Can anyone recommend (from personal experience) a good, basic, durable sewing machine?

Mrs. Brownrd would like to buy a sewing machine. She wants a very basic sewing machine for alterations, puppet sewing, and light stuff. She has never had one before. Keep in mind basic doesn't have to mean cheap. She likened this purchase to when we bought a new oven: no electronics, no LED timer - just an oven. Any recommendations?
