I've checked out some sites for learning how to sew and which sewing machines to purchase. Do I got with Mechanical or Electronic for my first sewing machine?
The Brother XL-2600i seems to be the most popular Mechanical sewing machine and the Brother CS6000I seems to be the most popular basic Electronic sewing machine
I don't have a sewing machine yet, and that's where my dilemma begins. If I buy this, will I use it? I did just join Stampin' Up not less than a year ago and I have been stamping and have a lot of fun. Not as frequently as I could be but you can only make cards for so many people right. That's my fear with sewing. Will I run out of things to make/people to make things for? I love the idea of being able to make beautiful quilts and bags,
all of which I know will take me some serious time to learn and become decent at. I certainly wouldn't take on a project this large for my first one either. The Mr. is in support of it if I want to get a sewing machine, so that's not a problem.
So do I take the plunge? If so, Mechanical or Electronic for my first machine? What should I take on for a first project? Any recommendations to a newbie?
