    I bought the Quest Plus yesterday and it's wonderful. I spent several hours at the dealers and tried the stitches that are important to me: the buttonholes, hems, 1/4" piecing etc. I even tried free motion for the first time. Only drawbacks so far are too many stitches have a default of 2 and for basting a 6 would have been nice. I have the automatic cutter on a Viking and I don't care for it. It leaves a noticeable (to me) knot.

    Hi,

    Congratulations :) It's like having a new baby, isn't? LOL

    I suspect that if you use something quite a bit there's has to be a way to commit it to memory. I know there are only 6 or 8 (forgot) memory banks, but I've learn one thing is that there is always a way around things :P The stitches are so many that I still haven't gone through all of them. I plan on doing them all one by one, grouped by foot, on a piece of fabric to make sure I'm not missing anything.

    I'm still discovering my machine. I have another 2 hours at the dealer's coming up to fiddle with all the goodies.

    After comparing the Quest & quest Plus at Babylock.com, I noticed that some of the decorative stitches changed or were added. There are a few children animal designs on the plus.. ducks etc. The Singer L500 is basically the same as the Quest. I love my Singer L500
