I have a brother ES-2000 but it broke down after 2 year. Want to purchase a new sewing machine, however I am not looking for anything that is too basic or high end. Any suggestions? Thank you

Depends how much you want to spend and what you want to do with it. Is it a computerized machine you're looking for, or is a good solid mechanical sufficient? Do you want to do embroidery and some other programmed stitches? If so, you'd be looking for a computerized model.

Personally, for general sewing, I would go for a mechanical machine, ie older Bernina, Singer, etc. Something like a Bernina 830 Record could be purchased between $200-400, depending on its condition, included accessories, etc. The Bernina 930 Record is an upscaled model with some added decorative stitches, has the needle up/down feature, and a basting stitch. However, they are fairly popular and well sought out so could go for between $600-1000.

There are some very nice old Kenmore's that are available too. They are hardy machines that can sew through a lot. And Pfaff has some nice older machines.

Sometimes by visiting the local sewing machine dealer (any dealer could have any brand of trade-in machines), they will have trade-in machines that have been thoroughly checked out. You won't be putting out excessive money for a new machine but could still get a good machine that will do what you need. Sometimes they have machines that did not have all the bells and whistles of the newest machines on the market.

You should probably sit down and make a list of what you want on your next machine and then narrow down the list of what is available. Then go test them thoroughly.

What is the difference between a bernina record 930 and just a bernina 930

At the present time, Bernina 930 Record and Bernina 930 are the same machine. Although, technically the name is Bernina 930 Record, referring to the mostly mechanical sewing machine produced in the 1980's. They are very coveted machines and one of the more popular models.

However, Bernina has, in the past few years, begun producing computerized machines and labeling them with the same numbers of older mechanical machines (makes things very confusing), ie Bernina 830 Record vs Bernina 830 computerized model. At this point in time, Bernina has not yet produced a computerized 930.

I have a BabyLock Esante 2 machine and the LCD Screen is no longer working. I am told that it is quite expensive to replace....should I replace it for about $400 which includes labor and a one year...

The best advice I can give to you is find a comparable unit to the one that you have. If the cost of fixing yours is close to half of the cost of purchasing a new unit then I would suggest purchasing a new unit. However, if there is a big difference between the cost of repair and the cost of buing a new one then repair it.

I have looked at many comparable machines to come up with the above advice. However, our machine has some many different things, you would need to compare in order to look at the price of units with the functions that you want as you will be the one using the unit.

Thank you for choosing

Embroiders but not right

If this is happening no matter which design you try the machine needs to be serviced.

You have a computorized machine and repair has to be done by an authorized BL dealer.

1. se enreda el hilo abajo y se rompe el hilo de arriba. 2. muy baja tensión del hilo de abajo. está en el límite de ajuste. Ajusté la bobina y mejoró pero sigue con el problema...

Hola! Espero que puedo ayudarle con su problema--pero, como hace mucho tiempo que no escribo en espanol, por favor, tenga paciencia conmigo.
Muchas veces ese problema de enredar el hilo del abajo resulta de la presencia de pequenos pedacitos de hilo en esa zona. Use un pequeno cepillo para saquar toditos.
Generalmente, no hay que adjustar la tension de las canillas (bobina?). Adjuste al punto que hay un poco de tension cuando jale un poco al hilo.
Casi siempre adjustando la tension de arriba solucionara todo.
Use hilos de diferente colors en la canilla (bobina) y arriba. Tambien, es major usar un aguja nueva. Usando un pedacito de su tela normal, empieza a coser. Cosa unos centimetros, y pare para cequear. Siempre adjuste la tension con la pie prensatelas abajo.
Si se ve el hilo de abajo (el del bobina) en la parte superior de la tela, el hilo superior esta demasiado tenso. Gire el equilibador de tension para disminui el numero.
Si el hilo superior esta demasiado flojo, se ve el hilo del bobina en el lado inferior de la tela. En ese caso, hay que amentar el numero.
En todo caso, hay que hacer las correciones lentamente,
Sequn mi guia, se rompe el hilo de la aguja:
1. No esta enhebrado correctamente 2. La tension del hilo de aguja es excesiva. 3. La aguja esta despuntada o doblada 4. La aguja no esta bien colocada. 5. Los hilos de la aguja y del bobino no estan bien colocados debajo del prensatelas al empezar a coser 6. La tela no se ha extraido hacia atras al terminar la costura 7. El hilo es demasiado grueso o fino para la aguja.

Ojala que eso le ayude y que mi espanol no esta demasiado feo.

Whats the differance between a overlocker and a sewing machine? I am new to sewing and want to know with to purchases, iv no idea where to start or what to buy?

A overlock machine helps you clean finish the seams. You can do many things with a overlock It can cut your sewing time down. The sewing machine is good for many thing too,Mostly the construction of the garment. I have three machines. A indstrialstraight stitch, a home machine and a overlock.Al for different tasks.
