    Looking for a new quilting machine

    So I have been looking for a non embroidery quilting machine and just wanted to pick some brains on what ya'll are using.
    I currently have a Baby Lock Ellure Plus and a Baby Lock Serger. I find my self having a hard time with the limited throat space on my Ellure, and am looking into getting something bigger. I would love to have a mondo long arm with the huge frame/table, but I would rather have something that I can keep in my sewing room.

    It seems to be hard to find a non embroidery machine. My Baby Lock does all that!

    There are so many machines these days so any recommendations or places to start are appreciated!

    I just got a Babylock Crescendo, and it is amazing!

      Many people recommend the Juki 2010Q . It is a straight stitch only machine, but has a large throat space and does well with FMQ. Since you have the bells and whistles with your babylocks, this might be the kind of machine you want to look into getting. Several of our forum members have this machine and hopefully they will jump in with some more information for you.

      Before you speak,
      T - is it TRUE?
      H - is it HELPFUL?
      I - is it INSPIRING?
      N - is it NECESSARY?
      K - is it KIND?

        no idea what your price range is, but I have a Brother Dream Creator. Has an 11 1/4" throat space and lots of bells and whistles.
        It is in the $3k to $4k price range though. No embroidery on this one.

          Just purchased the Juki 2010Q and absolutely love it! Previously had the Horizon (Janome) and got tired of this jamming and blowing up. The Juki has no whistles and bells, just sews super fast - love it!

            Another Juki owner here. Straight stitch only but does great quality quilting. Here's the blog I read before I decided: Know Thy Machine ? Juki 2010Q ยป Pile O Fabric and here's one from a year ago: Stitched in Color: the story of my Juki

            And here are the specs: TL-2010Q Extended Bed

            Best of all it's affordable (expect to pay no more than $1,000 ~ less on sale!)

              I've been very satisfied with my H. Viking Opal 670. (See videos on YouTube) Retail was $799, & I got a trade-in for my older machine. JCY

                I have a Juki 98E. Love, love LOVE it! It's straight stitch only, but if I ever need a zigzag (haven't yet) I can turn to my trusty old Bernina 930. The 98E is no longer available new, but I'm betting the new Jukis are just as good, if not better. I know they added automatic threading to the later models. I once had my Juki on a small Grace frame, but no longer have room in my tiny retirement house for even that small of a frame. So, it's just tabletop now - and it still works great for both piecing and quilting.

                  Great thanks everyone! I am looking all of those up right now! I think that with as much as I would use it and as invested as I am in my lifetime hobby I would be willing to spend a few thousand if needed. Thanks!
