    Santa is coming!

    OK, finally decided to take the plunge... Both the HQ Sweet 16 and the Babylock Tiara are the same price and come with stitch regulator at the LQS... What are the pros and cons or each? I can't believe they are both the same. Is that possible?????

    Don't want to make a wrong decision, I'm sure either one is the right one, but how do I choose?

    I would have to quilt on both before I decided. What a great Christmas gift for yourself!
    Got fabric?

    I tried both at a quilt show and absolutely cannot tell the difference. They both handled the same (great) and the table was exactly the same, the stitch regulator, the piece that goes on the table - all identical. And so was the show price.

    Lucky you - want one so bad. I'll take either.

    I don't have either one but I have had many Babylock products, sewing machine, Embroidery machine, serger,
    (which I still have), and I love their products. Their customer service can't be beat.
    When the day comes to purchase a long arm, I would definately consider Babylock.
    Just my humble opinion.
    so many quilts to make, so little time.

    Wow, they both look great. I would love a sit-down quilting machine. I have one on my wish list.

    Jenny at Missouri Star Quilt Company uses a Babylock and loves it!! Not saying that the other machine is not good though!

    Just close your eyes and pick one. If both are identical, whichever one you choose won't matter.

    They are the same. Both are made by HQ. So..........

    Go for dealer support.

    I was hoping to get a couple of people together to make a group order on the SS - that's the only way I could afford one.

    What is a group order on the SS, always ready for a deal. I guess that will be my decision maker, the deal. Both are at my local shop. The only thing diff with Babylock is that you can buy the "Gold" warranty.
