I bet if you were shopping for sewing machines and had a really tight budget, you must have come across a few Sunbeam sewing machines that were in your price range. Despite not having the fame of well established brands like Singer and Brother, due to their affordable pricing, Sunbeam has built a steady client base.
I have tested a several sewing machines from Sunbeam and honestly, I noticed these sewing machines though not as popular as Brother and Singer still did an amazing job for what they costed. To be honest, they were still nowhere near the Brother or Singer sewing machines. Sunbeam may have other strong points but being a new player in the market, they needs to step up its game to ensure it stands a chance to be on par with the competition put out by more recognized brands.
However not all of Sunbeam sewing machines fall short. There were a couple of Sunbeam sewing machines that really did impress me. Surprisingly, when it came to handheld sewing machines, Sunbeam even outperformed Singer. Secondly, the Sunbeam compact sewing machine also made quite a splash. Most brands like Brother and Singer tend to focus more on computerized and full scaled sewing machines. This may be why the newcomer Sunbeam performed better against more recognized brands when it came to compact smaller models.
