They only drove Caddies and Mercedes. I got a good laugh off of that one.
    60 is the new 40! Caddies? So 1960's. Yuck!

    Red Mercedes convertible two-seater...oooh yea!

    Brother has a great little portable machine available on Amazon and not expensive. It is the 6000i (electronic with like 64 stitches that work beautifully) and comes with a host of accessories like a small work table that attaches to make the bed larger, many feet (many more available and the only one I recommend separately is the 1/4 inch quilting foot with a guide), a walking foot . It weighs only 14 pounds and does a great job. I am a winter Texan and there are at least 10 of these machines in the park. I am also a Sr. who cannot carry the heavier Pfaff that I own and sew on at home.

    According to the Janome web site the Magnolia weighs 18.2 pounds. So it not as light as the Gem (12 pounds) but not as heavy as others.

    I have a Janome 3150 and it only weighs 12 lbs. It is my travel machine and I love it! My 6600 and my Sweet Sixteen stay home and keep each other company while I'm gone!

    If she likes her Janome I would buy the Janome Gem. I know several women who have it and love it!
