    I am an avid sewer, quilter and machine embroiderer. Does anyone known of a good machine that i can get that will do all three of these functions. I think mine is going to go to machine heaven and i would like to be prepared. I have been looking at thisboard for a few months now and have learned so much. thank you to all you ladies that help everyone and offer such wonderful ideas.

    make a list of what you want in a machine. Grab your check book or credit card and head for the nearest sewing machine shop.

    Yep, agree with this. Figure out what you expect in a machine and do lots of research. I love my Vikings, but they are pricey. If you want all the bells and whistles, computer compatible, large throat, large embroidery capability, lots of fancy sewing stitches, check out the Diamond, but be prepared to pay. It is wonderful; I also have the Topaz with many of the same features for a lot less. As I say do lots of research.

    My Pfaff has all of those features. I was able to get one that was a demo machine and was being discontinued, so got a pretty good deal. If you don't have to worry about price, it should not be hard to find a good machine that does all of those things. Like the others said, do your homework shop around, try them out.

    A Janome 11000 will do all that and more plus the upgrades are downloaded everytime they make a change.
