When you’re looking to tackle multiple sewing projects from your studio space or the comfort of your own home, a machine that combines both sewing and embroidery can be a great option. There are a variety of advantages to sewing machines of this kind, from taking up less space to simply switching functionalities. Take a closer look at some of the very best sewing machines on offer that also include embroidery capabilities.
First of all it is worthwhile to understand what a sewing & embroidery combination machine entails and why it can be a suitable choice.
As the name suggests, embroidery sewing machines of this kind have the ability to complete regular stitching and are well-placed for a range of stitching and sewing needs. Where they excel is their ability to also undertake decorative embroidery, all from a single machine.
One of the main advantages to selecting a machine that combines both sewing and embroidery is the ability to save space wherever it is that your craft projects come to life; this is particularly useful when the area you use for sewing is limited.
A further benefit to owning a single sewing & embroidery machine is the potential to save money. If sewing & embroidery is of interest to you, it may make sense to combine the cost of two separate machines into one. What’s more, by owning a single sewing & embroidery machine you also only need to repair one machine should it require maintenance at any point.
