Industrial vs home sewing machine
I’m kind of curious, how many of you that sew for a business (out of home) use an industrial sewing machine vs a home sewing machine? In one of my classes (coture dressmaking) my teacher is insisting I use the industrial machines in the classroom, we also have some older Bernina’s. I have both a bernina 1530 and a Viking D1 at home and have no intention of buying an industrial, but she insists that when I get used to it I will never want to go back to a home sewing machine.
I am starting up a small business of making prom gowns (homecoming/ Christmas dance) for the high school in my area , will I need a machine that can handle more work than my bernina?
Thanks for the input – also if you have an industrial machine, which kind do you have? do they come with needle up/needle down settings?
