I have a John Lewis one for £100. It does everything I want and is really easy to use. I don't use it much unfortunately, but I really like it. In bigger JL stores the staff will help you choose one and show you how to thread it etc.

Lidl one is usually seen as value for money.
I am pleased with my Janome which cost under £100. Standard brand so plenty spares & accessories. I googled for one that claimed it was "easy to use".

I'm by no means good at sewing but I like to try and make what I can, I can do baby blankets, bibs, simple bags, cushion covers and the like, basic and simple things in other words. smile

I have had 2 very cheap little machines the £20 type, I would like to have something that is a bit more permanent and sturdy but still simple enough to use.

Nothing majorly expensive though as sadly I don't get nearly as much time as I'd like to get crafty and like I said I'm really not up to anything that requires any skill grin

Any recommendations would be great. smile
