Hi there,
Seems this decision depends on what you want to do -- whether it's clothing, accessories, upholstery, or embroidery, or quilting -- and how you want to do it.  By that, I mean if you want tons of different stitches, a lot of convenience features (one of that Janome's features is an automatic needle threader, for instance), then your modern machines are the way to go.  I imagine if you were a quilter, you'd want a machine that a lot of quilters like, so you could research that.

I'm mostly interested in clothing/accessories, and I love vintage machines for some odd reason -- your vintage machines don't necessarily have the modern conveniences, but they're structurally sound and involve no plastic parts.  My Singer 401a was made in the 1950's and still runs like a champ!

Of course, part of your budget will also involve buying accessories for your machine, but you probably know that.  Best of luck!   Grin
