I have a Bernina 640 and it's a wonderful machine! I took it with me to participate in classes at the Mid-Atlantic quilt festival last year. Then it dawned on me to get a cheaper machine to roll over sidewalks, curbs, up stairs, etc. So I bought a Brother machine at Costco to use when I go to sew-ins, classes and such. It was cheap enough that if it gets damaged it won't matter. I found everything I wanted in a travel sewing machine for a mere $140. The Brother machine has a top loading bobbin that includes a feature where you don't need to bring the bobbin thread up before you stop sewing, a real time saver. It has needle up/down, needle left-center-right and the quilting feet I need.
What kind of machines do you use?
