Not near a john lewis unfortunately, I will have a search and see if I can find any actual shops that I can go to and have a play.

Thank you.

Whereabouts are you, OP? If you're within reach of a John Lewis with a decent haberdashery department (Oxford Circus is great) they will talk you though it really thoroughly, and let you try different models.

I have a Toyota (actually I have two blush). I like them and I think it's a good brand. Have heard good things about Janome too. Bernina machines are top of the range, but can cost £££. For simple sewing you don't need anything computerised, but try and find somewhere that will let you try it out first. You have to feel comfortable with it.

Good luck!

I have around £200 to spend on a sewing machine, I would like to make clothes for my dd and dribble bibs which would be fleece/towel backed. I have been looking but feel a bit lost/overwhelmed.

Any help would be appreciated thanks
