Sewing Machine: Where to buy?

Update: Hey guys! Thanks for dropping by and leaving your sweet comments. This entry was posted quite  long ago so I guess there will be some new updates. Will keep you guys posted!

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Are you looking for a sewing machine? If you are located in KL, Malaysia and looking for a sewing machine but has no clue where to get it, this post might be helpful. I was having the same problem finding an affordable sewing machine months ago. After days of searching through the internet, I still couldn't find any useful information. Most of the websites or forums which I came across are not up to date. Hence, the information provided is pretty doubtful.


There are a few common brands available in the market. The most well known of course is Singer, follow by others such as Brother, Toshiba and Global.


Finding a sewing machine which suits you is a big headache. As a beginner I believe everyone is clueless on what are they looking for. The only thing which I can differentiate between the models are the number of patterns. The more patterns or functions a machine has, the higher is the price. Well as for me, since I'm a greenhorn I opt for something simple and basic. Ease to use, basic functionalities, affordable price, not too bulky are my only requirements. I'm currently using Brother LS-2125, which cost me around RM529.


You may want to check out Singer outlets for their range of sewing machines. As far as I know, the cheapest is around RM750 with some basic functions. Good enough for beginners. The price obviously is more expensive compare to other brands since their sewing machines are very promising and could be better in quality. Check out their websites (http://www.singer.com.my/) for the list of outlets. However, do bare in mind that some of the outlets may not be available anymore. So it is always the best to call up. If you are around Subang or Sunway area, check out Singer at Carrefour Subang. They have plenty of models and they even sell second hand machines. If I'm not mistaken a second hand machine is priced at RM800. Singer do provide monthly installment scheme with 0% interest. According to the sales person, they do provide training once you've purchased the sewing machine. You may want to enquire that too.


The next brand is Brother (http://www.brother.com.my/). If you are on a tight budget like I did, you may consider Brother sewing machine. It is available at Carrefour, Midvalley (where I got mine). Based on their website it is available at Carrefour, Subang as well but I couldn't find any after so many visits. They have another outlet at Jaya 33, Petaling Jaya but I'm not too sure of the availability. The last time I called up they said that outlet is their service center. Do check out other Carrefour branches like Wangsa Maju or Ampang. There are two models displayed at Carrefour Midvalley, LS-2125 and BM-2600. The price is around RM500 and RM700 respectively with 1 year warranty from Brother itself. You are allow to extend the warranty to another 2 years by adding RM30 but the 2 years warranty will be under Carrefour. I was so glad to find out that Carrefour is giving out RM10 cash voucher for every RM100 purchase, if you make the payment using CIMB card. So in total I received RM50 cash voucher! At the end the machine only cost me RM500 :)
Besides Brother, Carrefour Midvalley also selling Global (http://www.globalsewing.com/) sewing machine. There is one model being displayed but I couldn't recall the model number. The price is around RM700. It is also available at Tesco. Check out both stores to compare the prices. Some forumers said that Courts Mammoth has Toshiba sewing machine. Another options for people who is looking for installment scheme.


Good luck in finding your sewing machine!

I think this might be useful for those who are sourcing for a Brother Sewing Machine because too many ask me what is the different between LS-2125, LS-2160, BM-2600 & XL-2630.

And here's your answer:
LS-2125 is the same as LS-2160 (their only difference are the color, of course and the model code.) Most of you who visit the major shopping complex will come across LS-2125 but not LS-2160, because LS-2125 is the "hypermarket model". In other word, you can only get it in the hypermarket. As compare to that, LS-2160 was meant for Brother dealers.

Same goes to BM-2600 for hypermarket & XL-2160 for dealer.

The last time I checked, I saw Carrefour Bukit Rimau and Tesco Puchong did have a few models like Global and Brothers. But I will have to reconfirm again since I didn't check on it for some time. I did take some photos of a few Global models on my last visit but I'm not sure if they are still available. If you guys can wait, I will update again on my next visit to these 2 supermarkets? Otherwise, you may drop by and try your luck if the you are staying nearby.

Pandora is built around algorithms that will customize the

There are quite a few to choose from such as the Roberts stream 83i
or the Tangent Quattro which are both good examples of internet radios.
While traditional radio broadcasters have often used the Internet to
advertise or promote their shows, Internet radio technology has actually revolutionized the concept and
simple programming requirements have taken it to the extent where individuals, organizations or anyone for that matter, can easily host their own Internet talk radio station from the comfort of
their home.
