What’s the best basic sewing machine?
I’m a man and don’t sew much but once in a while I need to. I’ve had sewing machines in the past and borrowed from friends but I find them hard to thread and liable to tangles and clumps of thread while sewing. The user manuals (when I can find one) aren’t much help.
Maybe one of the veterans on this chat could advise me. I’d like to get a real basic portable machine that WORKS RELIABLY. I’d rather have a high quality machine than a cheap one. I’ve seen a Bernina Bernette 65 and a Janome Sewist 509 and they look OK, but is there a better one? Would something used be appropriate?
Thanks in Advance.
