My daughter is getting married this summer, so I wanted to get her a personal item for Christmas, because she will receive a lot of household items and appliances. She has experience sewing and always wants me to sew for her, and uses the statement "Well, if I had my own sewning machine, I could sew it my self." I am a Bernina fan for life, but I am not going to spend a lot of money for a machine, that I am not sure she will use very much, as she is busy and I am not sure of her real interest level. So, to shorten the story, We purchased the Brother sewing machine that Costco has in their store. Does anyone know anything about this machine? I am a firm believer of "You get what you pay for", but I also know that Costco has good products and stands behind what they sell. I appreciate your imput.
