Subject: Help me choose? Elna 7300, Juki F600, or Brother QC 1000 Date: 11/3/09 7:53 PM

JUST GOT home from my dealer, Went in and told him I want a STRONG machine that can do button holes and do a variety of zig zag stitches.

He showed me the Elna 7300 $1200
Juki F600 $1200
Brother QC 1000 $1700

I loved them al!! The only problem with elna is there is not a long arm for doing sleeves. But it has a differential feed knob!!! OMG

The Brother Was Amazing too!! the Juki was Fab too!!

Which one should I get?? I work with thick materials, button holes and do some quilting.

Are these prices any good?
I need help choosing.

thank you!!

There are a few threads going about the Juki. I got one and LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it. But, don't take my opinion only. It is a personal decision. There- my 2 cents:)

Hi,
As I am in the UK I'll be no good on pricing but I tried out the Brother last year. I was really impressed too with the machine and the fact it came with a good range of accessories and the extension table. It has a completely different interface than the other two, being touch screen.

I went for a Bernina 440 in the end. I preferred the push button type. That's just me. It comes down to what you like to use. I haven't seen a Juki F600 yet and they weren't out when I bought my 440, but I would definitely have considered it.

Hope you make the decision right for you. And whichever machine you get, enjoy!

I have a QC1000, but I haven't been sewing with it for very long. Evidently, it does a nice, easy scant 1/4 inch seam for piecing! It is easy enough to thread and has a low bobbin warning. Very nice needle threader. You turn it on, tap it, it its ready to go. It came with a nice selection of feet and that big extension table.

although I love all the stitches on the QC1000 I think the touch screen will drive me crazy. I have an Iphone and more often than Not the touch screen drives me nuts.


Im gonna go back after thanksgiving, maybe the prices will lower for sales?

All I can say is, you might as well get the Juki , as apparently there is going to be a new thread every week here on PR.. JUST to torture me.. You will have loads of support from all the other members, who it seems ALL bought the Juki..sigh.....

Awwww. I am afraid of buying such a computerized machine like the brother, What happens if it breaks?? I am sure the warranty wont cover it. Or it breaks the days after the warranty expires.!

Warranty on the electronics is usually several years. Before you buy, check the warranty. Many machines have been sewing for years and are computerized. They were brought out a good twenty+ years ago at least and have a good track record. Check it all out thoroughly. Read the boards here. There are plenty of owners of computerized machines. Boards, reviews...get all your facts before you buy, try out the machines, and talk to the dealers and if you are looking online, then email the vendors and ask all your questions!
