Janome Sewist 500
I tried searching the forum but got no results for this machine. Does anyone have any experience with it? My well- loved and often used 40 year old Singer died yesterday and I am faced with the daunting task of buying a new machine. I need something that sews well on heavy fabric, but also does well on lighter basic sewing. Not particularly interested in electronic models or a lot of fancy stitches. Thanks for any thoughts you might have.
