    there is no such thing as a midarm that is not expensive. :?

    how much are you willing to spend? knowing that will help the others stear in a direction you're willing and able to go. ;-)

    if you live near savannah, GA, i know where you can score the new Janome Horizon for $2,400. 11-1/2" throat space. i don't know his current price for the MC 6500 or MC6600 but he's usually hundreds lower than anywhere else i look when i'm looking.

    i think there are 15" and 16" straight-stitch only machines for much less. this one has all the bells and whistles.

    I think it depends all on what it is you want and do. I love my Juki, because what I like most to do is piece and quilt. I already know I want a longer arm for quilting, but even when I get one, the Juki will stay. I don't use the fancy stitches on my cheapy Brother, and though I have occasional fantasies, I don't think I would use an embroidery machine much. It's just not what satisfies me, though I appreciate the results by others.

    If you think you are going to want and use the fancy stitches, perhaps the Juki is not your machine. But if you want a work horse that straight stitches like nobody's business, I'd pick the Juki any time.

    I have a Juki TL98QE it does have the table thing, but, It works for me and was not real pricey, has a 9-1/2" throat, I do queen and sometimes a little bigger.
