Inspiring Quilters, Stitch by Stitch
Hi, I have some advice for you. I sew a lot and the best machine out there is the Janome .I have a Janome 6500P and wouldn't trade it for anything. I had a bernina 180 E. I still have it but I don't use it.
My Janome used to be called New Home made by Janome for Sears. Now they are just Janome. They are quiet, dependable and a good friend. I also have the little Jem to take to classes as the 6500 is heavy. Try the Janome before you buy.It is very important.
I even quilt on mine as it has a 9" base for more room for large projects.
Hope this helps.
