    Hi y'all!

    I am new to this (all for that matter) forum. But would love to get started. I have been sewing for many years now. I learned how to sew on an old Singer tredal machine which i still have. Just in the past couple of years, I have picked up the hobby once again and am looking to improve my skills.
    I am currently looking for a high end sewing, embroidery and quilting machine. So far I have looked at the Brother Dreamweaver and the BabyLock Unity. Now I am hearing about the Viking Ruby. Does anyone have any helpful information for me to help me in my choice?
    Thanks
    Itchy Litchy

    ​Welcome from Ontario, Canada. I don't have any experience with those machines but someone else may have some tips.

    Welcome from SC Texas. I have a Brother but not the one you are looking at. I like mine very much and if I was looking for a higher end machine I would go with the brother.

    Welcome from the Adirondack Mountains of northern NY state. I finally gave up my Singer several years ago and got a Bernina which I love. They have many different models so I'm sure there is one that would work for you.

    Welcome to the board from Houston, TX area....I just purchased the DreamWeaver VQ3000 about 10 days ago, after drooling over it for 9 months. I'm really looking forward to getting to know it... You'll love this board - so friendly!

    Welcome from Clearwater Florida. I have Babylock machines and I love them. Very easy and friendly to use great quality as well. Another brand that is excellent is Bernina in my opinion.
