I am going to purchase a new machine and I was wanting to hear from some owners of a few types of machines. I was thinking about a baby lock ellure’, an elna heirloom edition, a viking iris or a bernina machine. Please help me make a decision. If anyone has one of these machines or is famalir with them let me know. There are not to many dealers in my area and I would have to drive a considerable distance to look at all the different brands of machines. Also if you have other suggestions please let me know. I do mostly heirloom sewing for my daughter and some sewing for around the house.
