I only sew on cards anyway, so I'm not worried about the needles. I have the Singer Simple machine from Walmart for $89 and it has an automatic threader. I don't use it enough lately so I have to get the DVD out again and watch how to use it. Mom has an auto threader and loves it. I know I liked it when I first used it, but the last time I tried, I forgot how it worked.
I have the Sew Mini and it's great. Thanks to Gina for her WONDERFUL tutorials!
I am curious about the Brother sewing machine that has automatic needle threading. I think it's the I6000C?
Also, I've seen a sewing machine (again, I think it's by Brother) that does embroidery and sewing! Granted, I probably won't embroider anytime soon, but knowing that I can would be nice.
I have a Brother Sewing/Embroidery machine. I have the 270D. I just love it. I am looking for a different sewing machine that just sews. When doing embroidery some of the designs can take hours. I am waiting on the embroidery function so I can sew again. I know it's probably quite silly but I work with a lot of different materials, techniques and designs when sewing so I am always worried I will whack out the computer on my embroidery machine. I have heard a few stories of that happening. I was told by professional sewist's to keep my sewing machine and embroidery machine separate. I am looking into buying a Janome or another Brother machine.
Automatic Needle threading is the greatest thing ever. I love it. My DH has a Brother sewing machine for quilting and he loves the Automatic Needle threading system. He's jealous my embroidery machine actually can cut the thread. We both love not using the pressure foot on our machines.
I have a Janome Sew Mini I use to make my doll clothes, sew on cardstock and other small mending projects.
