Buy used Bernina or a new Janome? Need advice!
I've never posted on this forum, but I got lots of great advice over on the kitchen forum last year when I was remodeling my kitchen. I am in the market for a new sewing machine. My mom's old 1964 singer seems to break down every time I start a new project. My FIL has worked on it every year for me when it breaks but I think it's time to move on. I am looking for something under $500 as I don't sew that much although I might start doing more if I had a better machine. I can either buy something like the Janome Magnolia 7330 or the 2014 or I have found a used Bernina Activa 130 that comes with 10 feet, 71 bobbins, and is lightly used condition although 10 years old. I can't decide! Any advice?
