Hi, everyone. I am relatively new to quilting, and actually have three sewing machines, though all were gifts or hand-me-downs. I'm trying to educate myself about the different brands, but find that reading reviews online is only just so helpful. What do you guys know about the different brands? What are the benefits and drawbacks of each? What are the reputations of different companies for quality, service, and longevity of their products? I know that this is a big question, but I don't really know anything at this point, and would like some general info to get me started on my quest to find a company I might one day purchase a machine from myself. I'm not as interested in specific machines, as general knowledge about the various manufacturers and the quality and value of their products. Any help you can provide would be appreciated.
