Which Sewing Machine?
I am thinking seriously about buying another sewing machine for quilting. Based on the advice of friends and fellow bloggers, I don't think a long arm is for me, but I do want to upgrade to a larger opening for quilting (at least 9"). I have been to all the local sewing machine shops, and no one has any Janome 6500s left (was hoping to get a bargain!). I am still thinking this over. For me this is a very significant amount of money to spend, especially since it is for me alone and no one else in the family will benefit. Does anyone have any suggestions? I don't have the budget to pay the price of a small used car for my sewing machine...$2,000 or less is what I am aiming for. I could buy the new Janome 6600 for around $1800. Is this what I want? Suggestions welcome.
