Re: Second machine for classes

I had the Janome Mod-200, and loves it, but sold it cheaply to a friend in need. She wouldn’t let me give it to her.  I missed that little 12-pounder. My S5 and 15000 are just too heavy to tote .

So now I bought a JW8100. It’s basically the same as the Mod-200.  It is electronic, sews great, 12 pounds, plenty of stitch choices, needle up/down, and I can set it to stop in the down position (my preference).    It came with an extension table and walking foot. They run about $350 online.  My back thanks me.  

If my sewing event is a retreat, I do lug my S5; but for short sewing events, this little one is great!

I have a 3160 which is a very light weight machine. It doesn’t embroider, but it has most of the features for a class machine that you would need.

Hi everyone, I am looking at buying a second machine for classes. I have a S9 which I love. I don’t need the second machine to embroider. Just lighter weight but hopefully will use all my feet, etc. as the S9. Does anyone have a recommendation or have experience with any of the lighter weight machines? Thank you! Hope you all have a wonderful day.
