Does anyone have this? Do you like it? What is the difference between a speed control and a stitch regulator? This looks like a good deal for a machine, etc. for quilting just my own quilts, but I want to make sure it's good. I'd LOVE to have a long arm machine, but this one is much more in my price range !!! :)
Quiltlady, check this out:
I have personal issues with AllBrands and would never purchase from them, so consider my opinion biased :-) but Ken's offers the whole package for less money (as well as other packages) and with a 3 month lay-a-way option. We've been looking at frame packages lately, and if I decide to go with a Gracie then I'll definitely be buying it from Kens. He sells on E-Bay, but also has a store and site: http://www.kenssewingcenter.com
Juki's are good machines; I am just gravitating towards the Babylock Quest because it has a dual feed foot like the Pfaffs. IIRC, a speed control simply allows the slowing down of the machine speed; a stitch regulator will match the speed of the machine with how fast the machine is moving over the quilt, and is the better option of the two.
I'll check both these out...
