    Wow!

    I'm pretty sure I'm in love with that thread cutting/reverse pedal. The laser is knifty too. You would think someone would have thought up an aftermarket laser like that already for cheap enough to stick to the machine.

    I told DH that every widow in my guild had the top of the line sewing machine and trades in for the newest model as soon as it comes out and I know he didn't want me to wait to be a widow to have one so it just may be my Christmas gift. I want to compare the Dreamweaver to the new Bernina coming out in Oct.

    I don't think it is available as an attachment. I think you could use a laser level behind your machine on the table. It wouldn't get in your way when chain piecing. Right now I'm using this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e5Lh-b45IKY It's so much better then the hard plastic one you have to tape to the machine.

    I talked to my Brother dealer yesterday and they think will be in store by mid to late September. The XE will sell in the $8000.00 range. I can'twait. I am retiring soon and planing to look into a mid arm, think this might be the best choice. Think of an 11 inch opening to machine quilt. Can you tell I am excited!!

    Umm, I've seen little battery operated small pen sized laser lights at the dollar store with about 6 different tips. There must be a way to rig one up. Has anyone tried to rig one up.

    I just saw the machine at the dealer today, and that laser thing really does seem ( seam!) cool. You can also use the pointer to move the needle position and point to where you want to stop.

    I tried this machine last week at the AQS show here in my town. It was totally awesome. They had a special pricing for the duration of the show. The machine was $4,500(500 off the retail price when it comes out in October ). That special price also included for FREE a $2,000 sewing cabinet (a really nice model that opens up to a huge table top, with drawrers for storage) and the three piece carrying totes (retail about $250). I was SOOOO tempted to reserve one since it was such a good deal,a nd the vendor is two minutes away from where I live. However, I reluctantly decided I was too new at this quilting hobby, and needed to wait awhile.

    Anyway, I don't think you'll regret it. There's not much this machine won't do. ENJOY

    Every time I think they couldn't possibly make these machines do more, they surprise me.
