    Tin Lizzie

    I have a friend who is looking to buy a Tin Lizzie, but knows nothing about it. I told her I would check with the experts on the Quilting Board to get some info for her. Can anyone help me?

    Is there a specific reason why she is looking at this brand? Dealer nearby? Cost? Tin Lizzie gets mixed reviews from purchasers. Some love it; some have problems. Here is a link to a thread on the QB about Tin Lizzie:

    I also have the Viking. I actually like the machine, tension easy to control, sews a nice stitch, but I'm not thrilled with the frame. It's on the stiff side. Make sure that she gets an opportunity to test the machine before she buys.

    You will probably find a wealth of information and opinions on the Yahoo group.
