I am looking to buy a new machine. 

To be used for piecing,  quilting,  and embroidery. 

Help me decide.

Baby Lock Ellisimo 2 or Janome Memorycraft 15000.

Will purchase one or the other on May 8 - 0% finance day at my dealer :)

I don't know what your budget is but when I have my next $6K (cause my credit stinks and can't finance) i'm going to get the below.  I only like Brother Machines they are so user friendly but I do know Baby Lock are very similar. (Same design & same threading)

Take them both for a test drive, try threading, changing the bobbin, and changing the needle,do that both have the same things, like auto thread cutting, feed dogs that go up/down or have to be covered with a plate.  Ask the sales person which one comes in for the most repairs? Have fun.
