I second the advice to go to a dealer, and seriously consider a used machine. You will get a lot more for your money.
My dealer sells Pfaff and Singer and something else but I am hooked on Pfaff's and don't even consider the other brands he has. I have LOVED all my Pfaff machines, and I have upgraded a few times. The dealer gives me great trade-in deals. There was not a single thing wrong with my traded in machines, I just wanted an upgrade.
He sells those traded in machines for very good prices, PLUS he guarantees them.
