Sewing Machine FAQ

Which is the best sewing machine for home use?

There is no right or wrong answer to purchasing a sewing machine for use at home. The best sewing machine is the one that meets all of your requirements. We stock plenty of leading brands and wonderful sewing machines that we’d be happy to discuss with you. Two things to consider are; what kind of projects are you planning to do and what is your budget? This will give you a good starting point when searching.

What is a good sewing machine brand?

Sewing machines from any leading brands such as Singer, Brother, Janome and others are all often safe bets when it comes to purchasing a new machine. At Sewingtime, however, we are proud to stock world-famous Juki domestic sewing machines, one of the best performing machines money can buy.

What is the most reliable brand of sewing machines?

We believe Juki are also the most reliable brand to buy. Owning a reliable machine will make a huge difference for a number of reasons. Firstly, when machines break it isn’t fun. Repairs may be costly. Secondly, reliable machines will be easier to maintain over time and experience fewer issues along the line. Finally, having fewer issues to contend with will mean a happier time when sewing. How you care for your machine will affect reliability. Look after your machine and it will look after you.
