I just found this forum and I'm impressed by the amount of creative folks out there who ask/answer questions in these forums. I hope you can help me pick a sewing machine.
I currently have a Singer Curvy, a very basic entry level sewing machine. I enjoy making cloth dolls but my Singer does not have a small stitch. The smallest stitch is 10-11 stitches per inch.
I'd like to buy a new sewing machine, one that will allow me to grow and continue to learn. The main requirement is a small stitch. For my cloth dolls I need about 20 stitches per inch.
I'm considering a Husquarna 835 or a Bernina 350. Which of those two would you recommend and why?
Any other machines I should consider? I'd like to stay under $ 1500, if possible.
I don't have any friends who sew and I am learning a lot on my own, reading, asking, etc... so your advice will be extremely helpful!
