Does anyone really know the manufacturer's suggested list price for any or all brands of machines?  I'd like to be able to buy a new machines that will do a bit of it all (sew,quilt and embroider) I can't find out if I'm getting a good deal or paying the local shop what they want to sell it for.

I had to buy a new sewing machine and the sewing center I shopped at carried Janome.  I got one that was $1,200 on sale for $1,000.  It came with a nice size extension table, which I really like.  Has a good size led screen with touch pad.  I have had it a week and have been sewing up a storm and am happy with it.  My other machine was very nice but not computerized.  It was a singer and I loved it (for 15 yrs), but the hand wheel broke and they aren't making them anymore.  So I had to buy something.  This Janome 4120 QDC is on the lower end of the price of those they carried, but is supposed to be what I need for quilting.  At 12 lbs. you can easily carry it with you.  It includes a 1/4" foot, along with others.  You can also do freehand embroidery and freehand quilting.  The store owner offered free unlimited lessons, and gave me a walking foot, and a stippling foot (which didn't come with the machine and you would need to do the freehand work) and 10 extra bobbins as a trade-in for my old machine.  I don't know if I got a great deal or not, but I was hoping to not have to pay more than $1,000 for a good computerized machine and was assured this one was a good one and would do what I wanted.  I didn't look at BabyLoc or other machines, but thought Janome was supposed to be a good brand.  It also has a 25 year limited warranty.
