I have been looking and to many out there. I just need it for pretty much straight stitching. I have 3 other machines but they are to heavy. Any help with light weight, good basics, that doesn't cost an arm and leg. I have dreams that this will enable me to keep sewing in future. Brothers have good rating, singer not so good. Those are the 2 that I have looked at. Hope you can give me some good advice from first hand use. Have a wonderful holiday season.
