Editor’s Choice Best Sewing Machines For Kids
Even the best sewing machine manufacturers have found it difficult to come up with a quality machine. While creating this list, I had to discard a lot of good looking toy like machines due to their low quality.
Finally, I came up with the top 5 list. Here it is
Brother XL2600I Sewing Machine
It is more of a beginners machine than a kid’s machine. I included XL2600I in this list because of its quality and ease of use.
You can’t get a better machine for this price. If your kid is a fast learner, this machine will provide enough room for creativity. It has 25 built-in stitches, one-step buttonhole, automatic needle threader, drop-in bobbin, etc.
Even better the thing is that, if your kid gets used to these advanced features in the early stage of sewing, it will be much easier for them to switch over to advanced sewing.
The stitch quality is excellent. The machine is not made of cheap plastic; the build quality is quite good.
This machine can deal with rough handling, take my word for it. Some might consider this machine as little bit too much (in features) for kids, but if you are serious about teaching your kid, Brother XL2600I is a step in the right direction. It has been the best seller for quite some time now.
No major issues.
Brother LS2125i Sewing Machine
This is the second most popular sewing machine for kids. This machine is not as advanced as the previous one in features but is still a favorite sewing machine among kids. It has ten built-in stitches, 4-step buttonhole, and side loading bobbin.
4-step buttonhole and side loading bobbin are not easy to handle, especially for kids. The Even interesting fact is that the current price difference between LS2125i and XL2600I is very less.
So everyone chooses XL2600I over this one. A better pricing would have made it more competitive.
Janome Purple Thunder Sewing Machine
Most beautiful sewing machine on this list. It is available in different colors as well. Kids will love the look of this machine. It is beautiful, affordable and has some quality associated with it.
It has ten built-in stitches, the drop-in bobbin and it is portable. If aesthetics is something that you consider as a top priority, then this is the one for you.
Not designed for heavy fabrics. No sewing light.
Michley LSS – 505 Sewing Machine
If you are really on a tight budget, LSS – 505 would be a great option. This is the least expensive sewing machine on this list. It comes with 8 built-in stitches.
Stitch quality is not as good as you will get on better-ranked machines on this list. Something that you must expect from a low-cost sewing machine.
Janome Sew Mini 2-Stitch Sewing Machine
Janome Sew Mini is a two stitch sewing machine. It has a top loading bobbin for easy bobbin changing. It doesn’t pack a lot of features like Brother XL2600I or Purple Thunder, but still, it is a decent machine. It is affordable as well.
Not good with denim. The machine is loud as well.
