 Hey, I love looking at and doing crafts!
I used to own a sewing machine but it broke due to my roommates dog. I really been missing it! I am a beginner and don't know much but the basics and I always have great ideas of things to do but no sewing machine.....does anyone know where a good place would be to get one from? I want something cheap since I am still new to it but that will last and can do a bit of things.

    Test it out in location make sure the sewing pedal and the power cord are included.
