I have the "itch" to purchase a new sewing machine and I have been particularly taken with the Brother PQ1500s. This is a straight stitch only, high speed machine that comes with an extra long bed and a variety of specialty feet such as a walking foot, quilting foot, etc. I have read some good comments and some not so good. I haven't seen a machine in person and the closest Brother dealer does not have one on their floor for testing. I was wondering if anyone in this well respected group has any experience with this machine and would share their opinions. Really would like to hear about the FMQ capabilities and ease of use. I know it isn't a terribly expensive machine in the scheme of sewing machines that are out there, but as newly retired, I don't want to make a $700 mistake. Appreciate any comments, thanks.
