My granddaughter just emailed me from Chicago wanting to know if I could suggest a good machine for her to buy. She does sew, wants to try first quilt and she said " I just am not sure how to differentiate between inexpensive, and cheap." Alas, I am in Pa. and she is in Arlington Heights, Ill. Any suggestions? for brand? a good LQS in Arlington Heights? A good starter machine?
I have had them all. Singer, sewed for years on a Kennmore, Janome, Viking, a couple of Berninas. Each had something I really liked. Oh, how I wish I could take her shopping. Gave the usual advise, try them out, learn how easy/hard they are to use, LQS gives most info but pushes their machine & may be pricey, figure out what you want to do with it, etc.
NOt many of my friends quilt so I am turning to my friends at the QB. Thanks for any help you can give me.
