    Babylock Ellisimo. Just got it this summer and am so impressed and in love with this machine! Have been a Janome fan for years but couldn't get past all the wonderful features on this machine that the comparable Janome couldn't touch! (Think Janomes are built much sturdier but they really dropped the ball in keeping up with the competition on embroidery machines!)

    I piece mostly on my Brother 1500S and quilt on a Fusion. Fancy stitches I use a Pfaff 7570 because it has so many stitches.

    Is that in a foot treadle? How cool...do you get a workout or is it low impact?

    I love my Husqvarna Viking 870. I want my grandmother's RedEye treadle. Maybe someday soon my brother will bring it home from Fl.

    I did use a janome for piecing but it quit tonight. My husband has informed me that a sewing machine is a luxury so I am not going to be quilting for awhile.

    I have a Pfaff Creative 1471 that I bought new in 1986 and would not part with it for the world, a real workhorse. Also have a Brother sewing and embrodiery machine that intimidates me, bought it used so no lessons, haven't mastered it yet.

    Did you inform him that eating is a luxury and he won't be getting that for a while?

    I love my new Janome Horizon 7700. I use it for piecing and free motion quilting. I have also put it on my quilting frame for a couple of quilts and it's quite the performer!
    I still use my Janome QC6260 for workhorse jobs (denim) and to take to classes.

    I was thinking more along the lines of clean underwear being a luxury too.

    I piece on my bernina 630 and just recently acquired FW. I FMQ on my HQ16-sit down version. Love all of my machines. Can't imagine quilting without them. :-)

    Food is the one thing he never gripes about spending money on. He thinks making quilts is a waste of time.
