    Default Brother Luminaire Innov-ís XP1 Sewing machine.

    I want to a demo of this this new machine this morning. It does everything! LOL After about 30 min in, I thought to myself too many functions actually takes the fun out of sewing for me.
    Most of it computer work. The dealer kept saying all this for only $18,800! Well it made the other machines look like real bargains. LOLOLOLOL

    Wow! Been hearing a lot about this machine recently! But $18,800 ? That's about $24,500 in Canada where I live ... I guess I'll just repeat your LOLOLOLOL ...

    Gosh that does sound spendy. I love my Brother machines, but that one does not tempt me. At all.

    To me, the more features they have (specially computerized), the more there is to have problems! I have computerized machines, but I'm quite happy with what I have! I think all the companies are about to price themselves out of business.

    All those bells and whistles look and sound great, but I would never use the machine to even 25% of its potential, so that would be a waste for me. I would love to be as skilled as some of you on this board who could really put the pedal to the metal with that machine! If you would use the machine and can afford it, I hope you get one and love every second of using it.

    For that much money, it would have to cut my quilt pieces, and tell me where all the pieces go. LOL

    I wish we could be speaking face to face, because I know my tone will come across not the way I want it to, but, no, it still doesn't tempt me. I am liking my simple machines very much. Not too much to go wrong and I don't do anything complicated. I can FMQ on my Brother 1500 just fine and right now that makes me pretty happy. If I ever got another machine it would be a sit down long arm like the Juki or Handiquilter. I have the room and the $$ but, I'm still not there. (Smiling face!!)
