If you say sew

Stupid question but one I am much confused by at present moment no.498:

 

Can anyone recommend a sewing machine that isnt too expensive?

If anyone has a good one that they dont want anymore? Maybe? I buy with real pounds. No funny business.

Actually, a recommendation is all I need right now. It will mainly be for patchworking, because i have a sudden need to patchwork. But also for some repairs and possibly a little appliqué.
