Best Sewing Machine 2022

There are many sewing machines on the market today, and we know it can be overwhelming to consider all of them. There’s a lot to take into account when picking out the best sewing machine - how many different stitches, machine and workspace size, how big the screen is, touch screen or not, and so much more.

To make things easier for you, we’ve done the hard work and considered big brands such as Janome, Brother, Singer, Bernina, and compiled a list of what we deem to be the best sewing machines of 2022. Let’s take a look!

If you're limited for space, this machine would be an amazing additon to your home.
