Well I finally did it. I sold my singer 281 industrial machine for an upgrade. I have been looking at walking foot sewing machines for the past month. These machines sew the thickest leather and most car upholstery shops use them. You can sew everything except very light fabric, and knits.
What made me upgrade? I have been looking for a nice suede hand bag for the last 2 years. The ones I like were 800 up, and nothing fancy about them. So this year I started looking for my bag and buddy husband said, I don't see why you don't make a suede bag you make everything else. And if you follow my blog you know he's always right.
I found a brand new Tac-sew walking foot machine online for 798, I was going to purchase the Tacsew but after doing some research, I found that they have quite a few issues even the new ones. I was able to find a used Consew machine for 899 locally. Of course you know I didn't want to pay that for a used machine. Then I thought "Would you rather have a used Mercedes Benz in excellent shape? Or a Brand New Honda".
servo motor which is so quiet that you don't know that the machine is on. You can dial the speed to go as slow as you want or as fast as you want. I ended up paying a little more than 1,100 I am sure I am going to love driving my used Mercedes.
