    1. Liz Leatherbarrow

      I viewed the machine at Perth Craft Show and think it is ideal for a home quilter

      Bought my HQSweet 16 sit down quilting machine 6 years ago, still enjoying the flexibility of moving the quilt about and all the wonderfull free motion patterns done on each quilt. Have done over 12 million stitches, that is a lot of quilts.
      This sit down quilting machine takes up same space as a sewing machine in a cabinet. Had been quilting on a domestic sewing machine and when HQ brought out a sit down long arm this was something that would make my quilting easier, more throat space and being able to move the quilt around easier. Lots of pleasurable fun and great quilting therapy.

      I don’t do a lot of quilting as I am still a little shy of it! Yes, practise, practise, practice and it’s true!
      Once I get into the zone, I love it!!
