    Yes! That is why I chose the Juki.

    This is the machine I have and love it. I think this is the one Leah Day uses also.

    Have you thought about saving 1000 dollars and just buying the foot for your current machine? I recommend using the machine you already have and by using that machine you will figure out quickly what you like and what can be improved upon. And then your 1000 dollars toward a different machine will be exactly what you want.
    Blogging ahead.....research in quilting and sewing with a dab of cooking/recipes too.

    I have found that I'm a quilt top maker too. I've finished two quilts tops that are in my closet. Now, I don't even like the first one I made with Downton Abbey fabrics. They are too pale. I'm into vibrant colors now. See what happens as you age?

    I just read a blurb on Craftsy telling how you can cover the feed dogs on any machine so you can FMQ. They covered the dogs with plastic. Just an idea if you really love your older machine.
