Get your sewing machines from Portland Sewing.  We carry only well-built, mid-range (no fancy embroidery) machines that can stand the test of time.  All of the machines  are made of ballistic plastic and metal in Japan or Taiwan.  No cheap plastic parts.  No “made in China.”

Looking for a starter machine?  Try a Baby Lock Joy or Zeal.  Want a solid machine with lots of stitches but nothing fancy?  That’s the Janome DC2019.  Reliable, hardworking and great for travel.

Looking for a good all-purpose machine that will last you many years?  Look at the Pfaff Passport 2.0 or Pfaff Passport 3.0.  Both have a walking foot and  a larger flat sewing surface for faster sewing.  Lots of light and a powerful motor.

Think you might want decorative stitches for christening gowns?  You might want to start with a Viking Emerald 118.

Getting serious about apparel sewing?  Then we have the Pfaff Ambition 610 and the Pfaff Ambition 620.  These are the most powerful machines with their metal motors and built-in walking foot — they have a need for speed.
