Usha Janome Marvela 60-Watt Sewing Machine
In the last few years, we witness rapid improvement in the electricity-based sewing machines. There were days when home sewing machines were bulky, so really hard in moving from one place to another. Those machines relied on human power and were not so efficient. But technology has developed a lot in the last decade. Now you can buy a sewing machine that can easily fit inside the cupboard of your room.
The Usha Janome Marvela 60-Watt Sewing Machine is one such example. Even though you have to pay a hefty amount of 8335 rupees to take this Usha product the home, but remember you are getting a bunch of features, too. This amazing machine will make your life a lot easier.

Usha has designed the model Janome Marvela 60 Watt so compact that sewing with it on a bed is as easy as reading magazine just before sleeping.
Easy To Use Sewing Machine
The design language of the body is also user-friendly. Even a newbie can use this machine to sew clothes. You will find single rotating dial on the front, use it to select the stitch style. All the labels with corresponding patterns are printed on the left side of the control dial.
The free arm makes it much easier to sew round and difficult to reach parts of fabrics. You also get an extension table that can be attached to expand the desk area for better accuracy. This extension table features a special compartment for storing accessories like extra bobbins and needles.
On the top of the machine, you can find a handle that enhances the portability aspect of this sewing machine. To make the end user’s reach easier, the tension selection dial finds placement on the front.
While I appreciate the convenience of tension selection dial, the top position of the reverse stitch latch indeed disappoints me. I am not a professional tailor master but have some understanding about must and easy control panel in a sewing machine.
To help the end users even more, Usha has also featured a special bobbin winder on this machine. But be sure to go through the detailed guide before using it.
