I want to get her a good machine that she can grow into so i dont mind getting more than a beginner needs. Any general guidance or recommendations for specific machines would be appreciated. I know NOTHING about thses things. Thanks

    When my top-of-the-line machines were in the repair shop for 2 months apiece (small town, long line of machines ahead of mine to do), I found a brother machine at WalMart that I used for 4 months. I was so pleased with it. It's a Brother 9050, has lots of cool stitches anybody would love, sews pretty quickly, and last January was under $200 on the ticket.

    I sew like a woman possessed, and have been known to put 10 years on one machine in under 6 months. I also keep them clean and well-oiled so they don't go gunnysack on me.

    I kept using the machine after my other two wonderful machines were back from repairs.

    It won't set you too far back financially, and if her sewing zeal wanes after a couple of months, you'll save thousands.

    She will also learn how to use a complex machine, and it has a video in its instruction pack that will help her quick start her sewing on the machine.

    That's really a plus.
    Good luck on your purchase, whatever you decide.
