good and cheap sewing machine?

HELP! i am a hand sewer and is sick of hand sewing. and the search of finding a sewing machine was been going on for over 5 months now.

any cheap sewing machines? like under $60 please? and do you own it? i am a beginner. (i already know how to machine sew)i like to make plushies, like dumplings, cookies, chao, etc. let it be a simple to use sewing machine, please. 🙂

You might try a local sew and vac repair shop or a sewing machine dealer that takes in trade-ins. They fix some of them up for sale and sometimes you can get a good older machine that has been serviced and is ready to go.

If you have a particular brand in mind, join one of the yahoo groups for that brand -- Kenmore, Singer, Necchi, Bernina, Elna and Viking are some of them. Read the message archives or join right in and ask. Some of the people fix up older metal machines, straight stitch or zig zag, and sell them reasonably. Someone might live in your area and can be a help to you.

Other places are church sales, local thrift shops, and Craigslist. You can ask to see if the machine sews if you check out machines on Craigslist, because you are getting it from someone. Take thread and some material. Thrift stores may let you try it out, but sometimes not. The drawback with either of these is that sometimes they don't work correctly and you might have to take it in for servicing which could cost more than an oiling and lube. There are other times when you just might luck out and get one that is ready to go.

You do need to know the basics if you are getting from thrift or CL because if it is supposed to have a bobbin case and does not, or if the tension assembly is missing, or the presser feet, power cords or foot controller are not there, you will have extra expenses.

If you are a novice at sewing machines, ebay can be a disaster. If the seller does not know how to pack the machine correctly, it can be damaged in shipping and usually is.

If you like new plastic machines, there are always the basic machines at Sears or at Walmart. I'd go with Sears, personally, because every
once in a while, someone returns a machine, and I have seen them up for sale pretty cheap. You just buy the sears guarantee, so if something is wrong they will replace it for free. We did that when we got my daughter's sewing machine. It was a return, and we got it at a great discount. Sometimes a floor model is available for reasonable.

Good Luck. You will find something that suits you.
