Here is a link to the version 5.1 I tried out at the quilt show today:
It was set up on a table with a Janome 1600p. Basically you sit down, grasp the handles, "floor" the pedal, and start free motion quilting by moving the machine around. This was a lot easier than trying to move the quilt around on my Bernina 1230! It was very fast and easy to make flowers, circles, loops, and with even stitching to boot.
The quilt show price for this setup was $550 plus tax, but it is for the deeper harp machines (which my Bernina is not). For my Bernina, I would need the smaller version 4.1 for $450.
I'm just wondering if anyone who has an Easy Quilter can tell me how much they like it. I'm especially wondering if it would be as much fun if I were using the smaller setup with my Bernina with its slower stitching speed.
Any comments about this system would be much appreciated!
