My neighbor bought one new for her mother at Christmas. She pieced one quilt with it and then she died. They paid $400 or more for it new and wants $200 for it now. I'm planning on buying it but Don't know if they are difficult to use or anything about them that I should know. I am using a Janome and a Brother CE4000 Computer machine which might be for sale soon. I know it's a good price and have hear they are great machines. Any info might help me decide for sure.
