    Wawak has cheap Brother machines. I like the one I bought on ebay (new). It weighs about 12 lbs. but is a workhorse!

    I bought a cheap/light Singer at Walmart for around $100 and it has been a real trooper. I finally bought a wonderful Elna but it might as well weigh a thousand pounds. I cannot take it anywhere. My son has to take me where I need to go and unload it then pick me up. Don't get me wrong, I wouldn't trade it for anything but...since you asked, here is my second favorite machine.
    I am too POSITIVE to be doubtful, too OPTIMISTIC to be fearful and way to DETERMINED to be defeated.

    I have the Janome Jem Platinum 760 it is lightweight but sews like a big machine and has many stitches, needle down and you can also move the needle. I looked at the Pfaff Passport at Houston Quilt Festival this year, I really liked it and it has the built in walking foot. Good luck

    I bought a Brother on Amazon, great price, incredibly lightweight, I had it for about 5 years now and nary a problem, it is my traveling machine

    I like taking my featherweight to classes. I always think it sounds like a happy machine!

    In my opinion, for what its worth you can't beat a Brother from Wal-Mart. I especially enjoy the auto thread, needle up/down and push button start/stop (so you don't have to use foot pedal).

    I have a Brother, cheapo about $129, it's my machine I keep at my friends house for bee day.
    Walmart has some good cheap o ones too.
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.
