HI All! I have caught the sewing bug!

Right now, I am using my mother's OLD Montgomery Ward machine, but I am looking at dealers to get my very own machine.

A sewing shop employee recommended the Janome:2206 for me. Anyone out there know about this machine? I want to make sure I do my research before I purchase.

Any other machine brands/models that would be good for a beginner, but also a good long term investment?

I am interested in making gifts, garments and quilting. (One class at a time!)

Thanks for the help!

You might like the Janome 2212 I tested one of those & it did really well with layers of fabrics. It also has twin needle capability. ..........There are so many sm out there. Many good quality sm.

Our dealer has 2 free lessons when you buy it. It cost $149 here ... no sewing case, but it does come with snap on feet.
It is mechanical. It has a nice 4 step buttonhole & zig zag, straight stitch & some stretch stetch.

There was a recent discussion here on the Magnolia & Sewist 500 if you can afford a bit more money. Those are drop in bobbin.

2206 is probably a fine machine, but it has limited capabilities so you will quickly grow out of it so to speak. I own a 2212 and it does everything I need and I quilt, sew clothes, and mend.
