What do you guys think about these three? Do the prices seem too good to be true? They seem really low to me but maybe I'm not used to looking at the stand-alone machines. The Janome seems to have more options like rotating your design, changing the size, etc. It also says Upgradable Software. Do you think the Brother machines are unable to change the software? Or is the software something that goes on your computer and then you just download the designs to your machine? Sorry to keep asking so many questions. :) I called around Anchorage and there are no stand-alone machines in this town so I can't try anything out.
Mostly I just needed a break from sewing buttonholes. The dress is almost done.
