I had a Brother 1034D for years and decided to upgrade as it bounced around quite a lot, DDiL still uses it. I bought a Babylock Imagine 2, it's great and doesn't throw a fit if I thread it in any order. Not sure how the Brother knew???? I'd buy another Babylock, wouldn't mind one of their sewing machines but not as available here for some reason.

Babylock Victory it is! :dance: John at the shop was unequivocal (no car salesman patter, I know from  past dealings with him his enthusiasm was genuine) - I'm viewing and collecting it tomorrow, my Brother in part-ex. All your views helped me decide so thanks again, plus I did some online research - Threads has a useful review article. Can't wait :).

Your only regret will be not doing it sooner.

You will love it!
