I would like to have a machine that has needle options (up/down, right/left, pressure foot up/needle up, etc) but really don't care too much about decorator stitches. I love piecing and garment construction (not jeans). Is Elna still reputable? Can't find much about them online. Thanks for offering this great venue by PatternReview.com

Janome makes Elnas now, Necchis too. One of the top brands, IMO.

My last sewing only machine purchase was the Elna 7200 and it is a super machine. Not as quiet as my Babylock Combo (sewing as well as machine embroidery).

In addition to having various presser foot positions and up/down options, my particular model also has a pressure adjustment for the presser foot, which is helpful if you sew sheer fabrics.
