Re: Starter Machines and Beginning Sewers

I'm about to open a sewing studio and give classes for tweens up to adult. As a former costume designer & current college adjunct in fashion, I've worked on a lot of different machines. My old Bernina, record 830 is tops. But I can't afford Berninas for my school. What do any of you who've run classes suggest for a very durable, yet inexpensive machine? I've been offered to rep for Brother. What is the general opinion of their models? Someone else in town sells Janome, so I'd rather not be in competition with them. Thanks!
