Would recommend a moderate machine, learning for the past year myself on an ancient singer and it is very comforting, most of the time! Wouldn't suggest all the fancy stuff at least til you are comfortable and surely going to continue..

Sewing machines come with a range of features and range from basic to very fancy. If you are a beginner and on a tight budget, it's better to buy a basic machine (you can machines with as little as 6 stitches). Especially if you want the machine for dress making, repairs etc rather than crafting and quilting that require more feature. You can always upgrade it at a later date.

SOURCE: Any advice on how to read a sewing pattern? I really want to learn to sew but am intimidated by these patterns.

Take a look at this link to the Dummies site. They give a breakdown about sewing patterns that should really help you take the next step.

I'm confused. I want a machine that sews normal needs. Including upholstery fabrics. And embroidery stitches


Well, you may have to compromise somewhere. Most household sewing machines have difficulty sewing heavy upholstery fabric. Computerized machines are not built as sturdy and will not hold up as well as mechanical machines when sewing heavy fabrics. Many people sewing upholstery will elect to purchase an older mechanical sewing machine, most made prior to the 1970's, that are all metal. Some of the older mechanical machines will include some fancy design stitches built-in or with removable cams (Pfaff, Kenmore, Necchi, Singer come to mind, but there are many more). You may want to visit a sewing shop and ask about what mechanical machines are available and tell them what you are looking for.

If you want to do fancy embroidery that is the craze right now, you will want a computerized embroidery machine that will use computer programmed designs, usually on memory sticks, etc. However, depending on how and how much you plan to use embroidery, your cost could be anywhere from ~$1500 to $15,000. Oh the other hand, you would not want to use this machine to create upholstery projects.
