Depends on your budget, expertise level (beginner, intermediate, advanced), plans for use (i.e. will you be traveling with your machine/taking it to classes? if so, then its important to find a light-weight portable machine).

One good machine is the Brother CS6000i- it's low price (around $145) and brother sewing machines have great track records (good quality and long lasting). 

That's just one suggestion though - there are plenty other good machines <$200, by diff companies (i.e. Singer, Janome) - just do a little research to find one that best fits your needs/preferences.

Needed to replaced my old machine for a while, so recently purchased this Brother machine (pic below) and loving it so far.

With summer approaching, I'm sewing some long tops/tunics and full floor length dresses and skirts, using mainly cottons, linens, and chiffon (ideal fabrics for warm weather).

Will try to post pics of completed garments.

- Practice. Practice. Practice. (Really this applies to beginners and advance seamstresses.)


ClapGood to know.... I think I may get a sewing manual

The reviews are very mixed. Take caution, hun! I think there's better out there and in the same price range!

I was looking at this one http://www.amazon.com/Michley-LSS-505-Multi-Purpose-Built-In-Stitches/dp/B0021L9322 It seems to have some decent reviews. Hmmmm

Not the kind of skater dress I'd wear and the top was rather loose for her, but she did a lovely job and made it look so easy! How creative of her to make her own patterns. When I master pattern usage, I'll learn to make my own. :D
