[Namron] OT - Sewing Machines For Kids

Terick is eleven now, but he started sewing at about seven on my machine.  A
good starter machine for a child is the same as one for an adult.  Of course
there is just something adorable about those little machines put out for
kids.  It is something like the appeal of the easy bake oven. :-) My kids
all cook in my regular kitchen, but I have been tempted by the cuteness of
the easy bake more than once.

The age of the child that will be sewing is a consideration but "child"
sewing machines are not worth it imho. Why spend money on a machine that is
designed to break and not last very long, when you can spend the same 100
dollars or less  and get a used machine that will last.  What I would
recommend is look in the pawn shops, and thrift stores for a "White" brand
or "Singer" brand machine that is basic. It should have a straight stitch
and a zig-zag stitch. Metal construction is important for keeping the
machine from wiggling and walking while it is being used. Test it to see if
it runs in the store, it may need to to be serviced but that is not very
expensive. I learned on my mother's "old" machine which had 2 stitches but
was reliable. If your child takes off with sewing then eventually you can
help them pick a fancier machine but the two is all you need to begin with.
