Can someone give me a guide to the price you would pay for a reasonable quilting sewing machine. I have a Janome DC2101 (I think from memory) and am thinking of upgrading to a machine with a larger throat area and also which has a few more stitches, automatic thread cutter, an inbuilt walking foot, if possible and a few extra bibs and bobs. I have been quoted between $1799 - up to $8,000. I definitely can't afford the latter but would like a more heavy duty machine than I have presently, but not break the bank!! I am happy to purchase from the USA and pay the required postage if needed. I would appreciate any guidance you can give.
