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
    Hun, I can't work as I'm disabled (from brain tumor) so I can't afford big fancy machines. Hubby is getting me (if I still want) a Kenmore next yr with taxes. The Brother will do fine til then. I sewed for yrs on my other one with no problems

    Bev- it's like Christmas!!! You'll be sewing up a storm. Nothing like something new to get the creative juices flowing. Enjoy!!!

    Can't wait to see how you like it!

    (I got my Juki a few months ago and I see such a difference in the quality of my sewing- or is it I do more sewing so my quality is getting better with experience...hmmmm.....)

    I have a Brother as explained in another post, but after having it serviced it got worse. I'm buying another just like it. I just will NEVER have it serviced there again

    I have the Pfaff Expression 2038 and I love it to pieces. It has several decorative stitches, including alphabet. But, the feature that I like most about this machine is the integrated dual feed foot. It is an attached walking foot that can be engaged with the touch of a finger. It can be used with many of the accessory feet. Although the bed is just standard size, I also purchased the Fab-U-motion table with stitch regulator which makes machine quilting ever so much easier. No more "wrestling" with moving all the bulkiy quilt sandwich, since the moving table moves the fabric with just your fingertips. now, it is a slight investment to buy machine and the table, but my Pfaff dealer has specials all the time. In my opinion, it was worth every penny and it will be a long, LONG time before I'm ready to upgrade. Nita :)
