I currently have a husqvarna Scandinavia 300 embroidery machine. I am fairly new to quilting. I want to buy a new machine as well as a new surger. I got some inheritance money. I have NO idea where to start and I don't want to get taken by a "dealer specific" store. I will be fed a line of bull from all of them trying to sell their machines. SO-O-O, I am asking all of you for advice from this board of quilters who use their machines daily. The wealth of knowledge here is grater than any I will find in any sew machine store. The amount I have to spend is $3,00.00 for both. Doesn't mean I want to spend all of it, but I will if I need to. I just want an awesome EASY embroidery machine and surger.
