Lettering sewing machine

Postby grant » March 20th, 2017, 7:27 am


I'm hoping for some advice on purchasing a sewing machine for some simple block lettering. I'm not looking for anything super expensive or suited for embroidery.

Hooking up to a computer for convenience might be useful but not necessary.

Any thoughts or advice on machines please let me know.

Machine embroidery is machine embroidery. It doesn't matter if the letters are block style or an elaborate cursive font. You may want to look into an embroidery only machine. There really aren't home machines that do font specific tasks only.

And the lettering on my fancy machine isn't nearly as nice or readable as what I can get from my embroidery-only machine!! In fact, I rarely use that feature since I got an embroidery machine. I will say this. I have a fancy-schmancy sewing (only) machine that does pretty much everything and an stand-alone emboidery machine, and they both still cost $$$$ less than if I had paid for a sewing/embroidery combination machine. I bought mine years ago, and it only has 4"x4" and 5"x7" hoops. Nowadays, you can get larger hoops as well.

There is a brother machine in Costco that does lettering. I think there might be two fonts. Nothing fancy, just lettering stitched out. It is also a regular sewing machine.
