Default LA machine suggestion needed

Although I would like a Bailey I have an opportunity to purchase Handi Quilter Simply 16 Long Arm Quilting Machine for about $1000. It is a second hand machine and it first belonged to a LQS. It was purchased by a quilter who I think is upgrading and selling it. It works fine and has all the leaders, clamps, the table and a frame (don't know which one yet) but I can try it. It is time sensitive so please tell me if this is a deal not to be missed or rather something to let go and wait for a Bailey? Thanks for all your help.

Try it out and see if you like it. At that price it is a steal. Besure the table is one you like. I had the HQ16 as my first LA and liked it but have upgraded. Besure the 16 has a big enough quilting area for you. Many blocks are bigger than you can do in a single pass with a 16, that is why I upgraded. Does this one have the stitch regulator, if it does that makes it an even better deal.

Try it and if you like it buy it. I have the HQ Sweet Sixteen and I really like it.

It sounds like a great deal, but you may later want to consider a frame to go with it. I think I answered one of your threads about my frame.
