I'd like everyone's input. I need to buy a new sewing machine. Right now I have a Singer I bought at Wal-Mart for $89. It's not cutting it for quilting. I'm wanting to machine quilt my own stuff. I have a queen size quilt that I tried to put through it. Bad idea, it was way too thick to fit through the machine.
I'd like something fairly simple to use, that I can machine quilt with up to a king size. I figure on spending around $500. What do you think? What brand is best? Does it matter? Singer? Janome? Is one supposed to be better than the other? Any help would be appreciated, thanks.
