I've been looking for a new electric sewing machine - not had one for years, but now I've got the time, I can make dining chair pads, cushion covers, curtains, bedding and the odd skirt or top. I want one that has a top-loading bobbin, automatic threader and will do stretch stitches so I can sew jersey or wool skirts. The one I like the look of so far is Janome, and reviews say some Singer and Brother machines aren't as good as expected.
I don't want to quilt or embroider on it at present, but might get the accessories if I get the sewing bug. Can anyone recommend a machine, please? I'm thinking round about £150 should get me what I want.
