I recently started quilting (well, I have done piecing so far making 6 different quilt tops) and at first wasn't sure I would like it or be any good at it. But, I am really enjoying it and have had some pretty good successes.
I am using a fairly basic model sewing machine (Janome 6019QC) I purchased about 7 years ago for basic sewing. I was considering getting an extension table for my machine but the ladies at the LQS asked if I was sure I was going to be keeping my machine for a few years. I really would like something better.
Can you recommend some mid to upper mid level machines that I should research? The LQS suggested a Baby Lock Elizabeth or Janome 4120 or 2160. I can't find prices on any of these on the net so I have no cost reference. I am thinking around $600 or so. Is that enough?
