    Miriam, I think I would sew myself to the table if I used an industrial. People are always commenting about how fast I sew. But, honestly, when I'm FMQing (very often) I get the best stitch quality and flow when I'm moving FAST. Maybe an industrial would outdo me!

    Candace you would figure out how to make it go as slow as you need to or as fast as you want it to go in time.
    NEVER let a sewing machine know you are in a hurry.

    I know, I'm only joking;> Really, I have no more room for cabinets and an industrial would take up space I don't have. But, I've always wanted to play with one.

    my 301A stops immediately......the foot control is very sensitive and it can go really fast of course, but it can also go very slow (like slow motion or hand sewing speed) This was my graduation gift in 1957 and my source of relax/rejuvanate every day.

    Okay, I played with mine while sewing WOF strips. If I stopped suddenly, I sewed a stitch or two. The reason I haven't had an issue is that I don't stop suddenly - I anticipate a stop coming up and slow down, so I have no extra stitches.
