    I just got my Bailey's 13" this past weekend. I bought it from someone who couldn't use it due to health reasons but it isn't even a year old yet. We set it up and I have been playing on it - it sews like a dream. I have the stitch regulator and I like that too. I am only using it for my own quilts, not commercially. For that purpose, I could not see spending $7000 or more for one of the machines with a lot more features. It has all I need and it sews beautiful stitches. Two thumbs up from me!

    I know what you mean. I quilt for myself and friends... No need for an expensive set up. Thinking about the 15 or 17.... Would love to get one used....

    What frame do you have with the Bailey 13?

    I am so envious. That is the machine I want. I'm so glad to hear you love yours. I'll keep saving. Maybe next year.

    I got a great deal. I saw it first on the Bailey Quilting Machine group. Then I saw it on Craigslist. It was about 2.5 hours from home but within 15 minutes of where one of my daughters goes to college. Keep checking craigslist around you - they're out there. If you're patient, you find a deal too.
