10 Highly Reliable Home Sewing Machines

10 Highly Reliable Home Sewing Machines


There is nothing like a 'Perfect Product' or a 'Perfect Company' in the corporate world. All sewing machine manufacturers do make mistakes. They all have seen some of their sewing machines go down without making a name. Majority of sewing machines released each year don't make it to the top. Only a few models have the quality and features to do well in the highly competitive sewing machine market and those few models make up the bulk of the sales for their respective manufacturers. Those machines that tasted success will make up for the loss incurred for the development of the sewing machines that failed to make a mark. This is how things work in the sewing machine industry.

All through my 15 years of sewing experience, one thing I have noticed is that there are certain home sewing machines that are in a different league when compared to its competitors. Certain sewing machines stand out of the crowd due to their flawless operation and awesome stitch quality. You can handpick them quite easily, provided you have a decent experience with the sewing machine market. Such machines are the pride of their respective manufacturers. Here I have handpicked 10 such home sewing machines that their manufacturers take pride in manufacturing them.

Below is the list of 10 Highly Reliable Home Sewing Machines that you can get in US.
