Default Just purchased New HQ Avante

I did it too! I made up my mind and purchased the HQ Avante! I am so excited! It should arrive the end of next week. I am siked! I have wanted a long arm for so long (pardon the pun). It took me a long time to make up my mind between the Crown Jewel and the Avante which are basically the same machine. I hope I made the right choice. I am so excited to get quilting on it. I tried one out and loved it. I glides.................... So smooth. I am getting it with the HQ 12' Studio Frame. I think I am going to ask them for the micro handles also. Happy. happy, joy, joy! If there are any HQ Avante users here, lets chat.

I was told by a quilt shop that had the Avante that it is cheaper then the Crown Jewel because it does not carry the Babylock name. They are the same machine.

I have the exact same setup - I love mine - right now I have my studio table set at 8 ft because of space requirements - soon I will have the full 12 ft setup. I am so thrilled for you - its a wonderful machine.
