5 Best Sewing Machines: A Valued Gift for Mother's Day

With your birth, your mom started exploring her designer self. I remember I bought my first straight stitch sewing machine when my daughter was born. I wanted to experiment with making comfy cotton dresses for her. 

As she grew a little taller, I wanted to add designing and embroidery to her dresses, and then I bought my Usha Janome Stitch Magic. 

My mom also loved to make dresses for my two sisters and me; today, she's not with us, but I created a list of the best sewing machines that I would have loved to gift my mother as a mother's day gift.

A Mother is a creative person, but with time, commitment and full attention on her kids, she is exhausted from pursuing her interests. If only we kids help her discover her hobbies one more time, life would be so much happier for her again.

How to Choose the Best Sewing Machine for Your Mom - My Opinion

Moms do not want to spend too much money on their hobbies. Hence they hardly invest in their gadgets, needs and value-adding equipment.

A birthday or a mother's day is a special day when you can make her feel valued, and all these sewing machines listed in this post are beginner to medium-level sewing machines that she can use for home use. 

If required, she can even start a small home-based sewing business with her machine. 

She may be hesitant at first, but once she would open the packet, you would notice the thrill on her face and sparkle in her eyes. 

That's MOM. She has dreams too, but she is too busy with you that she hardly shows her desires.

I hope this post brings you closer to your mother, and I would also feel the warmth of my mom wherever she is.

Happy Mother's Day.
