New sewing machine

beccagrace | Posted in General Discussion on

My family purchase a new sewing machine for me.  Before I break it out of the box I need to make sure it has the features I desire.  I have been using a Singer 401 for well over 40 years. Definitely needed a new machine.  The macine my family purchased for me is a Kenmore 19233.  Anybody out there have any thoughts about this new machine or suggestion on the kind of machine i should be considering.

        Wow!  Sounds like lots of fun!  Make sure you read the instruction book, and since it is electronic, treat it like a computer (unplug it from the wall if a thunder storm comes near!)

          Becky.....I am considering upgrading to the next level of machine because of several key factors.  My main concern is that the Kenmore is a good product and my family spent their money for the right machine.  Last night I spent hours researcing the informatin.  But I am not at the point where I need just good honest opinions from experienced sewers.  The Kenmore has a 90 warranty on parts.  I need to compare that to other manufacturers.  These new machines  are so different.  They don't intimidate me, just want to make sure I have a good maching for 300 to 500 dollars.


          thanks for you opinion.
