How much should you pay for a good sewing machine?
A good quality sewing machine will cost you at least $150 while more professional, industrial or specialized quilting and embroidery models can easily reach $1000 to $5000. Children’s sewing machines can be bought for under $60 but don’t offer very high quality or durability.
How long does it take to learn to use a sewing machine?
I would say anywhere from a few months to a couple years. I’ve been sewing for 15 years and I still learn new techniques all the time. There are a lot of things you will need to know.
