I may need to get a new sewing machine. I do just basic sewing. What would you recommend.

I have had 2 Brother machines and liked them a lot.
If you are just looking to do basic sewing, make sure you get a machine with a drop in bobbin.(I'd think by now they all would, but I guess you can still find ones without...and they're a PITA.)

If you are a Costco member, they usually have Brother machines at good prices.

I completely agree with what Sues said. I got a machine at Costco a few years ago, the LB6800, and love it. If you have any problem with it, Costco has a great return policy.

I have two Brothers and have been very happy with them.

If you can look up the models online, try to get one that has metal gears instead of plastic. The plastic gears don't hold up well.
