    Sewing/quilting machine

    I have a very basic Janome sewing machine. I would like to get one that also does quilting. There are so many on the market I don't know which is best. Any suggestions? I want to stay under $400 if possible. Thanks for your help.

    Re: Sewing/quilting machine

    Do you to piece tops or quilt entire quilts? You need to get a machine that has a wide throat to easily quilt quilts, the bigger the better! Most of the machine in your price range have about a 5-7" throat, suitable for quilting baby or smaller lap quilts. The higher end machines have from 8-11" throats. Which work well for piecing and quilting bigger quilts.

    Lots of people like Brother machines in the under $4-500 range. I have a Singer One Plus, which has a 7" throat, it was $349 on Amazon. I haven't quilted big quilts on it yet because I have a longarm, but I have quilted table runners and it does fine.

    Good luck with your search!

      I have a Singer Confidence Quilter and I love it. I have quilted two Cal King quilts and three Queen size quilts. My dream is a long arm...but that's way off in the future!

        I have a Brother CS6000i that is really nice. I just bought a Juki F300 and it is great! It quilts beautifully. Any mistakes are definitely due to operator error. Lol. I use the same walking foot for both machines but the stitches on the Juki are very even and the quilt feeds through more evenly as well. I'm really thrilled with the Juki. Happy hunting! Let us know what machine wins your heart
