Podcast Show Notes: Episode 2 Things to Consider Before Buying a Sewing Machine
$ Basic Sewing/Quilting machine: Brother CS6000i https://www.amazon.com/Brother-Feature-Rich-Stitches-Auto-Size-Buttonholes/dp/B000JQM1DE/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1532909779&sr=8-3&keywords=brother+cs6000i+sewing+machine
$$ Mid-range Heavy Duty straight stitch machine; great for bag making, quilting and garment sewing. This machine is considered to be a semi-industrial home sewing machine.

$$ Lower Mid-Range price point available from dealer; ok, so in the podcast, I said don't get caught up in "Project runway/Laura Ashley" branding of machines....well the Innov-is line model I was talking about is a limited edition Project Runway machine - still a good option, except is does not have a knee lift. The machine in the photo to the left, is the next model up, Innov-is which does have a knee lift! Very good feature to have especially for quilters.
