What kind of machine are you using now?

I have a New Home Memorycraft 8000 which I got right after the kids were born, so it's 22 years old and still going strong. I did look at new machines last year, and loved the Bernina 7 series, but decided I didn't need to replace my sewing machine right now. If DD would pick up sewing, though, I'd give her my machine and be out getting a new one for myself.

I would recommend some general web research, and then do a visit to your local sewing machine shop to let them tell you about machines and try them out. I like to buy mine at a place that offers lessons, and highly recommend you look for some place like that for your purchase so that you will have the support when you need it, and learn to use the machine and all its features, especially as the newer machines just do so much.
