I’m a former dressmaker that invested in a New Home 7500 over 10 years ago. For the past 6-7 years I’ve had problems about every sixth months and can’t depend on it to work when I want to sew. I’m in the market for a new one and even though one dealer has recommended a Janome I really don’t want to go back to the same machine that has given me so many problems. Right now I’m torn between having the New Home repaired and trying to work with New Home bobbins (which may have been part of my problem), purchasing a used Pfaff electronic (not sure of the model number), or buying a new Brother NX-400 that has a whole bunch of cool stuff that I know I would use.
I primarily sew clothing (suits, some children’s clothes, some home dec).
What would you do!
