    I tried out a Brother Dream quilter 15 yesterday...

    at a quilt show and omg! I loved it. Does anyone have one? Can you tell me how you like yours? What is a ballpark figure on price also so I can start saving?
    So many quilts.....so little time!

    Wasn't someone at the show able to give you a price?

    I'd do a Lot of careful research first. I found several negative online reviews and comments about that machine, which is sad because I love my Brother.

    A lot of times at the shows they keep the price a secret until they know you are absolutely hooked. They want to come up with creative financing so you don't realize what you are actually paying for the machine. Drives me crazy - because I don't want to fall in love unless I know in advance I can afford it.

    I think it runs about 7k. I don't have one but want to get one next year

    If it is the top of the line model, it is around 15K. Call your nearest dealer and ask for sure. I have the 6500 model and it was 8K about 5 years ago. Love it!

    From the specs and the photos, the Brother Dream Quilter 15 appears to be simply a rebranded Grace Q'nique/Block RockIt on the 5' frame that the Babylock Coronet is mounted on and is also sold as the HandiQuilter Little Foot Frame for the Simply 16.

    There have been several complaints lately about electronics failing on the Q'Nique/Block RockIt on that machine's Facebook group.

    If you like the idea of the 5' frame, look at the Coronet and Simply Sixteen more closely - they have a proven track record and a slightly larger throat space. Last summer, show prices on those two were around $5500, IIRC.

    I think I just looked at this machine on a table, today. It sewed nicely. I didn't buy it. Have to consider and test drive some others. Does anyone have a link that the Q'nique is made by Brother? I can't find one.
