Another plastic framed sewing machine came in for service today. We’re not going to share what brand it is, but you should know that this is the kind of poor quality you can expect if you purchase a really cheap sewing machine. The trouble is, I’ve seen customers bring in plastic framed sewing machines that they paid a lot of money for.
Be assured, Temecula Valley Sewing Center has never, and will never sell sewing machines that do not have metal frames.
The real problem with a plastic framed sewing machine is that it can flex and allow the needle to move forward or rearward, which changes the distance that the needle is from the hook, and in many cases causing the hook to strike the needle and break it. If flexed to an extreme, the needle may even strike the needle plate.
Everybody wants to get a good deal when they’re buying a sewing machine, but sometimes that good deal is a little too good to be true.
