I am considering buying a new machine and have been looking at Viking. In the past I have had a Singer and am currently using a Kenmore, which I have had for about 20 years. I am looking to upgrade and I like the amazing things the new machines can do (especially the threading function). I don’t really want or need embroidery functions, yet it seems that all the machines offer this.
What would you recommend for someone who is an advanced seamstress, who would be doing mostly garment sewing for herself and others? I gravitate towards Viking because we have a dealer here in town and all the other top machines have dealers at least 50 miles away.
