Need help with buying an industrial sewing machine.

Hi all,

I need some help with buying an industrial sewing machine. I'm a one person business where I make and sell professional decorative pillows and hand bags out of home upholstery fabrics, canvas/ duct cloth, leather, and fleece interfacing with zipper closures. What type of machine would you recommend I get? I would really like a machine where I can sew with these materials as well as, sew in my zippers.

I have been told that I should get a walking foot machine with a servo motor. I have also been guided towards a new Seiko STH-8BLD-3 for $1250 plus $100 to add the servo motor, and $100 to buy the left and right zipper feet to make it a total of $1450. If you scroll down between half way and 3/4 of the page you can see the details of this machine at this link http://www.miamisewing.com/specials/canvas.htm Is this what I should be getting and is this a good price?

They also have a Juki DNU1541 for $1300 I'm not sure if there's extra for the servo motor for this one and assume that the left and right zipper feet are total of $100 as well. Is this what I should be getting and is this a good price?
If you scroll sown about 1/4 way down the page you can see the details of this Juke 1541 at this link http://www.miamisewing.com/specials/canvas.htm

I was already to go down to this store this thursday... June 23, 2011.. to test out the Seiko with a servo motor, but I have some concerns about the store and if they are selling me the right equipment. A DIFFERENT store that I talked to said that the Juki 1541 is a better machine, BUT I should be getting the Juki 1541(S) with the clutch AND servo motor together. I was under the impression that it was an either or situation, not both. Can anyone clarify this for me.

Help I don't understand, every store that I have talked to gives me different information! Can anyone recommend exactly what I should be getting and who's reliable to buy it from. I seem to be going around and around with used car salesmen.

If you need to see more of my work to get an idea... I do want to add leather to my work now but it's not included in these pieces... go to this link www.PierroStudios.etsy.com

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Jacque

Jac, this may qualify as advertising (which is against the rules) but if you will post this question in the "Interior Thread" you will probably get more qualified viewers. Matter of fact there is a "Read Me" thread there about sewing machines.
