Default New machine needed

Can anyone help with picking a new embroidery machine? Currently I have a Husqvarna Viking Quilt Designer II with an embroidery attachment. I use it "mostly" for embroidering a design on baptism blankets for church. It's been limping along for a while, and it's time to get something new. That machine is discontinued, and I can't get replacement parts, software, or stitch cards for it anymore.

Ok, so, I'm looking for a compact, stand-alone embroidery machine (I have a Janome for piecing/quilting, so don't need a dual machine), that is inexpensive. I want something very basic, but I do need to be able to load my own design on the machine. Would like to be able to use both 4" x 4" and 6" x 9.5" (approx.) hoops.

I'm looking at the BabyLock Verve, but would like other suggestions. Thanks in advance!
