    Default Sewing machine recommendations?

    Looking for a good sewing machine for a bit of everything that's not too expensive

    I have a Pfaff, was cheap, so it doesn't have the bells and whistles, but it does the job and does and nice straight stitch, a real work horse.

    My next one will be a Janome - with the bells and whistles

    I had a Janome for years and thought it was the best brand. My mum bought it brand new with all the bells and whistles but it ended up living at my place

    Anyway for my first Mother's Day dh took me shopping to buy my own machine and I tried out lots - was pretty much set on getting my own Janome. Then I tried the husqvarna emerald and fell in love. It is a wonderful machine. The fancy stitches are wider and look cleaner than the Janome. Plus it isn't as fussy with needles. The Janome would only accept Janome needles which are sometimes hard to get.
