If you get a good machine, it will last you a lifetime and do EVERYTHING - so I think a really decent old second hand machine is better than a new, cheap machine. Personally, I swear by the old Singers (The ones from the '50s are particularly good) - if you can get one VERY cheap it's worthwhile getting someone to service it, but overall that should still work out less. I think the 201K I'm getting for Christmas cost 20 including shipping off Ebay, and although it works fine I'm going to shell out the extra 40 or so to have someone come and service it, and this thing is a god-among-sewing-machines. I couldn't buy one this smooth and reliable new, period.
