Hi everyone! I'm a brand new quilter and looking to buy a quilting machine.
I think I've narrowed it down to two - the Janome Gem 3 and the Jem 760.
It needs to be portable for classes but I don't want to be limited if I'm actually able to grow my skills a little!
Also, do you have any suggestions on where to buy? My local dealer is quoting me just under $500 for Gem 3 with a quilting table thingy and a few feet, but I've found it online from acesewvac.com for $299.95 with a quilt kit included. Though I'm not sure that comes with the quilting table thingy.
Would you suggest going with local dealer for support? Or online?
Thanks so much for your help!
