New Machine Advice–Bernina or Brother??
Hi all. You’re all very knowledgeable about everything here and hope that someone or many of you can give me your advice about machines. I’m a newbie and visited the store that I’ll take lessons from and was kind of swayed into putting money down on a Brother NX-400. Looked nice and and the controls seemed fairly easy to use. The price was decent also (679 on sale) for all it could do but I was thinking after I left that it may be a heavy machine for me. I have carpal tunnel syndrome and really shouldn’t carry a heavy machine around and I may want to take it with me to classes. On the Bernina site I saw the 145S which seemed to me to have a lot of basic functions along with a few “extras” that I would like. I also seems smaller so I’m thinking that it may be lighter too. Anybody out there know? Also, is the Bernina a better-made machine which should last a longer time? Thanks in advance;-)
