How to Choose Sewing Machines in the Philippines – Buying Guide

What are the pointers to keep in mind when purchasing a sewing machine for your home? You need to find something that you can maximize all the features. Let us first look into the pointers as below.

Choose by Type

The sewing machines being sold are widely divided into 3: “Computer”, “Mechanical” and “Electronic”. The most common type is the computerized type, but it will still be better if you know the difference of the 3 types.

Computerized

Computerized
Computerized sewing machines contain microcomputer that can control the needle movement, the stitch length, and design. The sewing machine will do all the work, even beginners can “sew” with ease.
We highly recommend the computerized sewing machines, although they are very expensive compared to the other types. Though when you check websites like Amazon, the computerized sewing machines still come on top of the list. Many people might think they are hard to use, but don’t worry, they are very user-friendly.
For example, most computerized sewing machines have the automatic thread tension function, eliminating the time you need to spend on adjusting the thread at the beginning. Some also have a threading function, or the error notification function, which can be very helpful for beginners.
Although, as mentioned earlier, each additional function will make the price higher. It will be better to choose the functions that you really need, than choose the product will all the functions available.

Electronic

Electronic
The electronic sewing machine is the hybrid of mechanical and computerized sewing machines. You can start and stop it with just one push, and you can also control the sewing speed. This type is the most common household sewing machines, right before the computerized sewing machines took over.
Unlike the computerized sewing machine, you need to do the thread adjustments manually, and there are fewer patterns available with this type. Though it still has enough power to sew thick materials.
The basic use is usually taught in home economics class (depending on the school), so it might not be too difficult for everyone. Though we cannot recommend this type to total beginners.

Mechanical

Mechanical
Mechanical sewing machine is the most old school. The internal motor will power the needle movement. This type of sewing machine does not have the useful functions like the threading function, or the automatic thread tension function. You need to do all of them manually. Also, the sewing power depends on your sewing speed, so if you want to sew thick materials, you would need the ability to sew really fast.
One merit is its price. They are very cheap, you can purchase one with less than ₱3,000. Although we can only recommend it to experts in using sewing machines. For those who are scared to sew quickly, we recommend mechanical or computerized sewing machines.

Choose by Size

The basic sizes for household sewing machines are “Full size” and “Compact size”.
Depending on the brand, there can be products in the middle of full size and compact size, but the usage is mostly the same as the compact size, we can categorize them as just one.

Full Size Sewing Machine

Full Size Sewing Machine
A regular sized sewing machine that weighs around 7 kg to 10 kg. Beginners might think “too heavy” or “too big” but full-size sewing machines are equipped with complete sewing machine functions, making it the best option for beginners.
The best part is it has the power to sew thick layered materials. Its internal parts are all metal and very durable, some even come with a long-term warranty.
The disadvantage is its weight, size, and price. A full-size computerized sewing machine will surely be expensive. It might not be ideal for those who are planning to only bring them out when you need to use it, as it can be very heavy to store or bring out frequently.

Compact Size Sewing Machine

Compact Size Sewing Machine
The compact size is very popular among beginners. It is very lightweight compared to full size, mostly around 5 kg. They are more affordable too.
Although they are compact, the functions are almost the same as the full size. The difference, however, is their power. Most products claim that it “can sew thick materials”, but it is not that easy with compact size sewing machines, and can skip a stitch or the needle might not go through if you’re not yet used to them.
The materials used for internal parts may become plastic for compact size sewing machines, so their durability is lower. The warranty is shorter as well, compared to full-size sewing machines.

Choose by Function

Those that can only do a straight stitch, those with a lot of stitch choices, those that can quilt… There are a lot of functions to choose from.
Depending on the product, some functions are only available if you purchase an accessory. Be careful of this too, as you might mistakenly think the product already has the function.

Computer Support Function

Computer Support Function
Some have the computer guidance function for those who have no idea on how to use sewing machines. Some have the error display function. All these functions make it easier for beginners to use sewing machines.
We highly recommend beginners to rely on these functions for smooth usage of your sewing machine.

Embroidery / Quilting Function

Embroidery / Quilting Function
Some people may be thinking “all computerized sewing machines can embroider or quilt”, but the most common computerized sewing machines don’t.
If embroidery or quilting is your priority, you might need to purchase a different machine just for embroidery or quilting, or double check if the embroidery function is indicated before you purchase a sewing machine. There are also very few embroidery machines/accessories available, so it is more advisable to look for a sewing machine with embroidery function.

Foot Controller

Foot Controller
If you have a table for your sewing machine, then we highly recommend using a foot controller. It can be a lot easier for beginners, than using your hands to push the start button. You can use both your hands to keep your stitches straight.
Some products come with a foot controller, but there are also products where you need to buy the foot controller separately. Be sure to check them out before purchase.
