    Does anyone here have one? If so, so you use it a lot? Does anyone know what they sell for? I want one, and since Santa hasn't got me anything yet, I might ask for one of these.

    Check Ebay. I don't know to much about them as I don't think I need another machine. LOL

    I was turned off by the fact that you get the cool, handquilted look on the front and like a chain stitch on the back. From what I remember in my research? Do a search here using the search feature as there are several threads about it. To me having a chain stitch on the back would make it much less attractive and I wouldn't want to use it on a quilt- only on the top. Which would really limit its use. And it's very expensive for a machine that does one stitch only. If someone gave me one or it was REALLY cheap, I'd consider it. I think they were running like $2400 when they came out.

    I haven't got one, though I did get a very brief demo. I love the look it creates, but it is a little pricey. I can't remember the exact price, but it was a little over $2,000, I believe.

    Some people are also using the machine for garment sewing and creating some pretty neat top-stitching effects.

    I love the top side of the stitches, but not the bottom :(
