Sewing Machines for $150-200

This is Part 3 of the Official WhatTheCraft Sewing Machine Recommendation List!

How did I choose the machines on this list? Online consumer ratings, my favorite shopping buddy.

These machines were selected because they not only had good ratings…  they also had a lot of ratings and were at least decently rated at more than one of the review sites. A 5 star machine with 1 reviewer could be a fluke. Likewise, a 5 star machine on Amazon that has 2 stars on Ebay reviews is not a machine I’d gamble on.

*I should mention that unless otherwise noted, I have not personally tested these machines.*

The recommendations have been broken up into several groups by price.

    The Brother CS6000i is a so well received by reviewers on Amazon. For the price, it is obviously a heckuva bargain. I think this one looks like a tempting mother’s day present.
    Thanks for sharing the reviews.
