So my DH sends me an email that states that his co worker wants to buy his wife a sewing machine for Xmas. Hers has problems piecing heavier fabrics together for quilts. She makes alot of quilts and just does the putting the blocks together. He wants to get her a new machine around $600 or so. Any suggestions out there from fellow quilters? I have a megaquilter and my friend has a juki but they are around $1000. Thanks!!!!
