Editor comment

Performance wise, there is nothing to choose between the two. Since XR1300 is an intermediate sewing machine, one must expect it to have much more variety of stitches to experiment. Those 70 extra stitches that XR1300 has adds a lot to the creativity. It doesn't mean that CS6000i is inferior to XR1300. It sure is a beginners favorite. If you are under tight budget, CS6000i is definitely a good machine to consider.
