What sewing machine do you have?
Hi everyone,

I only recently got rid of my old, brandless crappy sewing machine and invested in a Brother LS-2125.
I'm very pleased with my machine, but I only use it for very basic sewing to be honest..

I'm curious what kind of machine everyone on here has?
feel free to post pics

I have a really old Singer model, the crack handle ones which my Grandad installed a motor and peddle on 8D Such a good machine!

I have a Husqvarna Viking H class e20 =3

served pretty well, we have had our falling outs from time to time but on the whole a faithful machine xD

haha I got a privileg, love it ♥
And a brother apparently. WHICH I also really love.

I've been sewing with different machines at friend's houses ...~ machines such as singer, pfaff, medion, bernina...
and I have to say that I really like BROTHER sewing machines! they r not too loud...and do their job~
In sense of long term relationship It's definitely privileg...good quality stuff *-* And it wasn't broken once and I used that one like for the past 6 years basically since I started cosplaying ....it never let me down XDDD haha ♥

the worst I ever sewed with is MEDION. don#t ever buy that one. it is no good...........XD°

CHEERS!!
KC

Cool to read everyones stories!

I do find that my brother is very quiet (as far as sewing machines can be..) too, which is really nice!

I have a Toyota Quiltmaster RS2000.

When I first got it I laughed that it was made by Toyota and made jokes that I could motor away with it. But it's actually a fairly decent machine.

I don't know any better though, it's the only machine I have ever used. Except for random tries from college and friend's machines.

I use a Janome 2050 and I love it to bits. I've had it just over a year and it's pretty easy to use.
It's only ever been used for basic things but that's mainly because I'm still not a very confident sewer.

I use a frister and rossmann (not sure which exact machine). It was given to me by a family friend, it does the basic stuff and I like it ^^

I have a brand new Janome XL601, it's epic xD however I have found that universal needles don't work well, you have to change the needle for each different fabric and stuff

I've got a Newhome 535 that my Mum bought in the 80s. It's still going strong

It looks like this one

I don’t actually have my own sewing machine but I have access to this one at my parent’s house:



The brand is Seamstress but I don’t know what model it is. It’s a manual machine – no electrics here – and it only does a basic straight stitch but it allowed me to successfully make my harlequin costume. . It’s incredibly heavy too.

i have 2 sowing machines.
One my mum gave me and my partner bought me a Toyota over-locker for xmas but i have yet to figure out how to use it properly lol

I also have the X5 and I think it's great. Does the job for everything I need it for.

wow amazing to the pics of the old school sewing machines!! I see them in antique shops yet and I'd always love to have one just as an ornament, haha.

I have a John Lewis mini sewing machine in bright red
http://www.johnlewis.com/jl-mini-sewing-machine/p367714?colour=Red

Basically I wanted a sewing machine for simple cosplay stuff and to learn on (I'd never used a sewing machine before) and didn't want to spend a lot of money on something I most likely wasn't going to use very often. I did find cheaper machines than the John Lewis one, but they all got awful reviews, this one was the cheapest I could find that people actually respected. They are normally about £50 and come in a range of colours and some times are on offer for less. Don't think it will last 30+ years though.

As it goes, I think it does a good job, it has straight and zig zag stiches and works just fine, if you thread it right... It can be a little tricky and slightly counter intuitive to thread. If I was doing more sewing I might think about getting a better one, preferable one that thread's itself, has a light and thread cutter and variable speed control, but for now, its doing fine and is good value for money.
