I am thinking about buying a long arm/mid arm quilter. I would like some input about some of the machines and the software (quilt cad etc.) I need a machine that will glide on the rails as I have Lupus, RA, As and such. I do want a machine that is dependable and so far the HD Avante and the Babylock Crown Jewel are looking pretty good to me price and so forth. Although no one will put the price of the Crown Jewel and the say the can not ship them as Babylock will not allow it. When I get on Babylocks web site contacting them does not look easy where as HD the phone # and such is right there. So could some of you give me some input on this.
