I'm looking to buy a new sewing machine, and was wondering if anyone has the two I'm looking at, and could maybe give me some pros/cons. I need suggestions from cosplayers, because normal people don't understand the types of fabrics we use and the things we create using sewing machines. I'm currently looking at the Janome Horizon 7700, and the Juki HZL-G210. They both appear to have most of the same features, and price-wise, I think I could get the Juki for cheaper. However, I'm looking at quality over price right now. Anyone have thoughts on these two machines specifically, or the brands specifically?

Side notes: I only really do clothing production/costume design & production, and I don't quilt.

Current Machine: a 9 year old Kenmore machine from Sears


Thanks!

I'm also looking for recommendations, if anyone could be of service. I'm hoping to stay under $500, and I only need it for sewing (no embroidery or fancy things like that).
