While it might feel overwhelming when choosing the right upholstery sewing machine, I encourage you to think about your long-term goals when it comes to upholstery. What fabrics do you commonly use? Do you have dreams of turning this into a business, or plan on producing in higher volumes?
If you find yourself using thicker, heavier upholstery fabrics, or you know that you want to continue upholstering in higher volumes, then an industrial sewing machine that includes all the must-haves listed above will be your best option! If upholstery is more of a fun hobby and the fabrics you commonly use aren’t heavier fabrics like velvet, chenille, and leather, then a domestic sewing machine will probably suffice.
A few brands that I feel are worthy:
Juki, Consew, and Sailrite
