my head is spinning
i've been endlessly researching on the internet between forums and reviews and blogs, talking to dealers, testing out models - i am probably even more confused than when i began. there are many factors to consider and within each price-point, each machine has slightly different features from the other that they all seem to weigh out about evenly.
in the end, it may just come down to the cost factor because who knows how much deeper i may get into sewing, in a few years i might want to upgrade to more advanced features or i may be fine with the basics!
thank god i love shopping cause at least i'm still enjoying the process!
