    Sorry, I haven't heard of that one, but have used the HandiQuilter Sweet 16. If space and/or budget were a major consideration this is what I would have gone with.
    Have fun quilting! If it isn't fun, you will miss a lot.

    So is it convertable to either move the quilt around, like the Sweet 16, or to use it as a longarm?

    I see they're going to be at the quilt show in Rosemont (Chicago) so I'll be sure to look them up. I've tried the Sweet 16 and the Tiara - loved them both. This one is almost 1/2 the price.
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    It's one or the other. When you purchase you decide if you want to use it as a sit down or use it on a frame.

    There is a Yahoo group for both the Sweet 16/Tiara and the Sunshine 16. It would be interesting to sign up for both of them and read through the posts. People are very frank on the groups on both their successes and problems.
