Silhouette Machine Giveaway!!

I almost don't want to post about it, so that there's more of a chance for me to win! :)

I have been wanting one of these for awhile, but I am getting a sewing machine for my birthday (any suggestions of good ones are appreciated!)...so I'll save up money for one of these another day.

It would be perfect to win one though...and you can do that here! Good luck!

Hi, I follow your sister's blog Sweet Southern Prep and clicked over here for a look. I do quite a bit of sewing, I'm on etsy, shop name bytillie. The owner of several sewing machines, I do have my favorites, depending on what you want to do.

If you want sewing and embroidery, my favorite is Babylok. They are gems.

My one I have owned the longest is my Bernina. I truly love it for complex sewing; over jean seams, zippers, hemming, etc. It's a great basic machine, too, but I seem to only use it for the listed tasks.

The machine I use the most is my Janome. Being a LONG time Bernina owner and true convert to Babylok, I was quite surprised that this little known name machine is my favorite. The Janome has dual feed, a major plus for even sewing. The Pfaff has that too, but is much more costly.

My advice, go to a dealer that has a couple different brands. Sit at the machines and see which one is most intuitive for you. You will only use about 10% of the features, but the one feature you use the most will help determine which machine you get.

Happy Birthday and Happy Sewing
