Hi! I am awful at comparison shopping, and both of these are in my price range. I am between being a beginner and intermediate sew er. http://www.amazon.com/Brother-XL2610-Free-Arm-Stitches-Functions/dp/B000A5CKHG/ref=pd_sbs_hg_4
this is the pink onehttp://www.amazon.com/Brother-ES2000-Function-Computerized-Machine/dp/B0007ZHEJ8/ref=pd_sbs_k_5
and this is what I am calling the green one because of the one green area on it, lol.
Let's see, other useful info to help figure me out:
-I am looking to get into using stretch stitches, and I suppose a twin needle function would be useful too for that.
- My current machine is the cheapest Brother available. I've had it for a year and love it.
-I get frustrated having to deal with lots of the mechanics of machines. I just want it to do what I want without me having to tinker around too much.
-I don't sew like every single day, except sometimes I go into a sewing frenzy, so I need something bad ass.
-The pink one is swaying me because of the color. Help me be objective!!
