    All the newer machines seem to be popular so do your homework and list what you want a machine to do.
    I need a machine with a large throat, needle down, etc.
    I have a cheap work horse machine for backup when my more expensive computerized machine is in for serviceing.
    I have a Viking and it is a great machine, just wish I had bought the more expensive one with embroidery in it.
    Bernina seems to be the winner but is so much more expensive than others just because it has a stitch regulator. Everyone wants that.

    Older models of Singer will hold up many years, but the newer ones are not made to last. Must be made of plastic. Machines that are heavy in weight are not made with plastic and will last longer. I would not trade my old Singer (over 40 years old) nor my Pfaff embroidery machine of 12 years. Serge protecters help, but always unplug machine, iron or like items it storms are expected or if you plan to away from home.
