Heidi Kenney of My Paper Crane gave us the scoop on the sewing machines she uses.

Heidi says, “This is my Morse industrial which I got off ebay for around $300. It is great for thick fabrics, but has a few things that make it hard to get used to using. The back stitch button is very hard to push in and you have to hold the machine while you do it (if I installed the machine into a sewing unit this wouldnt be a problem) Sometimes the threading seems to tangle easily, but other then that it runs really great. It also did not come with a manual, and I cannot find an exact match online, yet!


Heidi’s EuroPro isn’t strong enough to take the demands and volume of he sewing projects.

Heidi says, “This was my newest machine purchase almost $400 and I am pretty unhappy with it. The back stitching is far too slow, and I guess I am too hard of a sewing for a machine like this, after one month of almost daily sewing and I had a jam. Now the timing is messed up and will have to be fixed by a pro. I say thumbs down to the Europro if your a rough sewer.
