    I can't advise on other machines. The Sapphire is my 2nd Viking and I had the first Viking for many years.
    I have been using the spring foot, and I tried another one suggested. The tension just doesn't work well. I asked at the shop too- they gave me some comment about it being me not the machine...didn't even look at it...then tried to sell me a new machine.

    I have an SE and I have great luck FMQing. I took several FMQ classes at a store that sells Vikings along with other brands, and brought my SE. It was great because the instructor gave great advice and if you had an issue with the machine, a sales person familiar with that brand could help.
    It does take some practice. A couple of things that helped were quilting gloves and an extension table. I'm really good reading & following written instructions, but I don't think I would have EVER gotten the hang of FMQ without taking classes using my machine.
