HELP! My WONDERFUL hubby is getting a large bonus check and it's going to be almost $10,000 more than we expected. He just emailed me and said that he's decided to use the extra for a new LA and table for me!!! Yippy! Now all I have to do is figure out what machine to get! I've looked at the HQ AVANTE and really like it except that I was outrunning the stitch regulator. I've heard this is common but wonder if as I get better at using it then I won't have that problem. The dealer is local which is a plus. There is a Gammil dealer nearby...PLEASE tell me what you like and don't like about your LA if you have one.
