Baby Lock Jane
sewrose on the Baby Lock Jane Sewing Machine
sewrose says, "I'd considered buying an industrial machine. Then I considered the space I'd need for it, the noise it would make, and the service it would need on site. Then I found Jane."
"I like it for being a sort of an answer to the home sewer's desire for industrial machine-like characteristics. It's so powerful, so fast, and has so much torque. You can change the presser foot pressure, and lower and raise the feed dogs. It only makes a straight stitch, but it's an awesome straight stitch. It's got so much room to the right and left of the throat plate. I love it."

ditchstitcher on the Brother 2340CV Coverstitch
ditchstitcher says, "I own a small alterations business and have always wanted a coverstitch machine. When I started my business it was just too expensive to find a serger that had coverhem capabilities. So I waited. Using a twin needle was sufficient. In the last couple of years I have seen such an increase in softer rayon knits in skirts and tops and maxi dresses and the twin needle just wasn't working as well as it had. I decided it was time to make the leap."
"I couldn't get it to form a stitch at first, but, within an hour I was hemming customers garments and changing threads. Pulled a few of the scraps out of the trash that had been such a headache with the twin needle a few days earlier and they zipped right through! Beautiful!! Love this machine!"
