    Longarmers please help

    I have been looking at the package bundle for the Block Rockit and the Unique. The grace frame that had been offered in the bundle (Grace 2) is being replaced by the Grace company by a new model. I haven't seen it or the price yet. My affordability is around 4500.00. My questions are: if you have one of these machines, would you buy it again? What should I be looking at to choose a good frame? Do you think you get more for your money buying a machine at a quilt show? And is there a comparable machine for the money? You all are much more experienced than I and I appreciate your help.

    before you speak T.H.I.N.K.
    T is it True? H is it Helpful? I is it Inspiring? N is it Necessary? K is it Kind?

    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

    Also the machine is spelled: Q'nique. This will help if you do other searches.

    Thank you ladies, for your help. I'm in an area where there are no dealers, so I am trying to gather all info via the Internet.

    2 of my guild friends have bought this machine. They are both quite pleased but just getting the hang of theirs. They bought it at a quilt show from the Block Rocket Co.

    I thought the leaders were awfully short and there is no bar to pin the top on. You must totally float the top. I do that alot of my HQ but not for the really big ones.

    For your budget I would be looking for a used HQ16. Fabulous support from HQ. I bought mine on Craigslist several years ago. It is one of the first models and still works great. I quilt close to 100 quilts a year on it.
