    I love my Bernina 1230 (older model). Think I could easily learn to love my sister's Pfaff with the integrated walking foot too, though.

    I love Janome. I have had a Pfaff, Elna, and Singer (older ones) and now Janome. I am so impressed with Janome that all my machines are now Janome's. Kenmore is now made by Janome. I have an embroidery machine 6600P, 1100 serger, 350E embroidery machine. Have had no repair issues with any of them.

    Well, I've only had two Kenmores and a Viking 1+. I absolutely love my Viking but I want more modern features. Loved my first Kenmore, hated the second.

    Now looking for a new machine. After reading this thread, I know why it's SO difficult to decide on a brand. But I'll probably end up with Babylock of Janome.

    I have a Morse I have had for forty five years and the only plastic part broke in the fall of 2010. It was like losing a member of the family. It sits in the corner of my sewing room. I made my wedding dress on it.

    I love old Singers (metal) and Vikings prior to 1980.

    I have an Elna SU which is 33 years old and still going strong. I too am looking at a new machine but there are so many choices it's hard to decide.

    I have a janome 10001 and love it. I have an Elna 8000 love it also.
    I have a National serger since 1994 works very well with no repairs, Baby lock Evolve serger, an Old Elna serger,
    a 1958 Singer Industrial model.
    it depends on your individual needs and how you feel when you test drive it. I spent 8 hrs in the store before I bought my Elna, I just wanted to make sure. LOL

    For over 40 yrs., I sewed on my Elna. Made all my children's clothes and anything else that needed to be sewed. It was never in a shop, nor did it ever need anything other than cleaning and oiling, which I did myself. Then about 7yrs. ago, I realized that newer machines did marvelous things and I bought a Computerized Kenmore made by Janome, it is awesome, just wish it had more throat space. Also have bought 2 FW's, and an old 127 and a 66 Singer treadles. Some day I will get the cabinet cleaned up and rust-free and I will put the 66 in it and enjoy treadling away. Guess I better get on it as next month I will be 79.

    I only have two right now, only starting out. I have a Brother which works good, but I absolutely love my Husqarvarna Viking machine. I've used it for most of my sewing, and am just now learning to use the different stitches it has after about a yr. and a half.

    Ditto!! Yes viking and pfaff sold. But my dealer on the east coast of FL is still open and having no problem getting machines. All the talk of China not importing them must have been wrong.
