You know I have been dying to get my hands on a new sewing machine. I was thinking maybe a brother or singer would be good since I've read many good reviews on them.

I am also planning on taking some classes hehe good luck!

I have a Singer. It's good for basic work. Course if you want to get 'fancy', you could get a industrial sewing machine.. definitely can handle thicker fabrics and all that. Also a lot more expensive. :(

i have an all metal 70's kenmore, two 20's nechi, an 80's brother and a modern huskylock serger. if you want to do fancy stitching like embroidery definitely get a new machine, but if you want a heavy duty machine, go with the old, they can sew through leather, denim and everything else (and they look real classy too!)

I learned how to sew on my mother's "Pfaff" sewing machine (I think the company already busted some years ago...) but now I have my own one: I recently found a 57 year old Singer sewing machine on a flew market and it still works great! I'm so happy to have it, it looks like I've stolen it at a museum :) I only suggest not to buy a extremely cheap one, I don't have good experiences with them... Unfortunately.
