I have always had Brother machines and they have been great.  I’m not sure if they still make a lot of machines though.

I you are just starting out, I highley recommend getting a Singer. I had a very fancy one, for the time, and it was still going strong after almost 30 years. I just recently got a Husquarvana and it is truely amazing, so I would suggest one of those too, but the Singer’s are much more reasonably priced and if you are just starting out, they are a very good starter machine.

I have a Kenmore that I love…I got it as a high school graduation present and it’s still going strong.  There’s also a great warranty just in case, but I’ve never needed it.  I got the little quilt attachment set to go with it since that’s mostly what I do, and it does what I need it to.

I think if you sew all the time, it’s worth it to go with a pricier brand/model, but if what you do is fairly simple (like I do a shirt or a skirt now and then but almost never, and a lot more quilting), you might as well get a less expensive machine that does less fancy stuff but does it well and will last.

This isn’t mine (I’m sure they don’t make it anymore exactly) but it’s very similar: http://www.sears.com/shc/s/p_10153_12605_02016231000P?prdNo=2&blockNo=2&blockType=L2

Bernina sewing machines are great quality and easy to use. My mom has been sewing since she was a teenager, she’d tried other machines, but she always goes back to Bernina.
