    Baby Lock Unity

    My husband took me to one of our LQS to buy me a Baby Lock Symphony. I ended up with a Unity instead....a combination sewing machine and embroidery machine. WOW!! I took the machine out the of the box today and I've messed with only a few bells and whistles. I've never embroidered so I have many many hours of learning. I'm afraid I won't get anything done for awhile because I will be learning about the new machine. I may have to switch to the other desk that holds my Bernina Activa 230 when I am ready to actually start piecing a few quilts again!

    Congrats! I have the Crescendo and have been wondering if it would be worth it to have gotten a combo quilting/embroidery machine. I do have a year to "trade up" for full value.

    Welcome to a fun addiction. I got my first emb. machine last April and I'm trading it in tomorrow for one with bigger hoops. If your dealer offers classes and/or clubs, go to all you can. I've learned so much from the classes. Baby Locks are very user friendly. There are many places online to download free emb. designs. Feel free to PM me if I can offer any support. You'll soon see things that need emb everywhere.

    Totally worth it. I thought the same thing and was reluctant but went for the combo anyway, and I haven't regreted my decision one bit

    Thanks for all the support here. Last night I did some piecing with it and WOW. Love the auto threader, cutter, foot lift, the quietnes....and the lighting. I can't tell you how many times I saw the baby tear while I was threading it! I haven't opened the embroidery part from the box. I need to finish some projects before I let myself play with it!
    f I am signed up for an embroidery club and the LQS owner will be great to help me when I'm ready for that part of the process. I think I made a good choice. I will definately be in touch with people for where to go for free patterns.
    Thanks!
