    Amn't sure if you mean 1000 dollars or pounds? The HQV quilt range come in around 1000 range though I've no idea whatsoever about how our prices compare with US. Good luck in finding the right machine.

    If I were to purchase another machine for quilting I would be purchasing a Juki. The ones I looked at have large harps and after sewing on vintage machines, I realize that I mostly use a straight stitch. Their owners love them, easy to maintain, just a little oil and love. I think they are well within your price.

    Juki TL2010q...I love mine! I bought it almost 2 years ago sight unseen after reading reviews. It's been perfect right out of the box. Not fussy about thread and I never have to mess with the tension. The throat is 9" and it's got a taller opening, so you can really fit a larger quilt in it.

    I second for the Juki. I didn't sold it after I got my longarm and frame because I still prefer it for small quilt and micro stippling.

    You really don't need a large throat to quilt a Queen size quilt. I don't do large ones anymore but it is just a matter of making sure your quilt has a support. I quilted all my prize winning quilts with my Bernina 1530.

    Juki is a wonderful machine. I have had mine since 2007.

    straight stitch juki or brother would be your best option in that price range
