sewing, embroidery, quilting machines
I am warming up to the idea of buying a new machine even though I manage to get most from my geriatric Brother XL-4011. I would, however, like to eke the wisdom from this forum: when does a sewing machine become an embroidery or a quilting machine? Common sense dictates that the embroidery machine probably facilitates manipulation of stitch style and structure and the quilting machine must have good needle penetrating power. So, what sewing machine in the present day cost-effectively generates all these functions?
