    HQ Sweetsixteen

    I am thinking about purchasing a HQSweetsixteen sit down machine?
    Would love all the pros cons and opinions about this machine.

    thanks.

    If I didn't already have the HQ 16 and had a place with less room, then the Sweet 16 would be the way to go. Though I would have a suspension frame with it to hold up the weight of the quilt. I saw one, it sat on the edge of the Sweet 16 table and went up for quite a bit and had spring or bungee type cords that had clamps on the end to hold up the quilt. Unfortunately I can't find a picture and I think it was home made. Will PM if I find out more.
    Have fun quilting! If it isn't fun, you will miss a lot.

    I'm interested in the Sweet 16 as a sit down machine.
    With the other thread recently I have a concern on the operational results.

    AliKat ... are you able to get consistent tension top/bottom without pokeys?
    Another question, is there any difference between the HQ16 and S16 ... and just that one is a sit down and the other on a frame?
