I'm looking at the Hello Kitty Sewing Machine - Green (11706). It's a 3/4 size machine and reviewers say it's the same as Janome Harmony 1017. It looks simple, but I'm a true beginner. Should I go with this one? It has a lot of great reviews, but I'm wondering if I need something a little sturdier and more versitile. I'd rather not have to buy another one in a year or two.

Oh, and to explain the topic name, I'm asking for it on my wedding registry Smiley

What would you guys reccomend for a first machine??


ETA: looking around in the forums and then on Amazon, I just found this on sale Brother CS6000I 60-Stitch Computerized Free-Arm Sewing Machine with Multiple Stitch Functions. It looks so complicated!! But at the same time, that's just another way of saying room to grow, right?

ETA: I went with the Brother Machine.

Thanks Lique! I'm sure the Hello Kitty machine is great. It has a ton of great reviews.

I hope the brother machine is a good fit for me. Smiley I have all sort of plans for it already, involving many new pillows for my couch to start out with.
