So, I am new to quilting and am already addicted!! DH rarely gets me out of the sewing room anymore. LOL!

Anyway, I currently have a small Bernette that is NOT a quilting machine. Fortunately, DH has decided to gift me with a new quilting machine for Mother's Day! YAY!

So, now I want to make a wise decision as to which brand and model to choose. I am considering Bernina and Janome. Does anyone have a recommendation for a problem free (especially with no thread and tension problems).

My budget is preferably under $3500.00, but anything up to $4000 would be considered. Quality of the machine and ease of use is more important than speed or number of fancy stitches.

Thank you so much for any help/advice!!!
