    Babylock Melody owners, how do you like them????

    I was in the market for a new sewing machine, wanted something that could do a better job on FMQ then my Singer ONE (beautiful machine, not for FMQ tho)....I was planning on choosing between a Bernina 350, which I was told would be too small, a Juki TL2010 and a Janome 6600.
    I went to the Janome dealer, who also sells Babylock and he had a 6600, but suggested I try the Babylock. I used to have a Grace, which was an excellent machine, but again, not something that was ideal for quilting....gifted it to my MIL.

    I didn't even get to the Janome, I came home with the Babylock Melody........I think I was sold on it the minute I saw the sideways stitching!

    My only concern is the throat space is a little smaller then the Janome and Juki I was considering (bigger then the Bernina I think)

    So just curious is anyone else has this machine and how do you like it?

    I have a different Baby Lock (Espire) and would not want to trade her. The needle-threader alone makes this machine worth its weight in gold. I use the cutter almost exclusively and LOVE it. The one thing I experienced with the throat and quilting is that I managed to push the motor speed to slow and wondered why things weren't moving. So keep an eye out for that.

    I looked at the Melody but ended up with the Symphony. I absolutely love it! Like MadQuilter said the needle-threader and auto thread cutter are amazing! I think you will be very happy with your new machine!
