I have been visiting dealers and can either the Janome dc5100 or Brother sb3129 for very close to the same price. I am looking for a machine that will be very easy to use (fool-proof really) and provide decorating options.

Neither of these machines have been reviewed on this site so I was wondering if anyone had any experience with either!

Thank you!!

I wish I could tell you specifically about one or both, but what I do know is that I prefer making buttonholes with Brother than with Janome machines. (I've worked on two mid-line Janomes, and one mechanical "box store" Brother.) That's just entirely a personal preference......

That Janome DC5100 is the newly colored clone of the Kenmore 19233, so there are reviews for that machine here on PR.
