hello from newbie + which machine?
Just discovered this site and wanted to say hi before I rush right in with a question. Hi, I am an low-intermediate quilter who is interested in feedback about sewing machines. I have a White which is maybe six years old and in okay condition, but is a low end model. I have the opportunity to get a nicer machine because of a BIG birthday coming up. In the vacinity of 5-7 hundred dollars, what do you guys think about Janome versus Juki versus Elna? I want an electronic machine which will make free motion quilting easier. I don’t care that much about speed and will rarely use embroidery and/or buttonhole features.
Have been searching the net and am pretty confused. Also, I have found it difficult to see the reviews on the machines.
I’d be really grateful for any input? This will be the last machine purchased for many a year/
