    I’d choose the Janome as well. I’m more Med advanced and am looking for a new machine now. My 30+ yr old singer is finally saying it’s time to retire so I’m looking for a new one that will allow me to sew reg patterns as well as on jeans and quilting . My dgts want kids so I also will want a machine that might do embroidery for lil ones cute out fits that gammy will make for them?? I’d love to hear your suggestions for this type of machine.

      I have a previously owned RUBY HusvanaViking ssp. it does great on quilts has a large throat area, mine had the embroidery unit so have done a little dabbling in this as well , results thus far are marvelous.
      ONLY purchase previously owned machines from sewing dealer store whom you know and trust.. I had issues at first from previous owner these were resolved no extra cost to me.. and did not pay full price. brother and singer do not offer as good of compatibility with most AnitaGood or other brand name embroidery designers.
