Welcome!

The best advice I can give about getting a new machine is to go to the dealers and test drive them. Find the one you are the most comfortable with, one that feels like a "fit." Upgrade to fit your budget to get the bells and whistles you want.

Glad you joined, looking forward to seeing your creations!

Hey there Ina .. I felt JUST like you when I started 11 months ago... I bugged my husband to get me the Brother I had found and fell in love with quilting.. Once I got it ... There aint NO stopping me now. I am loving all the stitches and learning how to do it all.

Thanks for joining US!

Hi Ina. Welcome! Please don't be shy about your quilts. We ALL started at the beginning. The more you quilt the better you'll get & before you know it people will be saying they don't want to show you their quilts because you're so good at it. :thumbup:

Ina, you really should change your user name. :) Being a beginner and learning doesn't equal not sewing well.

Anyway, I think this is a great place to learn and get advice.
