    I have the Baby Lock Quilters Choice, I bought it 4 years ago. Now I see this one in some email I rec'd. Anyone have one? Your thoughts? Thanks.

    Hi,
    I don't have one, but have been looking at them! It is replacing their Espire model and that machine was a great quilting machine.
    I have an Elegante 2, Ellure, and a Decorator's choice.
    Heard it's an upgrade of the Espire.
    Bet you would love it!

    Bet it would cost a pretty penny, too. Wonder how much it is worth, that would be the thing I am curious about. I do really like using my Quilters Choice, I did see that the Symphony has the automatic threader and scissors, two features I love. Thanks for the information.

    Hi,

    Since we wrote in this post I have purchased a Babylock Symphony and I LOVE IT!!
    It's basically the Babylock Espire with a new name and a few added features. It's also a lot like my Elegante 2 in many ways, no embroidery but some more quilting features.
    I have only had it for less than two weeks, but I sure do love it!
    I keep it at the quilt shop that I work at as we work on samples there. It's a wonderful machine!
    Just wanted to update this post and question.

    I am happy to hear that you like the new machine, can I ask more or less what you paid? Am in Canada and not had a chance to see just what they are worth. Sounds like a great machine.

    The MSRP on it is $3500, but I got mine for under $2500.
    I absolutely am thrilled with it! It's very similar to my Elegante 2 without the embroidery....but has the wonderful extension table that comes with it and so many stitches!
    It's cool.....

    I have the Espire and lovelovelove my machine aka Quilla. She has the most even stitches of any machine I ever owned. Over the last few months I took machine-specific classes to get to know her better and now I am signed up for a series of quilting classes. What a gem.
