Help me shop sewing machines!

I got the a-ok from DH that I can get one for our anniversery present since I'm buying him some Microsoft Points (that boy and his video games!) So help me shop for me: the newbie!

This one is cheap. I dont want to spend alot of money..just incase. I go through fads sometimes.


Slightly more money.

So help me out mommas! I do not have a craft store around here, I live in a small town and lucky to have a Walmart. I'm thinking of going to Goodwill and peek around some yard sales if there are some this weekend and see if I can find a used one. If not, gonna get me a new one!

Re: Help me shop sewing machines!

This is my first sewing machine:
I like it, never had problems with it that I could not fix. However, I bought it thinking I would use it just for basics. I slowly was getting more into sewing and one day wanted to try sewing with knit fabrics. This is when my problems started. My simple sewing machine didn't have the option of getting a walking foot. I tried different suggestions for sewing knits w/o a walking foot but no matter what I did I didn't like the results. So ... I ended up buying another sewing machine from And a walking foot. It's not expensive and I wish I knew better when I was shopping for a sewing machine. The machine I bought from Sears is this one: wing+machine&prdNo=5&blockNo=5&blockType=G5
You can buy it on sale for $129 sometimes.
Good luck!
