Im not sure if Im even putting this in the right section but, Im buying my first sewing machine and getting ready to take a quilting 101 class.
I was pretty sure I was going to get a Emerald 203 from JoeAnn's but was then shown a Baby Lock Melody. I don't' know how to use a sewing machine yet so it's very hard for me to tell which one is better other than that the Melody has a better warranty and were I would be buying it from offers a store discount for people who buy machines. The Melody is about $500 more than the Emerald and really is a lot more than I had anticipated spending on my first machine, but I want a machine that I won't outgrow or have trouble with.
Thanks in advance!
