My Jones sewing machine was a 21st birthday gift & I'll be 66 this month. There seems to be several issues with tension, I can't get a straight stitch so have to use the zig zag foot & threading the needle is getting difficult. I think the time has come for a new one DH wants to get it for my birthday
I'm looking at possibly the Janome J3-24, the Brother XR37NT, or the Computerised Brother Innov-IS15.
Although I made my wedding dress 46 years ago I probably won't be doing such big jobs again. I'm not interested in quilting or anything particularly fancy, just a reliable machine.
With the lockdown, I can't go to a shop to try any & the nearest shop with any would be 60 miles away in Aberdeen or Edinburgh.
As we'll ll probably just have to order online on recommendation, has anyone got any advice on those or preferred models, please
