Does anyone know anything about the Babylock Amelia? I have been researching machines because I will be purchasing my first sewing machine in July and saw the Amelia for the first time today. I think it is a brand new model but I'm not sure.

I have been comparing the Elizabeth and Rachel and now the Amelia. It seems like Amelia may not support twin needle sewing whereas the other BabyLock models do.

Any info or advice is appreciated. Thanks!

You will want twin needle so be sure about that feature. I have Sophia2. She has sewn everything I threw at her this spring. Love this series of Babylock machines. Buy the most upgraded model you can possibly afford.

I have one and I'm not crazy about it. Vibrates because it is so light. No auto thread cutter.

Go with Rachel. There are a lot of good reviews of her previous incarnation, Grace. According to the BL website, Rachel has a promo price right now.
