    DH and I are going to Nolting tomorrow to browse through their machines. We had bought a second-hand midarm (not their brand) from them a few years ago, and since we're opening a shop, we've decided to take the plunge and upgrade to one of their models. While I'd love to have all the "bells and whistles" including the IntelliStitch, I am just wanting the get a good basic model that IntelliStitch can be added to down the road. Any recommendations on a particular Nolting? I really want to have Nolting...they are close by in case something happens, and I've had great customer service from them in the past. I'm just having trouble deciding! Thanks in advance.

    I have an HQ, but I have a friend that has a Nolting and absolutely loves it. She had problems with tension in the beginning, but once past that she loves it!!!

    Thanks everyone. I haven't heard much negative about any of their models, so I guess it's just a matter of deciding which model will fit best for us. :)

    I have a Nolting 24 Pro. I love it. It was the best purchase I have ever made. The customer service from the company is wonderful!

    Do you ever have problems with the tension? We have a Nolting and are having tension problems.

    We have occasional tension issues but nothing major. I'd suggest calling Nolting and speaking to Dan in the service department. He is super and can usually talk Kevin through anything over the phone. Usually turns out to be something very simple to fix (at least it has been in our case).

    Thanks. We did just that and Dan was so helpful. It is so nice to have that kind of service without someone wanting $$ just to answer a question. Problem is all taken care of now.
