Best Sewing Machines for Home in India

Its always better to have a mini sewing  machine in every home in order to save your money and it will be helpful in case of emergency, we can stitch anytime without depending on tailors.

Sewing Machine helps tailors in the best way to stitch different materials together with the help of a thread and needle. The fabric or leather is joined together by various types of stitches; lockstitch or chain stitch. The machine makes stitches with the help of thread from two origins.

The thread from above is sewing into the fabric and is brought up with the thread in the bobbin; the feed dog helps in continuous movement. This process is repeated until we desire for the best design and garment.

Buying guide : sewing machines

How do tailors understand the criteria for the best Sewing Machines?

Before we get a better performing sewing machine to our homes, must check for the following:

Availability of Automatic Buttonholer:

Automatic Buttonholer helps us to make a button hole at ease, without destroying the fabric. The best machines provide this facility, so that without any difficulty a button can be fit in, as the machine sews the buttonhole.

Adjustment of the Feed Dog:

Feed dogs are like uneven metal claws, an important component for sewing machine. With the help of this feature, one can go for easy and flawless, better looking embroidery stitching, which is not available in the traditional sewing machines.

User friendly, comfort and functional design:

The machine we choose must be user-friendly, by having easy controls so that it does not get stuck while working and gives its best performnace.

Easy to carry:

The sewing machine must be light in weight, so that it is easy to carry and even store. A sewing machine with a handle on top is always on demand.

Flexible Needle Position:

The needle must be flexible enough, so that we can move it all around, while stitching, and it moves on the cloth without any hindrances. Because of this, the pressure foot can be easily used.

Needle Threader:

The presence of Needle threader will help us overcome the tedious task of putting the thread through the eye of the needle. It saves time and even our energy.

Presser Feet:

The number of Presser Feet depends on the type of sewing machine we choose to use. For best basic stitching, one needs to have a multi-purpose foot for zig zag and straight stitches.

          For composite stitching, zipper foot and buttonhole foot is necessary.

There are different sewing machines available, according to the requirement we must choose, from the adjustable presser foot, which makes the stitching comfortable.

Power on and off:

When we have a power switch it is easier to avoid any circuit issues and maintain the sewing machine well and will have longer durability.

Speed Control:

There will be perfect stitch if we have the speed controls. The fabric will also not lose its quality and we can stitch without much interruption.

Strength of the thread:

This is known as tension adjustment. According to the stitching, the thread has to be adjusted. One has to check for the maximum length of the stitch and size of the machine (width) before buying a sewing machine.

Loading the Bobbin:

Now-a-days we get sewing machines with top load bobbin, making it easier to fix the thread, and it has a transparent cover to make it visible enough to change the thread when it is running out.

 Sewing Machine VS Hand Sewing

        To be honest, both have their own best qualities which make them stand out.

Hand SewingSewing Machine
Takes time to complete a taskCompletes the task faster
Fabric can be best handled as the tailor wishes.Fabric can be adjusted only to certain extent
More durableMight be loose and unravel anytime, if not finished well.

Built-up of Mechanical Sewing Machines

          The body of the sewing machine works in its best way if it is made of aluminum, but it again depends on the manufacturing company and the chosen model. They can be either stand based or placed on the table, manually peddled. Now-a-days, these paddled ones are substituted by the electric motor. Treadle sewing machines use large amount of space and cannot be moved easily.

The modern Mechanical Sewing Machines have come up with LED screen to choose the type of stitch, and have become more sophisticated. But these are best suited for beginners and for domestic tailoring.

 Best Sewing Machine for Embroidery

          Embroidery machines help us design many types of embroidery patterns to be stitched on the fabric. We can simply attach embroidering presser foot to an electronic machine and get the embroidery done.

To begin with, one can use a simple zig zag machine, as you get experience and become the best professional taolior, can go for electronic machine because this machine has many patterns which can be used perfectly by the regular tailors. Embroidery machines are pretty expensive.

    How does Overlocker Sewing Machine work?

            As we discussed, that these sewing machines give a finished look, Overlocker Machines, as the name suggests, cuts the edges of the garment with an in-built cutter and makes loops beginning from 1 loop to around 5 loops according to the best need. There is also an option available to choose the length and width of the stitch.

    The design depends on the number of threaded overlocks, single threaded overlock to five threaded overlock. Higher the number, stronger the overlock would be. In India three threaded overlock stitch pattern is considered best for different garments.
