Alison at Sewing Machine RatingsHello!  My name is Alison and I started Sewing Machine Ratings about 9 years ago.  Since then I’ve reviewed scores of sewing machines.  I have a background in political science but I actually now work in tech.  Tech was not my intended career path but I am grateful for all the learning opportunities the job has provided.  Sewing has been a hobby for me since I was a young and I love to make my own clothing.  I am hoping that, time permitting, I can become involved in fashion design in the future!
 
In addition to the reviews I write on sewing-machine-ratings.com (wish I’d used a more friendly domain name but hey I came up with this one 9 years ago!) I also gather owner ratings for each machine from around the Internet and average them to produce a score.  In this way you can quickly compare one machine to another and also get a feel for how others feel about their sewing machine.  This is my way of presenting reviews and ratings so they are the most helpful possible to potential buyers.
 
I learned to sew on an old Elna believe it or not.  This was my mom’s machine and it actually only just gave up the ghost about 6 months ago.

The Elna was made in Switzerland and lasted some 50 years or so (not sure exactly when my mom bought it but I know it was in the 1960’s).  Today I sew on a couple of different machines from Janome.

My website should help you find the best machine for your sewing needs. In addition to reviews, I gather owner ratings for each machine and calculate a score. So you can quickly compare one machine to another and also see how others feel about their sewing machine before you buy.
