Welcome, Elizabeth ! Are you looking for an actual quilting machine or a sewing machine that you can quilt on ? If your looking for a machine, Sewing Machine Plus .com has several in your price range. Also, they have just a quilting machine, too. You could test it at a store and than buy online at the cheaper price, thats what I did.After comparing prices they were the better buy and no sales tax and free shipping.  Hope this helps!     Susan, North Florida

For a sewing machine you can quilt with, get one that has a good dealer near you.  Someone you can trust to help you if there are problems.

Fro a long arm, perhaps you can find a good used machine.

Welcome Elizabeth...I can't believe that a shop wouldn't want you to test drive the machines.  Mine in Reno wouldn't sell me a machine unless I tested them...actually they were able to upsell that way.
