Glad stuff is happening now ...

SMD are good, nothing wrong with their machines or their service but you need to know what you want.

But if you can try before you buy, its better ... Sadly not an option at the moment

If you ask anyone what their favourite machine is and it will vary, everybody is different ...

Me, I'm a Janome girl ... I think they make the best sewing machines (in my price bracket) but for Embroidery its Brother all the way.

@Penabby I notice you are in Devon - have you considered Exeter Sewing Machine Co? They are a bricks and mortar shop (for when the time comes) and a Janome stockist.
Yes, I did have a look at them, but I really like the model and price tag of the Janome 5060QDC from Sewing Machines Direct. I am encouraged by what people have said about them, so seriously thinking of ordering today.

I have just had a look again at The Exeter Sewing Machine company and found the Janome 5060QDC hidden in their online shop at the same price, not sure how I missed it before, so have messaged them and if they can get it too m promptly I will go with them.

I am happy as Larry! Just ordered from The Exeter Sewing Machine Company after speaking to Chris, he was great and offered me a days tuition when they reopen. Paid for and on its way, hopefully to arrive before the weekend. Thank you all so much for your help. So very appreciated  <3

Just to update you. My new Janome arrived today, got it out of the box, read the manual, threaded it and did a test and its just perfect, first time! Very happy so far  :loveit:
