I’m new to this discussion group, although have seen some really good ideas and suggestions,so I know I’ll get some good feedback!!
I’ve had an Elna super for 30 years that just died on me. I AM keeping it (it’s in for repairs now), but realize that my needs have changed and that I need a different machine. I do quilt art (as opposed to bed quilts), so I do a LOT of machine applique type stuff. This requires a lot of stopping and starting in the middle of the work. I came up with about 12 items or so on my list of needs. So far in my still early search I have come across the Baby Lock Quilter’s Choice. It appears to have ALL of the features on my list … and then some (I hadn’t even THOUGHT of a needle threader!!) There ARE a bunch of stitches that I don’t forsee ever using, but for the most part, they look doable. It’s within my price range, but am just curious as to it’s dependability and usability in the REAL world. I don’t see the Baby Lock’s mentioned anywhere in discussion from quilters, so am a little cautious as I know NOTHING about them!!
Any comments or suggestions? Does anyone HAVE Baby lock experience?
Thanks for any and all comments, suggestions or ideas …
