Hi Everyone. I'm back. Been away for a while, but things here are going well. I remember telling you guys I would not buy any sewing machines for an entire YEAR...and I didn't.
So I have had my used designer 1 for quite a while and have now just purchase a cheapy brother from Amazon. It is the DZ2400. I haven't done much with it yet, but I sewed out some stitches on my D1 and some on the Brother machine and so far: YOWZA. The brother makes an AMAZING straight stitch.
Anyway, I'm planning to make some items for my etsy store tomorrow on it and will be sure and let you all know.
I ran out of time today but will also post some photos of the stitching. I think this model is pretty close to the brother CS-6000i.
I have been reading the reviews on Amazon for this machine and the Laura Ashley at the same price. This one has mirroring! That is a terrific feature and not found at this price much! Enjoy your machine and welcome back! -- Edited on Today at 11:38 AM --

Oh I thought the LA one was EXACTLY the same...but I guess not. Still haven't gotten a chance to really sew anything...but got some tissue holders cut out. I don't really use the mirroring on my viking too often...but certainly a nice option to have. I dunno..I had a Juki for a while..and a Janome for a while and for whatever reason I just really like the Brother machines.
I'll look a bit closer at Amazon myself..both tout a larger sewing table. Mine did come with the quilting feet..including walking foot. I am still completely in awe at the straight stitch...I'm the one that's so picky and to get a machine for $199 with an absolutely perfect straight stich. I'm a happy camper.
