Having given up on the local Janome dealer for a Jem (which I thought I wanted), I'm now looking at the Bernettes. Does anyone here have one, and what are your thoughts?
I LOVE my Bernina, but at 25 lbs, it's heavy - not to mention a PITA to take out of table, pack up, and return when I come back from class/retreat/sew-ins.
No need for fancy stitches, buttonholes, etc. The 46 (I think that's the number - black one w/ gold design on it) is available locally for $129.
I waffle... That's a good bit of fabric... I don't "need" more fabric... What to do?
