So you're thinking of buying a new sewing machine and you want to know what is the best one to buy.
It's like asking, "what car should I buy?" There are so many different ones out there, and they all have their strengths and weaknesses. First set yourself a budget, find out what features you want/need, and think about what you really plan to use the machine for, and then go to a sewing machine dealer and start your shopping. When you buy a machine, you are buying into a dealer, so make sure you click with the sales person. If you don't like the sales person, you're not going to like the machine.
Don't buy the first machine you see, you want to shop around and see what options you have. Take something you plan on sewing and see if the machine does okay with it. You would not buy a car without test driving it, why would you a sewing machine? It might look good, but feel good for you? What do the stitches look like? Is it easy to use? Does the machine sound like a sewing machine or a jack hammer? Does it have metal parts or plastic? Can the warranty be extended? Where do you have to take the machine for warranty work? Does it come with a class on how to use the machine? By all means take the class as you will pick up something useful from it. Don't be afraid to take the floor model, you'll get a better price.
Hope this helps with your new machine purchase. Have the mindset of it being a fun experience and it will be!
