    This model got great reviews on patternreview.com. I wanted a dealer machine, so I got a Brother HS 2000. But I wouldn't be afraid of the CS 6000i. Amazon has it for $150-175.

    You can look at the reviews on walmart.com - if you buy it there, you get a bonus of an even feed foot, a darning foot and a hard plastic case. It's not available in the stores, only at walmart.com - $179

    I really like it - with 20-some-odd sewing machines, it doesn't get used much any more, but when I want to do a quick buttonhole, that's the machine I pull out.

    It weighs almost nothing, so it's not good for free-motion quilting, but it does handle some pretty heavy sewing chores - hemming pants, for instance. I think the manual for it is online on the Brother site so you can look it over and see how easy it is to use.

    I just checked amazon for it as well. 169 with free shipping...saves 30 dollars plus for more fabric :)

    Thanks for all the help. I will pass it on so she can decide what she wants to do.
