I have been quilting on my DSM but its getting more difficult with larger quilts. I have tried different brands of LA's at quilt shows but find that the extreme ease of movement, which is a feature that LA companies strive for, makes it hard to control detailed quilting.
1.I am wondering from other LA quilters, how do you control the free-flying movement when you want to backtrack over stitching? Do you brace you elbows at your sides or are there settings to have more control over machine movement.
2. Many say they have tension problems to overcome. Is that an issue on LA's?
3. Why would you choose to quilt without the stitch regulator on? Is it because you can go faster, slower, more control??
4. Is there any LA purchaser that had buyer's remorse. I see how thrilled many LA quilters are with there purchase but haven't heard any negative feedback.
5. If it is not going to be used for a business, can the costs be justified?
Thanks for any suggestions.
