I need some help finding my next sewing machine.
I have been using a Janome Sewist 500 and it has been a great machine. Never a problem, including tension.
I mainly sew very lightweight fabric. I do not need any embroidery. I would rather it not be all computerized, so simpler is better. I need it to be heavier than my current machine, as mine vibrates it's way across the table. I need it to be fast. I would like it to hem, like a serger, I guess.
I would like it to be under 600 dollars new.
Not interested in great old used machines, I have been burned too many times on a great Necchi , Juki and Bernina , only to discover later that there were issues.
Internet searches either take me to consumer reviews or sewing forums .
Any seamster/ seamstress out there with some makes and models advice for me?
