If you don't want to get an older machine - though they're really good for quilting as girls already said - try Janome. I love their machines. I also prefer mechanical over computerized (mine is HD3000) as there are less things to go wrong with it - at least from my experience, mechanical machine trends to be more reliable than an electronic (and cheaper to fix in case something went wrong!).

This is true. They are much cheaper and this is a great advantage. Thank you!

Mechanical sewing machines may not have the precision of a fully computerized sewing machine but it is without a doubt, more cost-efficient and affordable as compared to its counterparts from other categories. "Janome 2212 Sewing Machine" is one of the great mechanical machines, especially for beginners. It is capable f undertaking all the basic sewing assignments.

In looking over those machines, you need to figure out what kind of sewing your going to do, 3 of those machines are industrial, do you really need a industrial machine? What kind of sewing do you do? How experienced are you? Those machines don't have any of the features that I consider important, needle up/down, low bobbin indicator, but mechanical machines don't have those at all. Juki is a very good brand, I just don't know anything about industrial machines. As we all agreed before, buy the best machine you can afford, hopefully get dealer support, and also, test drive before you buy.

Oh please don't buy a new Singer. They used to be wonderful, but now they are not. You didn't say what kind of sewing you are going to want to do, and maybe you aren't sure at this stage, but buy the best machine you can afford. Personally, I love the computerized machines. I particularly love Berninas, but I think Baby Locks, Janomes, Juki, are also great machines. I would recommend a Bernina 530 for a beginner. It will take you far into your development as a sewist/quilter. This machine would have solid performance, the stitches and feet that will make your sewing blossom. Make sure you buy it at a sale, and make sure it comes with classes and good dealer support, whichever machine you buy. Some brands have really good machines at the top end, and really poor ones at the low end (Brother, for instance), but the top end are as expensive or moreso than Berninas and Baby Locks. A poor machine can make you decide you can't do this, but it's really your machine. Best wishes on your decision.

One of my friends bought 9 (or so) Babylock BL9's for our local hospital. They are mechanical, they are good quality, and they cost $200.

Anne has given you excellent advice. Do not buy either of those machines. Older mechanicals like she recommended are great for basic sewing. A quality computerized new machine from a dealer would provide extra features. The difference between low end and quality is night and day. We want you to enjoy your sewing time, not be frustrated.

Welcome to the world of sewing!! I have been sewing for most of my life and have many wonderful machines! In my opinion, for a beginner, you don't need a super fancy machine with all the bells and whistles, but you don't want one that will be problematic that will discourage you from sewing. As far as the 2 machines you mentioned, I would not have either one of them. Singer, back in the day, was the best machine out there, but not anymore. I have a Singer 301, (nicknamed the Featherweight's big sister), a simple straight stitch machine, that sews beautifully, and a Singer 401, which was considered top of the line in its day. Both machine machines are from the 50's and they are very reasonable priced and I use and love them both and would highly recommended them. I also have two Bernina's that I love, a Bernina 830 embroidery machine, and a Activia 240, both are wonderful machines.
If money was a deciding factor, I would look into buying an older Singer from the 50's. They are easily available on Craig's List or E-Bay, you can really get some good deals.
Or I would buy a good quality, (Bernina, Babylock, Elna) basic computerized machine from a dealer. These machines have features that you can grow into, and will make sewing a pleasure. The other advantage of buying from a dealer is they will give you lessons and support and for a newby sewer you really need that. I would also look into joining a sewing or quilting guild. Guild's are great, because you will meet others out there who truly love to sew and generally will help you and teach you. Good luck on your sewing adventure and post what you decide on.
Anne

Which is better? I am looking to buy a sewing machine for a beginner (me). Does anyone here have a computerized one and do you have any technical problems with it? Is it any safer to go 'old school' and have mechanical dials?

btw, I'm tossing up between SINGER 4411 (mechanical) and SINGER Quantum Stylist 9960 (computerized)
