Question NEED HELP!! Sewing machine question!!

I need help!! I am tired of looking at cards with stitching and not being able to duplicate because I do not have a sewing machine!!! I know how to do the faux stitching technique, but sometimes it's just not the same. I want to buy a sewing machine for the sole purpose of stiching on cards and scrapbooking pages. Can anyone suggest a machine that is not too expensive, user friendly, and isn't a bear to set up and put away?? Has anyone used the handheld type that I see advertise? Do they work? Thank you for all suggestions!!!

The problem with a lot of the hand held ones is that they don't sew properly. It's like the stitches don't overlock each other. I've heard that Janome makes a decent little machine. Try looking for one on Joanne.com, they might have one.

I have a cheapo lightweight Singer machine. It's portable, but for me it's still kinda heavy (I'm a woos, what can I say!) so I leave it on a shelf right next to my table. All I have to do is lift it up to the table and plug it in.

There...that was probably absolutely NO help whatsoever....sorry! The one I can tell you I positively HATE is the little Provocraft one that Michaels carries. TOTAL piece of junk!

check walmart or target... or goodwill & thrift stores. Since you only want it for stitching paper, an inexpensive one would work for ya.
