Default Re: Please recommend a quality, affordable sewing machine.

I sew on a 1954 Kenmore that I love, but Sky wanted something sleeker, easier to set-up, and less unwieldy to use. We bought her the Singer model with 19 stitch options and a 4-step button-hole for $63.00 on a lightening deal on Amazon just last week. I would recommend either that one or the basic Brother machine (which I believe has 25 or 27 stitches). They are both serviceable machines and good for beginners. I'll post back with the model numbers as soon as I have time to look them up.

The Brother is XM2701, and the Singer is 2259 Tradition model.
