Sue – a budding sewing machine

Sue is a new sewing machine concept designed by industrial designer James Woods.

There’s a write up about Sue on Threads insider this week and The Perfect Nose also did a write up. To be clear, this sewing machine is a prototype.
James’s proposed sewing machined design makes me want to glue felt onto my sewing machines so that it has a pin cushion feature on it and add a magnet to keep me small scissors handy. I might just do that.

Can Janome please take this concept and make an affordable machine for new generations of sewers please? I’m a Janome owner.

If you think this is a cool sewing machine concept, you should take a look at a foldable sewing machine design concept by Richard Burrow. I’d be happy with either of these to take on a sewing retreat or convention.
