be used a lot more.

    My sewing machine is a standard one. It is for quilting, but is a basic machine, I like it because ii is very easy to use, I am familiar with it. The thing I do not like is that my machine does not want to go fast and sewing knit fabric is not an easy task. But I am planning on keep it with me for many years to come.

    I use a fairly basic machine that has differential feed, an adjustable needle position and will sew a great satin stitch. I mainly use the open toe or quarter inch foot. I was making quilts for ten or more years and haven’t totally given that up. But my current passion is sewing doll clothes. They also require quarter inch seams and small pieces!

    I currently have a Brother machine and my old Elna serger. I have been sewing since I was a little girl using scraps from mom’s remnants to make doll clothes for my Sunshine Family dolls. Still enjoy making doll clothes because they don’t take a lot of fabric and it takes me away from the day-to-day pressures.

    I use a Brother CSl-600i for basic sewing. The things I like most about it is that it was very reasonably priced, is a solid performer for standard sewing, handles most challenges (like patching my husband’s jeans) with aplomb, adds an astonishing range of extras like fancy stitches and automatic buttonholes, and is super-lightweight, making it easy to tote with one hand.

    Now, gentle reader, before you pooh-pooh my shift in allegiance from solid, all-metal mechanical machines, please understand that I’ve been sewing for over 50 years and have paid my dues. I learned to sew on my grandmother’s converted-to-electric treadle machine. My first sewing machine was a wedding gift from my husband in 1972, a Singer Stylist that weighed as much as me. And I stuck with those solid behemoths until 2013 when my Singer Merritt could no longer be repaired. I read reviews, counted pennies, and pondered. Then I took the plunge, ordered my inexpensive electronic Brother (with a 25 year warranty) and have never looked back. In fact, I deepened my interest by purchasing the Brother SE-400 (combination sewing and 4″×4″ embroidery machine) and most recently with the Brother PE770 (5″×7″ embroidery and the least fussy machine I’ve ever owned).

    True, many of my friends have migrated to expensive, but amazing machines, but for my needs, Brother is just fine. At my age when toting a gallon of milk from the car to the house is challenging, I like being able to take my sewing machine to church or another location easily. And the extra decorative stitches make it easy to add special touches to my doll clothes.

My Mama taught me to sew as a child and I spent many hours in the fabric departments with her and my Grandma.

It was the first major purchase I ever made on my own and the first time I bought something on credit. I have 3 Kenmore machines – my mothers, mine and one that I purchased last year from the shop that does the maintenance on mine. The owner of the shop told me to never give that machine away as it is one of the last models to be made of all metal – not plastic. The machine I bought from him is the exact same model as mine.

    I use the same Kenmore cabinet machine that I made my son’s first day of Kindergarten Levi outfit on, and he’s 47 years old now! It runs so smoothly, no jamming up, and has a completely automatic buttonholer that you choose the exact size—in regular, keyhole or eyelet, do a one minute setup, and press pedal. Turns out perfect every time! I found a matching portable, which also runs like a top, this past summer at a rummage sale and snapped it up for $25—will now be selling my 5 year old Viking/Husqvarna (sp?) portable that causes me no end of grief when I use it! Both Kenmores have design cams for simple patterns, though do have to say the embroidery machines are amazing but too complicated for me. I am thinking of getting an economical serger.

    I use a Singer sewing machine and what I like most about it is that it is a good machine for basic sewing and light enough to take it with me so I can sew anywhere!

    I have a Kenmore sewing machine that was made by Janome. It was great to travel with. Also have a Babylock serger that has automatic threading. Love it!

    I use a Pfaff sewing machine and the thing I like most about it is that it is so dependable. It is 56 years old!

    I use a Bernina 155. What I like about it is the consistency of its stitches and tension, and just about everything else.

    I recently retired from teaching middle and high school home economics. Over the years I have been able to try many different kinds of machines. But I will stay with my tried and true Kenmore. My first Kenmore was my high school graduation present from my parents in 1971. Still runs well except the reverse. So I finally broke down 20 years ago and bought myself another Kenmore. Hard working and all mechanical so I can fix any small thing that goes wrong. I have waited for weeks to get a repair for a computerized machine in a classroom which is tough when the students have deadlines to meet. I have said for a long time that the fancy touches to any outfit come from the choice of fabric, the design of the pattern and the appropriate trim s used, not the machine it was made on.

    I have a Singer and a Brother, the singer is new to me and it is nice to have one that all stitches work, the brother is now for the ruffle, so I don’t have to switch every time I want to use it.

    I use a Kenmore that I bought back in 1990. The thing I love about it is that so far it has never given me any problems.

    I use a Bernina industrial and an old Singer Featherweight for classes. I have an old singer serger. The industrial machine is fast and will sew through anything.

    I use a Elna Quilters Queen sewing machine and I love it because it’s easy to use & has a lot of neat stitches! I have done a lot of sewing with it, from all types of clothing to bedding, to buttonholes..etc.

    I use a Pfaff machine with all the bells and whistles when I bought other 22 years ago. The thing I love is ease of going from one stitch pattern to another. I had a server but it jammed and I got rid of it.

    I have 3 machines I use. A Babylock Elissimo Gold embroidery/sewing machine, a Babylock 8-thread serger and the Babylock Sashiko machine. I love the self threading and trimimg threads are a rwal plus. For the serger it is self-threading and a true treasure! The Sashiko sews the Japanese style stitching and it also looks like hand quilted stitching. These machines have made sewing a complete and total joy!
