I get excited when someone tells me they took a sewing class and enjoyed it. It means that person will be getting inspired and will be creating. I love it! This happened recently to Jessica. Jessica followed up asking me what sewing machines would be a good investment to start with, especially for garment sewing and alterations. Here are a few I recommend depending on your price range:
- Brother Sewing and Quilting Machine, CS6000i, 60 Built-In Stitches, 7 styles of 1-Step Auto-Size Buttonholes, Wide Table, Hard Cover, LCD Display and Auto Needle Threader

If you want a Sewing machine and Embroidery Machine, I recommend this one for a beginner. This one has great reviews on Amazon.

4. Bernette B38 Sewing Machine If you don’t mind spending more than $500 for a beginner sewing machine, the Bernina Bernette B38 is a great one to start with. I do love Berninas, since I have a Bernina Artista 640.

I love my Bernina Artista 640 which is now discontinued. But at the time I purchased it, I spent about $3K on it. When you are ready to take on more serious projects, I highly recommend a Bernina. It’s very durable and the engine runs smooth. Feel free to check out more Berninas on their website: https://www.bernina.com/en-US/Home-United-States
I hope this helps you Jessica and those exploring sewing machines. Feel free to ask me any questions. Remember, I highly recommend reading the reviews.
Here are my favorite scissors I work with:
Have a wonderful Labor Day!
