I found somebody locally who has a singer 514 for sale for $50. I've never had a sewing machine before so I was wondering if this was a reasonable price for this model. It seems to be as most of them I've seen are around $80.
I was also concerned with how well one of these would hold up. I've never sewed before and never owned a sewing machine. Would this be a good machine to get as a first machine and would it handle materials like canvas alright?
Thanks in advance for your help,
