Wish I could help. It's been a long time since I had a home one.
I have an industrial one.
I would be sure and get one that you can change down to a 3 spool.

i have a simplicity, and i wouldn't consider sewing half of what i do without it. i think it is a must. wasn't bad either, around $200.

Mine is a Singer and it's been great! It's a model from the 90s and is my mom's old one. Back in the day it was super nice, and it still runs great. I bought a service manual so I could keep it in good working condition.

i always wanted a babylock!!! but , $$$$ anyways, i had singer and i didn't like it.. i didn't like my PFAFF 4852.. now, i have my JUKI SERGER GARNETT LINE.. IT's PERFECT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i bought it for $299 on ebay at sewing supply store.. it has great review too.. i always knew JUKI is a good one because i used to own an industrial JUKI serger.. but... i have to say JUKI is better than others and aren't pricey!

I got the Brother 1034D last year and LOVE it!! Oh what a difference it makes... now I'm FAST lolol.... and neat, too
I've checked reviews on the net and there are lovers and haters; I think if you're on a limited budget it's a great machine, if you can afford to spend more then go with a Babylock - I'm limited - budgetwise - so I've added it to my stable of brother machines, and I'm very happy with it.
You can get it on ebay, but I found the best price at WalMart online.

They say in one of the books I bought that you can actually make your own ribbon with it LOLOL haven't tried that, though.

I was looking into the Babylock myself, because the idea of self threading is VERY appealing to me!! I will keep an eye out on ebay!! If not I will just have to save my penny's!!

Thanks gals for all the recommendations!!! Now I need info on a nice sewing/embroidery machine and I'll be set. I have my mothers husky and an old Singer, but they are both almost as old as I am......Let's just say they need to be replaced is all!!
