Hey y’all, first visit here from my “home” at BT and Knots..yeah, it’s me Duane.
I fixed an old Singer for the DW ( dear wife) about 5 yrs ago..she reported to me today it is TU..( uhh, I mean dead)..sorry.
She does custom wall art..hangings and such..( never sews Carhartts so far)..so she needs some kinda gizmo that doesn’t have to perform all the “fancy” stuff, like sewing my carhartts or the holes that buttons actually go into without a few straggler threads that get confused, and swallow the button ( like my carhartts do)..
I want to allocate..( sure ya do, yeah right) about 250.00 for a basic, sewing machine..I have repaired many Singers and Kenmores…I can handle it..but I want to get her a new one, not a new problem..
Ought I peruse a used? or just go to Sears and get a Kenmore?
BTW, she does have a say in this, and is looking at a Janome L-344…but to me, it reeks of cheap, begginer type stuff.
Any help is welcome.
Like I said, maybe y’all can recommend a solid machine without me having to keep fixing it?
Thank you , Duane
