I just sold my very basic janome machine and am looking to upgrade to a computerized machine.
No more Janome though as they are terribly expensive and the local Janome shop has one of THE most rudest sales people I have ever encountered.
So I am thinking Brother as I am on a budget.
I have $400,- to spend.
I am tossing between the NS20 for $379, the NS30 for $429 and and DS140 for $349,-.
The NS models have a steel frame and will wear slower, the DS140 is just a complete plastic machine and will end up wearing a lot faster.
I am still a beginner as I haven't really had a lot of time to sew with DS now being special needs and being a sole parent for life.
So that is why I really don't want to fork out 600-700 bucks for something that will be overkill.
The NS20 and DS140 have 40 stitches and 1 button hole, the NS30 has 70 stitches and 7 button holes.
So which one would you go for? There's $80 difference between the worst and best model.....
