Am new to magic mum, saw that there are a lot of enthusiastic crafters on this site so decided to join in! Have started sewing over the last year or so, home decor stuff, bunting, christmas decorations, cushions things like that. I currently have a very basic machine, lidl singer one. It does give me some bother intermittently, and now I am at the stage that it won't do what I want from a machine. I really want to start freemotion sewing, I bought the foot for my singer but it really isn't suitable, ended up giving up on it. So I have decided on a new machine. In the long run I want to try some quilting too, along with freemotion and embroidery. I spoke to the guy in Waterford over the phone, explained what I want to use the machine for. I am relatively new to sewing, with very little skill, but plenty of enthusiasm! He suggested either the pfaff ambition essential €649 or the elna 520 (I think) ~€449. Have tried to look up reviews of same, and they seem to be quite mixed for that particular pfaff machine. Anyone out there have it, or would they recommend any other particular machine. The max I would spend would be ~ €649, and I don't want to outgrow the machine any time soon iykwim! Any advise would be greatly appreciated...
I didn't find the right solution from the internet.
