Investing in a Premium Sewing Machine

by Beth Cooper

Hey, you! Yeah, you. I see you, Intermediate Quilter! Are you still sewing on that beginner-level sewing machine that you started out on? Have you thought about upgrading? There are a lot of benefits to a sewing machine with more options! These machines are what you need for more advanced sewing projects.

This Baby Lock Presto II machine is certainly not a beginner’s machine but also not the most expensive machine in the Baby Lock lineup. You can find it online at Missouri Star Quilt Co. or by clicking here.
  1. Precision Stitching

One of the key advantages of investing in a premium sewing machine from a respected brand is the unmatched precision it offers. These machines are engineered with advanced technology that ensures your stitches are consistent, smooth, and perfectly spaced. The stitch quality is exceptional, making it a crucial factor for quilters and sewers aiming for professional-grade results. Whether you’re piecing intricate quilt blocks or working on delicate garments, the precision stitching capabilities of high-end machines will set your work apart.

  1. Speed and Power

Premium sewing machines are equipped with powerful motors that allow for faster stitching speeds without compromising stitch quality. This is particularly valuable for quilters who need to complete large quilts or tackle intricate designs efficiently. The additional power ensures the machine can handle thicker fabrics and multiple layers with ease, providing versatility in your sewing projects.

This Janome Horizon Memory Craft 9410Q is a beauty, not to mention an incredible workhorse! Find it on Sewing Machines Plus or at your local dealer.
  1. Wide Variety of Stitches

Name-brand sewing machines often offer an extensive range of built-in stitches. These stitches go beyond the basic straight and zigzag options, giving you the creative freedom to experiment with decorative stitches, embroidery patterns, and more. Whether you’re adding intricate details to your quilts or embellishing your clothing projects, having access to a wide variety of stitches can significantly expand your creative horizons.

  1. Automated Features

Premium sewing machines come equipped with a plethora of automated features that simplify the sewing process. These include automatic thread cutting, needle threading, and thread tension adjustment. Such features not only save time but also reduce the frustration often associated with threading and tension adjustments, allowing you to focus on your creative work rather than technicalities.

  1. Large Workspaces and Specialty Accessories

Many high-end sewing machines are designed with spacious work areas, making it easier to manage larger projects like quilts. Additionally, they often come with specialty accessories such as quilting feet, walking feet, and embroidery attachments. These accessories enhance the machine’s versatility and ensure you have the right tools for every project, from quilting to dressmaking.

  1. Durability and Longevity

Investing in a name-brand premium sewing machine often means investing in quality and durability. These machines are built to withstand years of use, ensuring that your investment pays off in the long run. You can trust that your machine will continue to perform at a high level, even as you tackle more complex and demanding projects.

Where to Buy

The best place to shop for a new sewing machine is at your local quilt shop or local sewing machine dealer. The benefits to buying local are great. For you, it usually means in-person instruction on your new machine, personal set-up, and support is just a phone call away. For the seller, it keeps small businesses in business. If you can’t buy local, there are some great and reputable online dealers of name-brand sewing machines. Missouri Star Quilt Co. carries the Baby Lock brand while Sewing Machines Plus carries a variety of name-brand sewing machines, longarm machines, and accessories. Both of these shops are great online resources.

Is This Your Sign?

So, if you’re looking to take your quilting and sewing to the next level, consider exploring the idea of buying a premium sewing machine! Your creativity deserves nothing but the best.
