I'm looking at the following machines
Bernina, BabyLock and Viking.
I want to do more embroidery so starting to look. Would love to hear what machine you have and what you love/hate about it.
I own a Janome 6600 that I will keep and a Bernina 180E that I will trade in or sell. So the new machine will replace the Bernina.
Edited to add:
My goal in getting the new machine is to use more embroidery and make it easier. My Bernina was top of the line when purchased, but I know they can do so much more now.
I'm going to be sewing for 2 darling little grand daughters and their dolls, and would love to do towels and home dec. Of course, I'm a quilter so I will be making labels and would like to do some "quilting" on there. Hoop size is important - small to large is needed. Possibly the border options.
Looking forward to your suggestions. By the way, I'm seriously looking at the original Ellismo. My dealer has a floor model at a reduced price that he is holding for me.
