I don't do commissioned quilts or quilts that I might sell.
    I had always had Singers till I discovered the Vikings when I worked at the old Joann store where the dealer was. Then on my break one day she demonstrated the Designer I. Now that is all I will own. Yes they are expensive, and while I do sew for people I rarely use the embroidery stuff for customers. I enjoy sewing for gifts and just love experimenting with all the stuff the new machines do. My new love is quilting with the huge embroidery hoops on the Designer Diamond.

    I was also going to say that you can FMQ with the feed dogs up. I have done it and had no issues. Some people prefer to do it this way.

    I must say the FMQ is a real challenge to me anyhow. I guess I wanted to find out that if the dogs could go down all my troubles would go away! Right now I find that the machine is like a wild horse that gets away on me.
