I am searching for a sewing machine for my MIL. My FIL has given me a budget of around $200 for a good machine for her. She has sewn all her life and is familier but she does a lot of repairing of clothing and heavier material as they all work on a farm. I have spotted the Singer Heavy Duty 4411 at Joann's. Does anyone have this or one similier? I am wondering how it works on thicker material like jeans, corderoy and thicker jackets for minor repairs. Any help is great.
