    Do you want it to do everything or just embroidery??

      I want it to do everything.

        Have a look at Pattern Review .com . That what i did when i bought my embroidery only machine . Its impartial and you wont get the pressure selling that you get with a dealer.There is alot to think about including your type of computer access and skills and whether you want to download embroidery designs from the internet and so on.I ended up buying two machines for alot less than I would have for one super machine . I ended up buying a Janome 4800 and a Janome 300e . i am very happy with that combination and I sew alot and at a high level.

          Thank you so much for the information, I feel a little relieved.  For some reason I was feeling a little pressured.  I personally love Janome machines, my sewing machine I have had for 15 years is one.  But I will most definitely investigated further by checking out that websit.  Again, I appreciate all your help.

            Also check out your dealer as well.  As an example check out the postings about the lemon Elna. More than just the machine the dealer can really sour your whole experience.  My dealer is fantastic and had the machine out of the box and had me sewing on it before I left the building.  I have heard from some people that they have a brand new sewing machine that is still in the box after 6 months or more because they don't know how to use it.  That is really sad. But the research is the best thing that you can do and at the same time try to find a dealer that also does repair work on site as when or if something happens and it is in need of repairs the down time is less.
