I did a very bad thing. I bought Duckie a very cheap kiddie sewing machine as part of her birthday gift. Well, the darn thing doesn't work very well at all and she's very frustrated. She wants to learn to sew. I'm thinking of seeing about taking some classes with her at JoAnn Fabrics and getting a decent, basic (read that as inexpensive and a good value) sewing machine. The problem is: I don't sew much. I can hand sew a button or repair a seam, not much more. The only experience I have with a sewing machine is being completely overwhelmed by the behemoth I tried to learn on in 8th grade home economics. So I need help. I need recommendations on a good starter machine. I'll probably buy it through Walmart. I'd appreciate any feedback on the models listed. I'm looking at price, durability and ease of use. Thank you!!!!
