    I've had an Ult.2002D for about 10 yrs.. I love it. Brother is very user friendly. I wouldn't hesitate to buy another. as others have said, buy the biggest field you can afford. i don't know if the stand-alone machines go bigger than 5x7.

    Hi,

    I, too, have a Babylock Elegante 2 and I second everything you said......love, love, love, my machine! It's user friendily, has great hoop sizes, and it quilts beautifully and has tons of decorative stitches, too. I use it mostly for embroidery as I also have the new Babylock Symphony which I use for piecing and quilting. I also have a Babylock Ellure which I use daily for piecing quilts at the quilt shop where I work. It also embroiders, but doesn't have a lot of the features of the higher up ones.

    I love my Babylocks!

    I have a Brother 1200 Innov-is. I love it. Straightforward instructions and easy to learn (not much dealer help closeby) Never a skipped stitch.

    My first embroidery machine was a Janome 9000 memorycraft. I love it for my quilting but don't use the embroidery on it. Have a Babylock Esante that I bought used & find it more user friendly. Last June I bought a new Esante & am really loving it!

    I have a Babylock Elegante and I love her. She's sweet and even tempered, works for peanuts, never complains. She's just a real doll.
    She goes in once a year for her annual physical, I clean her often and she just keeps on truckin'.

    I have a Babylock Ellagio ESG3. It is a fantastic machine both for sewing and quilting. I have five hoop sizes and also purchased a separate giant hoop with electronics in it so I can do jacket backs and 14 X 14 inch embroideries. My daughter has a commercial Babylock and has had very good luck with it. They all do very good quality embroidery.

    I have the Brother 4500D which I love. It does more than I know how to do, connects to my computer if I want it to, sews like a regular machine like a dream. It is the exact duplicate of my daughter-in-law's Babylock machine except it was much cheaper. It isn't very noisy which is a wonderful feature because it is in the room with our most popular TV. I don't like to isolated from the family when i sew.

    My fist one was a Baby Lock. It did what I wanted it to but the weight was all on the motor side and it got to be too difficult to pick it up and move it to my work area.

    I ended up trading it in for a Pfaff CV which I dearly love. I figure it will be the last machine I buy ... other than my FW.
