3.2 million US householders will have a mini sewing device by 2020, according to a new study by Consumer Reports.
The research, which is based on a survey of 1,400 people in 20 cities, says that a typical mini sewing system will last about two years, while a regular sewing machine can be used for 10 years.
The average US household spends about $3,000 a year on the machines, which are often used for household chores and as home sewing machines.
In the study, Consumer Reports said that a new mini-saver is going to be sold to consumers by the end of the year, with prices starting at $29.99.
The study also showed that more people will be buying a new sewing machine as they look for ways to save money.
The average cost for a mini-machine has dropped from $2,995 to $1,200 since 2015, the study found.
“We think that consumers are going to see a lot more interest in these new products,” said Laura Bierman, president of Consumer Reports Consumer Marketing.
The study says that mini-screws, which attach to a regular machine, are a more convenient way to use sewing machines and that more than two-thirds of respondents said they would be more likely to buy a machine if they could make it work in their home.
