I am looking into purchasing a new sewing machine. I have 2 in mind right now. I intend to use it for quilting, and garment sewing, so it needs to be able to do both. Currently I have a Kenmore 19233 but it does struggle on thick materials. It will sew over them, but you can tell its pushing it :)
Currently I have in mind the Juki Exceed F600 (I can get it for the same price as the 300 because its Christmas in July at the dealers). Or the other Pfaff Expression 2.0, this one is on CL and is a bit cheaper since it is used. But its only 6mos old, and the guy wants to sell it, sadly his wife passed away and he wants to get rid of it.
Any ideas on which would be best. I do like the Pfaff with the IDT which the Juki does not have. Or perhaps you have a suggestion of another machine I should look at. I have a fairly limited budget, I want to stay under $900.00 if I can.
Any suggestions or helpful hints would be appreciated.
