What kind of sewing do you do most often?
The size and type of sewing projects may determine which machine best suits your needs. That 1.5" extra space from the needle to the right side of the machine isn't significant, but if you do a lot of large quilts or other large bulky pieces, that 1.5" is something you may appreciate. The difference between 1.5" and 3" is more significant than you may think.

Does the 570 have the larger bobbin? I can't tell you how much I love that larger bobbin.

Sewing table....yeah that's a tough call. My table does not have an insert, my machine just sits on top of the table so I don't have that issue to deal with. I bought a Sew Steady clear plastic platform that extends the surround of the free arm so that I can machine quilt easily. Lots of different sizes, and they are custom made to fit your specific machine.

If you wait until next year, you may find that the prices have gone up.

Tough decision...too much money at stake to end up with something you are not completely happy with. Does your dealer have a return policy if you decide you didn't make the right choice?
