    I'm so curious to hear how the Crescendo does with free-motion quilting. Anyone tried that yet?

    Babylock Crescendo

    Michelle --

    I own the Babylock Espire and like it very much. The Crescendo is the "next generation". This past weekend I had the opportunity to sew on the Crescendo. She is "SWEET". It has a larger throat which makes it nicer if you do your own quilting. There is more lighting on the bed of the machine.

    It has a lazer light that you can turn on and off. The lazer shines out 3 or 4 inches ahead of the presser foot. To make half square triangles, you simply line up the corners of your square with the lazer, sew 1/4 inch on either side of the light, and cut in half for your two HSTs. I was hooked on it after the first seam with the lazer light. We used it to do decorative stitches along a seam line.

    It has the same sewing features as the Ellisimo Gold, but without the embroidery.

    You will be very happy with a Crescendo. I wish I could justify a new machine.

    I just took a look at the Crescendo this afternoon at our local dealer. I really would like to get it, but feel as if I should shop around a bit, both at the Brother and Janome stores. I have a Symphony that I bought right before Christmas, but already can see that I NEED that extra throat space! The laser thing is cool, and the machine is nice and quiet. Anybody want to buy an almost new Symphony?

    It's barely a week later and I that new Crescendo is sitting on my dining room table. I did look at the Janome, but I liked the Babylock. I didn't look at the Brother, mainly because Babylock is a family business located in my city. It is a very solid machine, extremely quiet and so far I think I'm going to love it.

    I just bought this machine..when i saw it at the Lancaster Quilt Show, that was it. The lighting, ease of operation, quiet motor, can't say enough about. Found several places on the web with instructions. Will connect with a dealer in this area soon..I have two Berninas, the 1630 and the 170E..Oh, and it comes with a table for quilting..Donna

    I've had my Crescendo for a few months and I LOVE it! The harp space, fabulous. Automatic threading, terrific (especially for these old eyes!). Auto presser foot raising, very handy. I haven't even taken the time to play with the laser pen yet, I've been too busy FMQ'ing!
