Of course we don't have the $ for such a machine either. I told my hubby that I'd really like to have it and was willing to go back to work part-time to get it. His stance was that if I had to go back to work, then I didn't need it. His words.
Guess I'll be taking the class to use the HQ 16 at the local quilt store 30 miles away. If I can't own it, at least I can learn to use it and rent time on it. (while I save my money)
