    How long have you had your brother? I had mine 3 yrs when it started acting up. I was thinking of getting another one, but Hubby is afraid I'll have the same trouble. Viking is the only place here that services Sewing machines unless I drive 20 miles to next town. He told me he hates Brothers. :cry:

    I'm leaning more to the Kenmore I posted a pic of here. PLUS, I won't have trouble getting it serviced.

    I have 2 Kenmore's. One I got in 1970 still works great and the other is about 20 or so years old. Made my first quilt on the 2nd one. I nearly broke my arms. Kenmore doesn't make a machine with a deep enough throat to handle that much fabric. I have a Babylock Professional Quilters's Choice. I couldn't be happier with it. It does free motion quilting as well as straight stitching. It did cost a little over a $1000.00 but it is work every penny. The dealers that sell them will train you on how to use it and they service them. Also I have never had one lick of trouble with it. I had read some bad press on the Janome's but hey everybody has their favorite. See if you can try it out in the store before you buy it. Most sewing centers that sell these type of machines will let you. Happy Shopping. Deb

    Deb, I would be interested in reading the bad press on the Janome machines. Could you tell us where that is at? Thanks, Skeat

    I think I saw it on EBay or Amazon com. Don't even remember what I was looking for. I think somebody on quilting site was asking about different machines and I looked it up and I think that was the one. I maybe wrong, it's been a long time since I read it. But you know everybody doesn't always like the same machines. I had hoped Kenmore made a quilting machine but they didn't have one with deep enough throat. I wouldn't trade my 2 for anything. My granddaughter is going to get my first one when she gets old enough. Got to start that girl (my only one) off right. She's 4 1/2 and already knows how to stir up biscuits and pancakes. When she was littler she sat in my lap and we sewed. Deb

    Bev I have that same brother and I can quilt a nice size lap quilt in it with little to no problem, but the extention for the machine my legs seem to want to collaspe alot. For just starting out it's great with the 1/4 seam which is number 37 if you want a right 1/4 seam (I'm thinking right or left handed people) 38 if left. I haven't had a problem with it knock on wood and the troubleshooting section is great.

    The only thing i see wrong with it is if you enjoy quilting now and love it I would bit the bullet and invest in a machine for years to come. Which is what I'm doing and I'll looking at a pfafft machine now, which costs around $5000.00 but at least it's 12 months same as cash.

    Good Luck
