    Need some feedback!

    Good Morning all, I have decided to bite the bullet and get a new sewing machine. I'm in the process of looking, and comparing, and stressing out! I have a 9960 quantum now, so I'm looking for something with faster spm, and the ability to handle thick fabrics, also need a decent size throat. The new machine will be used mainly for quilting. I'm in the thousand or under price range. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Hey, Look, FABRIC!

    Brother 1500 is what I have. It has a big throat area. Straight stitch only. It has needle up/down, knee lift, auto thread cutter, pin feed, extension table, all the quilting feet you need, and telescoping thread feeder. They are about $600 or even less. I would then buy the Eversewn Sparrow 30 for all the extra stitches and portability. It comes with ext table. It is about $400 or less.
    I believe giving what I can will never cause me to be in need.
    Being cheap is not a badge of honor.
    My heroes are working people, paying their own way, taking care of their children and being decent human beings.

    I have a Juki with 9" throat and love it. Jukis are workhorses.

    I also have the Janome 1600P and love it. Because I have mine on a small quilt frame it's was little hard to thread for me, mainly because I was standing in front of it as it was turned sideways. When I take it off the frame to use for something special, it's so simple. Needle up, needle down, thread cutter and all straight stitch. What a work horse!!

    For those of you with the 1600p, how is it for free-motion work?
