oh i hope you enjoy your set up. i have that same thing but i dont have the big frame.
but i could add it if i wanted too. but the 1600p. runs so nice. i do have the stitch regulator
and i do really like that. enjoy it is fun. to practice on i just put two pieces of older fabric
with batting inbetween and went to town practice. when i bought the machine the guy
told me to only use superior thread 50wt. and that is all i have used with no trouble.
