The question I get asked most often: "Do you have any suggestions for sewing machines that don't cost too much?" I would tell you that you should view the purchase of a sewing machine as a long-term investment. I got my first sewing machine, which was good quality, 18 years ago. It is now in the hands of my cousin and it still works very well.

By clicking on the image, you will have more details about the machine.
This is the machine we use during classes at the workshop. It is perfect for beginners because you can adjust the speed. On the other hand, its price is quite high, more than $600. We bought our machines from Michel Barette . If you are in Montreal, don't hesitate to call him. You'll see, he's super friendly. Thinking, you will say hello to him for me. 😉 You never know, maybe he’ll give you a good price!
I have only listed a few sewing machines, there are really several others that could do the trick. I went with the recommendations I read and the interesting features of the machines. If you ever hesitate between two machines that I have not mentioned above, do not hesitate to write to me, I will be happy to help you in your choice of machine.
