In case you haven't noticed, Michaels is moving into the sewing market space with their new offerings in sewing machines, fabrics, and supplies. They carry models from Singer, Brother, and Janome. A couple of the best reviewed models are on their shelves:
The Singer Heavy Duty which is quite popular and consistently receives high reviews. It's regularly priced at $229.99.
The Brother Cs5055Prw Project Runway Limited Edition Computerized Sewing Machine is a easy to tote mid-range model. (I'm a Project Runway fan - are you?) Great if you have to clear your sewing space to share a table, or bring it to classes and sew-ins. $329.99.
While the Brother CS7000 is boasted as the best bang for the buck and Michaels has the Brother Lb7000 Computerized Sewing & Embroidery Machine that allows you to sew beautiful garments and add embroidery embellishments, creating one of a kind pieces for yourself or others. I'm a fan of these combo machines, although I have the Eversewn Sparrow X!
Michaels also carries sergers - one in each of their featured brands:
- Singer S0100 Serger at $259.99
- Brother St4031Hd Strong & Tough 3/4 Thread Serger With Differential Feed at $599.99
- Janome Mod-Serger Sewing Machine coming in at $499.99
If you don't have a serger yet, any one of these will be ideal! My Singer mechanical serger has been a workhorse! I like the Janome too with it's adjustable foot pressure, snap-on presser feet. It has an adjustable stitch length of 1mm to 4mm, and differential feed.
My quick search for 2021 sewing machine reviews reveals Best Reviews 5 Best Sewing Machines and we see that Singer and Brother sit at the top. No worries, in my opinion, the best sewing machine is the one on your table! These reviews are best used when you are in the market for a new one.
Remember, keeping your machine machine clean and adjusted, as well as using the right fresh needles and threads will keep your machine running well for you. If you are in the market for a machine, it looks like Michaels can be one option for you.
