How to choose
How we test

When choosing from the best sewing machine for you, there are several things to considering, including its functions and features, built quality and, of course, your budget. If you're an experienced sewer a more expensive machine is best as it will last many years. In my list I've chosen my favourite sewing machines, including the best sewing machine for clothes and the best sewing machine for beginners.
