I have an Avante 18" Handi Quilter and am thinking about purchasing the micro handles. I have done mostly all pantographs and want to start free motion quilting, but I am so nervous about it. I thought maybe the micro handles would give me more control. If any of you have micro handles can you please tell me your experience with them and if they help you or not. They aren't cheap, so I want to be sure they will be useful before I spend the big bucks. I would appreciate any input! Thank you in advance!
