which new Brother sewing machine?
Well from what I've seen on this board and various consumer sites Brother makes the best 'cheap' sewing machines. There are several at Wal-Mart that I'm looking at and I don't want to pay more than $150. Now I'm a guy that knows nothing about this and I'm buying for a wife that knows enough to make a pillow. So my question is: If you were to buy a new Brother sewing machine for $150 or less which one would you get? This would be for basic things while she learns but I'd like her to be able to try her hand at a quilt eventually. There is a Brother 67 Stitch Quilting & Sewing Machine, XR-65T that I noticed and also has one step buttonholer which consumersearch.com said was important. There is also a Brother 73-Stitch Function Free-Arm Sewing Machine for $5 more. Now, are these perhaps too much sewing machine to start out with and I should look at the $90 or $125 models? I just want the most bang for my buck and the best all around option. Opinions please and thanks!
