I'm new at quilting and am in the market for a machine. This is going to be my first sewing machine and have a budget of $200-300. I was looking into Brother and Singer machines, but have heard that for a little more money, I could get a lower end Janome that would last longer. Does anyone have these machines? If so, what are your thoughts on them? Pros and cons? Advantages of getting one over the other? Any input would be appreciated! Thank you!
