Usha Janome Wonder Stitch Plus and Stitch Magic Comparison Review

Compare Review Stitching Machine

Usha Janome Wonder Stitch Plus and Stitch Magic are two beginners to medium level sewing machines. Both the machines are good for your clothes alterations instantly, but these machines are excellent at turning simple fabric into a designer dress.

Before I tell you the main difference between Wonder Stitch Plus and Stitch Magic, I tell you my experience with an automatic sewing machine to clear some of your fears.

I bought my Stitch Magic as a complete beginner. I did not know much about an automatic sewing machine a decade ago. Moreover, I was in awe of white plastic sewing machines.

At the same time, I was afraid these zig-zag machines would be as durable and trustworthy as my manual and industrial sewing machines. 

Questions To Ask When Buying A New Sewing Machine in 2022

My purpose in sharing this piece of information with you is that I was always an ardent sewing lover, and I understand a sewing machine is not a cellphone you change every year. It is more than a companion.

A sewing machine costs less than your cellphone, but you build a bond with it when you create beautiful things using it. It is a long time investment. Hence you must take due care while selecting the best sewing machine for your need.

Let's find out which sewing machine is best among the two.
