If the 201 and the 15 are so similar in quality as I have read online, why does the 201 have better name recognition and command higher prices (although the 15 looks like prices are rising too)? I know originally they were marketed to different crowds, but surely in today's world we can recognize quality whether it was originally intended for the farmer's wife or the tailor.
I haven't had the luck to stitch on either model yet, so I can't weigh in on which one I like better. I guess I am just honestly curious. Does anyone here who has had the luck of sewing on both care to share their opinion?
