    We brought home my new Laura Ashley NX-2000 today!! :-)

    I love my new sewing machine! I've been getting familiar with it since suppertime and it is amazing! My husband couldn't hear it running from three feet away! It's like whisper mode! Amazing! It sews like a dream, even with the fancy stitches. I also like that thread cutting mode because I think it's going to save a lot of thread for me over time. So far, I have not found anything I don't like on it! I wound a bobbin so I could work with it and it liked to scare me out of five years growth when it took off on its own!

    Well, I can't keep my eyes open any longer, but I had to share my excitement and tell you how amazing this machine is!! I love it!! I had saved over half the money for it, so my DH put in the rest so I could get it for Christmas! Isn't he sweet? After 40 yrs together, I wouldn't trade him for anything!! Good night all, going to go dream about all the super quilts I'm going to make with this machine! :-)

    CONGRATS! Have fun! It's hard to wipe that smile off your face isn't it?! You'll be grinning in your sleep!
    Was it worth the wait?

    Oh yes it was!! I love it! I'm SO thrilled with it! It's like it sews in "whisper mode". Joe couldn't hear it sewing less than 3 feet away from me! :-) He said the only way he knew I was sewing was because he saw the flywheel turning on the end!

    I was reading about all those Brother machines last night. Why did you decide on that particular model? I am still in comparison mode. Thank you.

    I don't do embroidery and don't care for the machines you have to keep changing back and forth.

    Do a google search on the Brother website. It's a Laura Ashley limited edition, Innov-is, NX-2000. It is a table top machine. Not a long-arm, but has a nice size arm for me to quilt larger quilts on at home. It was designed specifically for quilters & comes with everything, 17 feet including the walking foot, darning foot for free motion, way more others than I recognize yet, the large extension table comes with it, and a plastic dust cover. It is the quietest machine I've ever run and by far the most impressive!! So glad I chose this one! I got it at my local Brother Dealership. I can get classes on it too if I choose to, so I can use it to the maximum which I intend to do eventually! :-)

    I know you will have sweet dreams. Instead of sugar plums dancing in your head, it will be fat quarters, batiks and rotary cutters! Enjoy your new toy!

    Ah, come on, Becky.... Wouldn't you trade a 40 year old model (your DH) for a new longarm, even? NO? Ok! Enjoy your new toy. I'm waiting to see what you do with it.

    Sorry Sierra, no trading in my guy. I'm trying to perfect my FMQ on the home machine and have no room for a long-arm anyway!:-)

    Boy, that machine looks almost exactly like my Babylock Espire--the difference being my Espire is more squared off and the Brother is rounded on the edges. The placement of all the controls and the screen are identical, throat space and extension table identical. These must be the same machine. Are Babylock and Brother the same company?

    I am actually pretty sour on my machine for a number of reasons but the current one is the lack of a good 1/4 foot. I am actually using my old Janome machine right now to use the 1/4 foot as it works like a dream. I am in the middle of my Ohmigosh quilt and making 216 3 strip sets where each strip in only 1 inch wide so I really need a precise 1/4 seam. The 1/4 foot that does come with the Babylock doesn't work well at all as it positions the fabric over the feed dogs such that it doesn't cover the right feed dog so the fabic wants to vere off to the left and you have to fight it to keep it to the right against the foot egde piece. I would love to hear if you have a better 1/4 foot. I asked my dealer about if there was a better foot that would work on the Babylock and they were pretty clueless.
