    I have two Janomes and I love them. They stitch beautifully and stand up very well. I personally would never buy either a modern Singer or a modern Brother because they are both made in mainland China and their quality control is terrible. I have a computerized Janome8077 that I got at a bargain price and a magnolia mechanical, very basic machine, but I am not familiar with the DSK40. Janomes are made in a factory in Taiwan where the quality control is excellent. I think this is much more important than how many bells and whistles the machine has which is something you just won’t use very much.

    I’ve just had a demonstration of the Husqvarna E20. What a brilliant machine! I hadn’t realised just how antiquated and worn out mine has become. No clacking, no dragging fabric and no tangles of thread. Just a smooth purr. I was looking for something in a higher price bracket but at &170 it does everything I need it to, it includes seven feet including embroidery and has adjustable foot pressure. It has many other features that machines of a comparable price don’t. I will compare to others before I buy but I wanted to share my experience in case it’s useful to others x

    Does anybody which is definitely a reliable sewer endorse computerized devices over mechanized? It appears like several like the technical over computerized. I’m looking to at one point have a new machine, I’m presently sharing my moms mechanical Kenmore 14..Its over 22 many years of young age virtually no not as much as and also was actually in fact 100 dollars system in return if. I have issues along together with it getting seen inside the bobbin thread and sometimes when beginning to sew it has viewed upwards. I don’t think it has ever been washed or perhaps solved which I understand of as well…lol

      I’ve been in love with my electronic whizz-kid of a Husqvarna Lily since I bought it in 1998. THE BEST for needle placement precision, accurate fancy buttonholes, and all sorts of stuff. But I also use my Bernina 1005 just as frequently.

      Neither is BETTER than the other: they are just DIFFERENT, and it’s more down to what you prefer for which job… I like Lily for the 10 different buttonhole styles and the fancy footwork, and the speed and accuracy of the stitches. I love the Bernina’s way of sewing through a tin can if you let it! It too has super-acurate stitches, and impecable manners, and like the Lily, will cope with some of the REALLY TOUGH things we throw at them. Lily does MORE: Nina the Bernina does less, but does it slightly faster.

    May I suggest that psychology matters just as much as anything else when it comes to sewing machine preferences? I just love my Bernina 380, which I bought last year. My sister-in-law was equally happy when she inherited my old Bernina Sport from the ‘80s! Wasn’t anything wrong with it, it was just that I wanted more elastic seams, and I really got plenty. However, it seems that new machines have a lot more plastic and less metal in them. I can’t tell you exactly what’s so supreme about Bernina, that’s why I go for the psychology theory: It feels like luxury, especially when one started out at an old Singer as a teenager in the 1960s!
