Advice? New Sewing Machine

So...I have decided to buy a new sewing machine. [The one I am using is a 1958 model.] I want one that will embroider and monogram and that will do quilting. I am asking for recommendations. I can't spend thousands. But surely I can find a good machine for less than that. [I figure that I will save enough on monogramming alone to buy my own machine. I've been getting EVERYTHING monogrammed for precious grand daughter.]

I have made this decision because I have decided to start sewing and smocking again -for my precious grand daughter. I have a smocking gathering-machine. I haven't smocked since my DD was 10 or so.

Also, I want to make quilts. I have been saving material and patterns for a while.
So I am ready - I just need a new machine. I thought I would go to the local Bernina store and start there. Singers are good, and Sears always has good quality products.

So ladies...what do you suggest?
