I was the one who started the recent thread about higher end machines and are they worth the money. So today, after putting on my new walking foot for my Bernina, I was thinking a lot about the features of a higher end machine. I think I finally "get it" as I don't have a thread cutter, knee lift, etc. and I REALLY WANT ONE! HA!
I did test out the Brother Dreamweaver which for me was around $4k because of trade in and other discounts..now I really wonder if I should BUY the machine?? I have my own LA so harp space isn't an issue, but I would love a machine that can sew costumes, bags, quilts etc. My Bernina is super nice, but old, small and lighting isn't the best. I do have to say that those features of a high end machine, probably really do save you time in the long run..but what do I know??
Anyways, kinda bummed, but then I think, well, I could put in a new driveway! HA! JC
