Mechanical or Computerized Machine?
Recently my 20 year old workhorse mixer broke and I replaced it comparably but the difference in “modern technology” is unbelievable! At the lowest speed it has 10 times the power that my old mixer had at it’s highest speed!
So I began to think about what improvements there must be in sewing machines as well.
I don’t know how old my machine is but it’s minimally 20 years old and is getting temperamental. I’d also love a big selection of stitches. So I’ve been looking for a replacement and I’m really not sure what the difference in quality of sewing is between a comparably priced mechanical or computerized machine?
Specifically, I’m looking at the Brother CS6000i or XL3510. They each offer many, many stitches and what I need and they are highly rated.
My concern about a computerized machine is that if something happens I’ve got to take it to the shop but most of what goes wrong in a mechanical machine is easily fixable.
Your thoughts, please?
