Introduction and Buying a New Machine
I’m new to Gatherings and am a new quilter. I have been doing other crafts (including crochet and soapmaking) for years and am excited to get going with quilting. I have decided to buy my own machine and have found a dealer in the neighborhood who offers a good service package and has other good supplies in the store and seems very helpful in terms of providing me with explanations of the machine. She is recommending the Janome 423s as a good strong machine for a first time owner and for quilting. Does anyone have any feedback on this machine? I’ve only been able to find descriptions and not review on the ‘net. Also, I would like some tips on how to “test drive” the machine. What should I do in the store to try it out?
