    They are great. Ask to speak with chuck or Brenda, the owners. I know them well. Have been doing business with them for more years then I want to count.

    You might look into Penniwinkle, I have tried sweet sixteen, tinlizzie at show in 2004. I like the Pennywinkle they sell floor (made by them) I was able to buy one, I also have the handle frame that is used in from. My machine is a Brothers 1500s. I bought in 2003 or I would have their machine too.!! Tinker

    I would love to have a quilting machine but it doesn't matter how many times I measure the room it isn't big enough!

    Bailey's also have a sitdown table model now. You might consider something like that where space is an issue.

    I have a 15" Bailey. Granted, the Sweet sixteen is a fantastic machine (I test drove one and fell in love), however, I would never have been able to afford one of those. I love the Bailey because it gives me an opportunity to have my own "longer" arm machine. It is a very simple machine, with no bells or whistles which I do sometimes miss. There is less that can go wrong with it though. Many of the gals who do have Bailey's have made several modifications to their machines to accommodate their needs. If you are interested in a Bailey or have one already, I do suggest joining the group at yahoo. There you will find much help for any issues you may have or questions regarding owning a Bailey.

    I purchased a used HQ 16 from a private party and had a small issue with it. I posted a question on facebook about it and within an hour I had the company asking me to contact them. I did so and spent half an hour with a man going over my machine and what to do with the problem. He asked me to send him some pictures and I did. He then called me back and stated that he would be sending me some parts with the return label to send the old parts back. Well, what he sent me was all of the electronic parts and the machine works great. The best thing was the service. I purchased my machine from a private party and this company I can't say enough good things about it. I didn't pay a cent and I am able to call them anytime and ask any question. I've never heard of Bailey's, but as far as machine and most important SERVICE I would go with the HQ.

    I have the Bailey Pro 15, and it is a wonderful machine.

    We took it off the frame I had it on and put it into a table my husband built. As a matter of fact I will be using it this weekend, quilting one of the grandson's secret surprise quilt.

    not familiar with the Baileys, but i did get to play with the Sweet 16 (and the Babylock Tiarra) at the Cinncinnati Quilting Expo recently. I loved the Sweet 16..the Babylock Tiarra is the same machine (and i was told they are made by same company??)
    It takes up very little room.....which is a bonus if you dont have alot of space.

    I would own one if I could!
