An industrial sewing machine provides you with efficiency once you have mastered the basic domestic sewing machine. The robust external motors provide you with the capability workhorse in manufacturing. Unlike the local machine, an industrial machine is durable and can run for an entire working day with recurrent high-speed usage. At Me.reka Makerspace, we provide you with that experience once you feel comfortable and ready to level up. The machine that we will be offering belongs to a well-known, and reliable brand from Japan named JUKI. The model that we have in our workshop is a high-performance single needle, constructed of aluminum die-casting to ensure industrial-quality sewing.
A portable sewing machine provides sewing enthusiasts with the fundamentals and flexibility on sewing. Keeping versatility in mind and catering to DIY projects such as upholstery, dresses, curtains, etc. Machines like this can perform a variety of stitch types. However, adaptability when it comes to accommodating fabric types won’t be so forgiving. At Me.reka we provide you with the experience of learning the fundamentals on sewing and fulfilling some of your DIY project wishlists. The machines offered are from a historic brand in sewing name Singer. The Singer model 1306 is a compact and sturdy machine ideal for beginners.
An overlocking machine also known as a serger is specially design to join the edges of one or two pieces of fabric with an overcast or an overlock stitch and cut off the seam allowance as it sews. The overcast creates locks around the seam to ensure that fabric edges won’t unravel with a professional-looking finish.
