The trouble is, there is no one dream machine. There are many machines that one must have for dream fulfillment. There's the super-duper embroidery machine that will embroider anything you can find in digital format. There's the Singer 7 class, for those really, really heavy projects, like 1/4" thick saddle leather, or harnesses for loading ships. There's the walking foot industrial for the not quite as heavy projects, like backpacks and horsey gear. There's the ... Well, that's enough to get me started!

I think I'd need 3-4 to really do everything I wanted well. The Janome AQS 2009 which I have now to classes and travel, something like a Juki 2010q for quilting, and something like a Viking 875Q for 273657483921 stitches.

Hmm. You've really gotten me thinking. If someone could blend the beautiful qualities and features of a high end Pfaff with the lovely feel and presser feet of, say, a Bernina 1630 or 635, the nob placement of the 635 with the looks of a Bernina 550 and the fast heel cutter of a Juki, that would do it for me. And it should have a perfect stitch right out of the box, easy to learn menu and and no ensuing problems.

Oh, I'd want the on/off switch near the front like the PCP has, and an easy, pop-off throat plate system and easy-to-see-and-replace bobbin system.

And I'd still want my Juki 2010 for quilt piecing and free motion.

I think I have mine. It is my Janome 6600 and my old Kenmore 158:17860. Both offer different qualities but both sew very very well. I couldn't ask for more. I look and read on here about so many machines and hear about the love their owners have for them. I couldn't ask for more even though I might dream about some of the newer machines that have come out recently.

and if money were no object I think I would get a TOL of each brand and try them all out

Singer 503 (early 60's) in a cabinet with a stool. Actually, my mother owns it, and loves sewing with it (lots of special stitches and built-in buttonholes) and has told me I can have it when she dies, and I reply that she can take all the time in the world, I'm in no hurry. :-)

My dream machine WAS a Bernina 750 but with all the problems that continue to plague it make in a far distant dream. DH also put the final nail in the coffin. Besides my 2006 Janome 6600 continues to sew nicely.
