What is the difference between Mechanical, Computerised & Electronic sewing machines?
There are 3 styles of machines: mechanical, computerized and electronic.
The best way to describe mechanical sewing machines is to say they have ‘all the basics’. Knobs and dials are used to change the settings on the machine which make for a bit less precise stitch than its electronic and computerized counterparts. ‘Higher end’ mechanical machines may have several decorative or utility stitches. Mechanical sewing machines are often the most affordable.
Computerized machines will be the most expensive style. These machines not only do a variety of utility and decorative stitches, but have the capability of creating embroidery designs. Some machines will only accept cards with designs loaded on them, while others can be linked directly to your computer.
Electronic sewing machines are a ‘hybrid’ between mechanical and computerized other styles. These machines offer a larger variety of utility and decorative stitches, several styles of buttonholes, and very possibly an alphabet, but will not allow you to do embroidery. Electronic machines will typically have an LCD screen that allows you to make adjustment to your stitches – giving more precision in your sewing.
