My son is looking for a sewing machine to hem jeans and sew other heavy duty materials. Does anyone have a recommendation?
This Board is so awesome regarding anything and everything, thought I would ask. Thank you.

    I was recently given a very old Pfaff 30. It is fab for stuff like that. Not sure how easy they are to get hold of but well worth looking out for.

    I have a Pfaff 1209, bought it because it does have a heavy duty motor to do upholstery fabrics and jeans.... At the time I bought it I was sewing alot of faux/fake fur stuffed animals so needed a machine that could handle that type of fabric. When looking for a new or used machine you need to ask if it has a heavy duty motor, which is what you will need to do those types of fabrics.
