I think I would keep it and give it a little more time. I have the Horizon, the 3160 QDC (travel machine), and the Brother PQ-1500s. Love them all for different reasons. If it's in good working order, I'd want to learn to bond with it. I miss my built in walking foot that the Pfaff has. Mine fell off a UPS truck and I still miss that thing. I went Janome when I compared the two side by side, but still miss that built in walking foot.
