A couple of years ago we coordinated  Sewing Machine Month, a full 30 days of info about sewing machines on our blog and elsewhere.  As part of that series we asked our readers to review their sewing machines on their own blogs, then tell us where to find their review. We put them all together into one Sewing Machine Master List. The idea for the reviews was prompted by a reader who found herself overwhelmed with the process of online research for a new machine, when what she really wanted were some honest reviews. Since we published the list of the reviews the market has gained new models and we’ve gained new readers, so it’s time for new Sewing Machine Reviews, from you!

Tell us about your sewing machine! Answer any/all of these questions on your blog, then upload your link below. Scroll down to the appropriate section to add your link; we have sections for Baby Lock, Bernina, Brother, Elna, Husqvarna Viking, Janome, Juki, Kenmore, Pfaff and Singer, with a place for “Other” machines at the bottom. When you upload the link be sure to use the sewing machine brand and model as your NAME (i.e. Janome Horizon MC8900). You don’t have to have a brand-new machine to answer the questions by any means! We want to learn about your machine, whether it’s been sewing strong longer than you’ve been alive or whether you just opened the box. Even if you participated last time and have the same machine, please participate again! Your opinions could really help someone make the agonizing decision of which machine to buy (or definitely not buy!).
