OK I've finally demonstrated that my quilting bug isn't going to go away, and I'm going to upgrade my machine from a $200 Brother to something pretty nice. Now I've been eyeing a Bernina for a long time but it's really out of my price range at this time, so instead I'm trying to decide on a Baby Lock.
Does anyone out there own a Baby Lock Crescendo? I'd really have to scrape together the money to get this model but I really like the laser and sensor pen features, which I'm told is all this model has over the new Aria (the Aria would be a more comfortable purchase for me). So my question is, do you find those two features useful for quilting? Would the sensor pen help with my thus-far-not-very-good FMQing? I have not seen either of these features demoed yet so I just thought someone out there might be able to give me some insight.
Thank you in advance!
