There are 6 main types of sewing machine so read on to find out which type will work best for what you need.


Mechanical Sewing Machines

Mechanical/Standard sewing machines are basic entry level models with limited features and stitches but depending on your intended use they can be just what you need.  They’ll sew most light to medium weight fabrics and because of their construction they are robust.

There are 2 types of bobbin systems used for mechanical models; a front loading system where the bobbin is inserted into a bobbin case and then slotted into an opening at the front of the arm of the machine and a top loading full rotary hook system for an easy jam proof operation.


Computerised Sewing Machines

Suitable for both beginners and more experienced sewists, these are versatile machines with added features to make sewing easier. With more precise control and greater needle penetration power there are often worth the extra cost over a mechanical machine.
