Industrial Singer for newbie?

17 years ago

Hi all

I am keen to get sewing so I can do interior decorating projects, ie curtains, recovering furniture, etc as well as make the odd bit of clothing. I haven't sewed much. When I was a teengager I used my mother's vintage electric singer machine.

Now I am tempted by a machine on an online auction but don't know if I can handle it. It is a vintage electric singer machine described as fully working in very good condition and of "industrial quality". It comes with original stiching patterns and extra attachments and what looks like an electic foot pedal.

What exactly does "industrial quality" mean? I imagine it will be useful for heavy upholstery fabric but may be too hard for me to use.

Would love any advice, thanks, Elly
