    I did the entire interior of a boat - marine canvas - on my Viking Rose. Find yourself a good dealer that's NOT in a JoAnn's.

I have 8 sisters and we all quilt and we have all owned various models. However at this time, everyone one of us girls has Husqvarna Viking machines and would NOT give a one of them up! Good luck with whatever your decide to purchase!
    I also have the Viking Sapphire 875Q and just bough the H Class 100Q yesterday after lugging the Sapphire to several classes. I love my 875 but it is not light. The 100Q is a nice little machine for the money. I paid $349 and all of the feet I have fit as well as the walking foot. I thought about the Bernina B330 but it was $1000, I would have to buy several feet and it had 1 buttonhole, no Fix button (thread tie off), the speed control was only good for buttonholes and when not using the foot pedal (I didn't understand that why have it then), no hard case, and no ability to raise the presser foot a bit higher for bulky project and no presser foot pressure adjustments. It did have memory and a few more stitches, but for travel I don't need memory or more stitches. I'll use the extra money to buy more accessories that I can use on both of my machines. I'm happy and my back will thank me.

    I have the Viking #1 with embroidery, the mega quilter and my latest Viking Ruby; love them all. Not sure where you are on the east coast but make sure the dealer is good. Mine is in Carrolton VA and has free monthly embroidery classes and they are very knowledgeable about all of the Viking machines. All of the staff in the store are really nice and I like going there. These are things to keep in mind. We have a Bernina dealer here and I wouldn't buy there because of the staff and management are rude and I wouldn't want to have to deal with them too much. Is this a basic machine or does it also do embroidery. I got mine used but I knew the previous owner and I did go thru the dealer so I got the classes and warranty and it only had 7 hours of use. The previous owner just decided right away that she wanted the latest one out so she got it. Lucky me. I know their new Topaz 20 is 1900. I knew I had to have larger hoops than most with 4x4 would have gotten me bored really fast. I use the largest one the most so I made the right choice for me. Vikings are really good machines; talk to your dealer/store.

    The only machine I sew on is my Viking 6020 which I bought new in 1969. When my children were young I made everything from their undies to their snomobile suits on it, including jeans and jean jackets. It is nearly indestructable and I can do all the cleaning and service on it myself. If the new Viking machines are made half as well this one it would sure be my choice.
