    I think I will call her Sassy. That is a good name. So far I have been trying all the different stitches and using the blanket stitch to sew on the appliques on the Back on the Farm blocks. I have also been working on the back of my Rapid Fire Hunter's Star.

    Sassy looks just like mine. Mine has no name yet. Gotta just love that thread cutter. I even love the knee lift. Getting a bit more coordinated with it. What a time saver. Sews great, beautful blanket stitch. It does not like bulky seams though. Going over flying geese points on outside edge, it seems to bog down and takes tiny tiny stitches. Have to pull material threw which I don't like to do.
    I still love it though. Should be last machine I ever need.

    Your red "Sassy" is a fabulous machine! Have fun sewing with her & let us know what you make with her!

    The knee lift is great becuz it is adjustable. I could not reach the knee lift in my 6500 so my husband had to bend it so my knee could touch it. I love the thread cutter too. My only problem with it is that I can't seem to find the same blanket stitch size that I had with my other machine. I am sure I will get used to it.

    I have a Bernina 430QE. I am actually been thinking about trading it in on something new. This might be what I would be looking for.

    Yes I owned the 6500 Janome but I sold it to buy the Horizon. It was an excellent machine too and I put a lot of miles on it.

    Hi,

    I am a newbie so pardon my question.
    I was wondering .Would a group of quilters ever join together to buy an expensive quilting machine,insure it,and take turns using it . This may sound too far fetched but It seems like a reasonable idea to me. Well, as long as all the participating quilters all get along . What do You all think ?
