    Yesterday I was actually able to use a Tiara to quilt a small quilt for Project Linus. It was so much fun and remarkably easy to use. It did not have a stitch regulator, so I needed a little bit of practice to get my hands and foot to work together. Once I gained enough confidence to go fast, the movements were quite easy. The quote I received for just the basic machine was around $5400. To add 2 side fold-down table tops and the super-slick table cover brought the price closer to $6000. I'm not interested in the stitch regulator, so I didn't even ask. It made quilting the top so much fun.

    I was privileged to participate with LinusLady in her trial run on the Tiara Friday. I was there to supposedly keep her from getting emotional and to keep her feet on the ground. I am afraid I wasn't much help in that regard -- I thoroughly enjoyed the time I spent on the machine, and by the end of our 2 hour session, I was encouraging her to buy the machine!

    Hi Peepers,
    I priced one today with 2 different dealers. The prices range from 5200- 5500 and it includes the adjustable expandable table.

    As far as I know, the HQ16 and the Tiara are the same machine. I have the HQ16 with TruStitch and I must say that I am doing better without the stitch regulator. I feel like a bad driver when it is engaged. lol When I got mine, I saw an advertised price on the internet but decided to go with my local dealer. They were quite willing to negotiate and I got a decent price. Win-win. I did stop by another dealer close by and she applied tons of pressure (besides being an arrogant git.) She did not get my money.

    The table comes without the sides. The extensions are extra.

    Here's the scoop- I am a quilting machine consultant at one of the largest suppliers in the country. It's not that we don't want to price machines for you, it is just that some manufacturers restrict their dealers from pricing and selling their machines over the phone or internet. They require customers to come into the store. That allows us to properly access the customer's needs and direct them to the machine that fits their needs and budget. It also allows the machines to be properly demonstrated.

    We sell 14 different brands, and there are many that don't have those restrictions. The HandiQuilter Sweet 16 is the same machine as the Tiara (made for Babylock), and it can be bought right through our phone department. It is sold with or without the stitch regulator, shipped free and also we offer financing at 0% interest. Handiquilter also makes the Avante (18" stand up model) and the Fusion (24" stand up machine).

    I'm glad to answer any questions you may have.

    I need to know if it's even feasible finance wise before looking.

    Concept is interesting since it's in it's own table and made for a small work area.
