So I've been thinking about getting a sewing machine and learning how to sew for quite a while now. We have some fabulous books at work on making clothes and other cool stuff and I am desperate to give it a go and maybe make some nice skirts.
The thing is I know nothing about sewing machines so I don't know what I am looking for. I also don't want to spend shitloads of money and some of those babies are over a $1000, although I don't think those are quite aimed at beginners! :) So I'm calling out to anyone who knows anything about sewing and sewing machines for advice on what I should get/look for. Please help me, all suggestions appreciated!
