I've played with both and may end up with a stitch regulator, but even if I have to buy that it's still doable financially. I could buy a used machine that is much nicer, but I don't want to spend over $2500. given those parameters, I think this is a good selection. I looked on a quilting forum for some reviews and did see one from someone who didn't like the machine nor the frame. She ended up buying a set up that was $10,000. Well, it should be better than my opportunity given it's over $8,000 more.

Mary if you are happy with the outcome for your own quilts, that is marvelous. I figure I'm never going to be the super quilt show girl, but this is my hobby. That means I get to do what I want (almost a direct quote from Tom, QBee's husband).

I use pantos a lot. My free motion is mostly meandering, zig zagging, that kind of thing. I don't do fancy feathers and real tiny fill in type stuff. Love my pantos and add to my collection all the time. Very Happy

$2500 is a really good deal. A good frame cost almost that much so for the set, yeah, it's a great deal. I think you would like the stitch regulator. It helps to have one less thing to worry about while quilting.

I did get the machine. It will be a good starter machine. I'm envisioning wanting to upgrade in the future, but since the price was really low, I'll get my money's worth and be able to sell it for about what I paid for it.

As I know zilch about the machine and frame, I had no advice to give. But now, I'm excited for you! Hope you love quilting on your new set-up!

Hope you get more use out of yours than I do with mine. I find it intimidating and being a perfectionist, I'm afraid I'll never be good enough.

I'm not really that much of a perfectionist. Medium perfectionist, I guess. I don't think I'll be intimidated by it though because I'll tinker with any kind of machine to see how it works, etc.

I am thinking that the hardest part would be to get used to hand controls. Kind of like getting used to a motorcycle vs. a car.
