I am new to sewing and want to take the plunge on a quality machine, I've heard the German machines are the best "Phaff, Adler" but can be expensive to fix. I am considering a Juki 1541, Consew 206RB5, 255RB3. I like the beefy look and vertical hook of the 255 but it is $400. more then the Juki. Japanese versus Chinese? What would you buy, want to stay under 2K?
