    Looked today at Joann's at sewing machine. Nice Viking/Huskvarna Mega Quilter machine there with the extended table. It is about $900 BUT only sews straight stitches and the walking foot and 1/4 inch foot are extra, of course. Does anyone have one or know anything about them? At top speeed, it sews 1600 stitches a minute or some other time increment but its top speed is 1600 stitches which I don't truly care about.

    That machine sounds like my Juki. It's great for a second machine. I use mine every day. I use straight stitch 99 percent of the time. And from time to time, I like sewing faaaaassssst.

    I bought a Mega Quilter about 4 years ago, took it back and got my money back. The machine had so many problems, I just got tired of dealing with it. Even without the problems though, the machine just doesn't have the space to do a king sized quilt, even though the frame is big enough.

    There are actually 2 Viking machines with the name MegaQuilter, the original 9" throat machine and the newer MegaQuilter 18.8, an 18" throat machine. Based on your explanation of the machine and price, you're speaking of the original MegaQuilter. The machine is made by Janome as the Janome 1600P. It is also the same machine as the Pfaff GrandQuilter Hobby 1200. All 3 are made by Janome. I have the Pfaff version myself. It is a workhorse machine and stitches very fast and beautifully. I have mine on a Grace frame with stitch regulator and Qbot quilting computer. For quilting with a frame, I would prefer one of the larger throat machines. But the machine is very good for piecing and free motion quilting.
