My Kenmore Mini Ultra has finally bitten the dust (after a frustrating three week hiatus at the local sewing machine repair shop) and I'll be borrowing a friend's machine for a few weeks to finish up my current projects but my husband has agreed to buy me a new machine for x-mas. So...what's the new cool machine? I bought the mini ultra after seeing it in Bitch Magazine and it served me well.

Basically, what I need is something light weight that I can move easily, doesn't need to do too many fancy tricks (I most do home type crafts and costuming) but I might want to do quilting someday, it needs to look pretty (my fave feature about the mini ultra) and it needs to come in under the $200 price point. I'd really like an electronic machine b/c I've heard that they typically need less repair.

It's been a few days...but I thought I'd answer.

I've heard good things about the Janome Hello Kitty machine. Kinda cutesy - which may be good for you, IDK. Anywho, it's fairly inexpensive and it does the job.
