What sewing machines do people like (no Singers, please)?
I have a New Home that is older, even, than I, which I used until the late nineteen-eighties. I bought a new machine, and ended up with another New Home. I like it a great deal, but it's beginning to show its age. It has been thrown around the room a bit (earthquake), and moved several times, and I suspect it will be cheaper to just replace. The machine is a DX2030 (you aren't going to find it, remember I said it wasn't new).
The company itself is gone (acquired by Janome some time ago, while I wasn't paying attention).
I don't need something incredibly fancy, although it must be able to sew button holes and things. I don't quilt. I do work on heavy materials now and then, so it can't be too cheap or lightweight. I really just don't like Singers, so no sense suggesting them.
Anyone here sew? What machines do you like? Why?
