Help! How to choose a new machine?
I am replacing my old Pfaff and want a sturdy machine that can handle quilting as well as sewing, and that is in the under $200 range. I have seen the Brother CD8080 for $120, which says it has metal gears and frame, and the Brother CD6000i for about $152 that comes with several feet but has plastic gears. The CD8080 is computerized, while the CD6000i is electronic -- what does this mean to me, as basic sewer/quilter? Has anyone any feedback on these? I get so excited I am liable to order one without knowing enough about it!
