    Stitch Regulators

    I'm thinking of buying a new machine with a stitch regulator. I've been quilting on my Brother, but my stitches are never even.
    Tried googling for stitch regulator machines and it gave me all sorts of sewing machines with no stitch regulators. Does anyone know if you can buy these machines now for under $1000?

    Try this link:

    Talk to a dealer and see if they can give you a deal on a used Bernina.

    Looks like just the foot is $1000!

      Some stitch regulators for sit down machines or regular sewing machines are awkward. I know the one Babylock has is really awkward to use. But I have heard good things about the Bernina stitch regulator.

        I tested a Bernina 770 with stitch regulator and I didn’t like it at all. Please test the machine and the regulator before you make this decision, I couldn’t understand why people are making a fuss about it, but this is very much personal preference

          I'm of the same opinion as Auntie Uli. I had a Bernina 7 series machine with a stitch regulator and I found it distracting. I ended up not using it. (Don't have the Bernina anymore either.) Do try it first...it may very well be your "cup of tea" but if it's not......it's a financial outlay you may not want to make.

            I have a Bernina with a stitch regulator. I do find it helps but it is not a total solution. You still need to try to keep a steady even flow or your stitches will still not be the same length. But it does help some.

              I would recommend test driving one. I was pretty comfortable with FMQ and my stitch length but my friend got a Bernina with a stitch regulator. I tried sewing on it and it was very distracting for me and I didn't like it. My friend loves it but it was the first machine she FMQ on so she just got used to it.

                I didn't buy the stitch regulator for the Sweet 16. It looked awkward to use, and the dealer wasn't encouraging us to add this feature. I still don't have stitch length perfected and probably never will, so I guess I can live with this. I think if I had a standing LA itwould be standard.

                Enjoy life and do what makes you happy. Everything else will follow.

                Every day I try to do one thing that challenges my comfort zone.

                  Thanks Suzanne. I bought Juki sit down that doesn't have a stitch regulator and I am OK with it. It would be nice to have perfectly even stitches but mine are getting better and better with practice.
                  Since I ripped some out recently I am glad they were a bit long.

                    I found that stitch regulation was not needed as long as you have a variable speed foot control. That helped me tremendously as the speed on a reg one is either full throttle or stop. I hope this helps.
