Hi, I am new to this site. I have been sewign on and off for 10-11 years. I am looking to buy my first computerized sewing machine. I have been looking at the Brother NX400. DOes anyone have one? Are they good? Can anyone recommend any good brands for me?

While I don't have the Brother Sewing Machine, I have heard that it is a good one. There are a lot of different brands on the market and one should try as many as possible before purchasing one. I consider buying a sewing machine to that of a vehicle. Test drive until you find the one that fits with your budget and needs. A basic computerized sewing machine should have many different decorative stitches, a one step buttonhole, ability to buy attachments and specialty feet, and give a good quality stitch each time. If one wants embroidery, then it should be easy to download designs or purchase additional designs for the machine. Some of the name brands are Pfaff (my favorite), Janome (also makes Kenmore), Viking, Bernina, Babylock, Brother and Simplicity. The Babylock, Brother and Simplicity are similar machines. Just some thoughts to consider.
Happy Stitching!
