Hello everyone,

It's a great forum for sewing enthusiasts. I have recently developed this passion for sewing and now looking for a good sewing machine for beginners. Did a lot of search on internet and read lots of resources. I am unable to decide which one should I buy.
I found out that Brother XL2600i is a good sewing machine for newbies according to this review site: http://sewingmachinesguru.com/

Please give me your expert advice.

Thanks
Amy

What are you going to be using your machine for?  Crafts, clothing, home dec???  Any basic machine is good for a beginner.  You probably don't need all of the bells and whistles and fancy stitches.  To be honest, the only stitches I really use on my machine are the straight, zig zag and sometimes a stretch zig zag.   As far as brands go, I have sewn on all of those in the link and not had problems with any of them.  The main thing with any of them is going to be getting to know the machine and how it handles the fabric you are working on, because they are all different.

Is there a machine shop where you can go and "test drive" one?
