I've been using my Mothers Sewing machine (ancient singer model from the 1970's). It works but has had a lot of wear and is not really that comfortable to use.
I did a bunch of overtime before going out for surgery, so I was thinking while I am out recovering it might be time to upgrade to something that will be easier/more pleasant to use.
a few people have suggested the Janome 115110 It is available on Overstock.com and seems to be in my price range. I like that it has speed control, sometime when I use a machine at the shop for a lesson I feel like the thing is going to run away on me.
What do you all think? Do you have any other suggestions for other choices in the same range?
