I'm starting the process of upgrading to a new sewing machine and could use help and suggestions. I have a budget (so a mid range machine) and a few features I would like, but really don't know where to start.
I'm not a professional by any means (intermediate), but love to quilt and could use a reliable, well built, easy to use machine. Couple of features I would like:
* A good open yolk space (so I don't strain to see around the front and back of my projects)
* Variety of stitch patterns
* Variable speed
* Variety of feet for machine quilting
* Stitch regulator
* Needle up/down
What else would be good to have on a machine? Thanks in advance!
