I find if you practice proper maintenance, even a cheap machine will go pretty far. My mom bought me my first sewing machine several years ago (ie she cut me a check for $120 and I bought a cheap Singer for $100 at WalMart) and it still sings along after sewing fur, leather and denim. After each major project, I take it apart, oil all the parts I can get to and brush and/or blow out all the lint in the machine.

I may move on to a more expensive machine in the future (because I want to do fancier stuff), but for now I have a really good machine.
