Shopping for sewing machines is fun but it’s also a lot of work. The question I get the most often has to do with comparing different models to better understand the variances. This was what drove my mother crazy when she tried to find a great machine for my nieces.
It’s been a couple of months in the works but Sewing Machines for Beginners officially launches a new tool on our site that we hope will make some of that comparison process a bit easier.
Temporarily dubbed the Sewing Machine Finder, it lets you enter a few important details and see a list of sewing machines that meet those details. From that list, you can choose up to 3 machines to compare side by side.
I’m sure it will need tweaking along the way and it only includes those sewing machines we’ve already reviewed so it’s not all encompassing but it might help you sift through all the noise and get down to a few machines that suit you best.
If you’ve got a few minutes, give it a try and let me know what you think. After weeks of driving my programmer crazy (Thanks, Prashaant!), I’ve been anxious to release this for others to try.
You can see our new little toy here:
(Already my mother would like me to get away from all the PURPLE on the finder pages. She’s the artist in the family so I’m headed her way in a few weeks to see if she can’t draw something special for me to use as a background in the future!)
