    Monday is my Birthday, 71, and hubby is taking me to buy another Sewing Machine. Two years ago he bought me a Janome DC2010 which I love. The only thing wrong with it so far is that it won't go into the right needle position when I push the button to do so, I have to manually move it with another button, no big deal. I love it and use it daily. He said because I spend so much time in my sewing room that he'd like to get me another machine, but I have no idea what to look for. An embroidery machine? A machine with more stitches (mine has 50). Our budget is a little tight and I don't want to go over 600.00. Does anyone have any suggestions?

    Happy Birthday to you and I hope you have a great day. Enjoy whatever machine you buy. Try them out first and make sure it is something you can really use.

    Happy Birthday!

    New machine? Why not just think about what you'd like to do with a new machine and then test drive them. I like having my little spare so I can sew on one while I embroider on the other. My main machine is a 2 in 1 sewing/embroidery.

    Happy Birthday! Spend the most you can afford to get something perfect! Shop around and test drive them all, that is fun in itself!

    Happy Birthday! And I would test drive as many as I could also to get just the one I wanted. Life's too short to hate your sewing machine :)

    Maybe a Janome 3160, it's pretty loaded. Pfaff has a new line, Ambition, and the 1.0 is $799 here, but maybe lower where you are. I'm a huge Bernina fan, but new ones are more than you want to spend.
