Hi everyone! So I am looking for a new sewing machine!! I'm looking at Janome and Bernina right now and if price didn't matter, I'd totally go for a Bernina. But I have a sad budget of $300 - $400 and I won't be able to get a Bernina with that! Apparently Bernina doesn't list their prices online!, SO does anyone know how much each Bernina model costs? And if you own them, are you satisfied with it and think its worth the money? I'm also considering getting a used Bernina. Do you guys think a used Bernina would still be better than a new Janome? Thanks so much!
PS- I know many people tell me that the money will totally be worth it in the long run, but even though I plan to go into designing and using my sewing machine forever, my parents won't allow me to get a more expensive one. They keep saying I should just upgrade later! So I also have to convince them!! Help! Oh and also, this will be a birthday present for me!
