    Hello from nothern Californa

    Hi,
    I just discovered the Quilting Board while looking for a new sewing machine.
    My husband and I live in northern California.
    I'm a new quilter (almost a year) and I've decided to replace my 30 year old New Home.
    My budget is around $500 and I've been looking at the Brother PC240 machine as I've read many positive reviews. I would apprciate any advice and/or comments,
    This site has been a wealth of information for me already!
    Thanks

    ​Welcome from Ontario, Canada. I own antique Singers and modern Berninas so I can't offer any advice about Brother machines.

    Welcome from Southern California! My sister loves her basic Brother machine she got at Costco many years ago.

    Hi and welcome from Southern California! I have a Brother PC420 Project Runway and love it. I don't do much machine quilting except a few smaller crafty projects (mostly stippling), but love it for piecing and general sewing. I make purses/totes to sell and my machine is very heavily used. I find them very easy to use, in fact, just bought another Brother (a cheaper one, though) as a back-up machine.

    I found my new (used) machine! A Pfaff Tiptronic 2020 and I got a great deal!
