I got a new Janome TXL 607 in January. I had ordered a Jem for the purpose of taking to class, but when it came, it was only 1lb lighter than my basic Janome, so I exchanged it for the 607. I love the auto thread cutter, needle down and adjustable speed.
I then sold my original basic Janome for what I paid for it (bought at 50% off closing down sale).
Now I'm seriously considering buying a Pfaff Quilt Expression 4. I tested one at a recent quilt show and was amazed at how straight the stitches are and loved the fact that the presser foot lifts when you stop (I do a lot of machine appliqué) as well as the built-in walking foot and large harp. I also FMQ smallish quilts.
DH and DD both say I should buy it if I want it, but am I just being greedy?
