"I had been longarm quilting for 3 years before I decided to try computerized quilting. I was using another brand of machine at the time but after comparing systems opted to change and go with the HQ Pro-Stitcher and the Handi Quilter Fusion. I couldn't be happier, like a kid in a candy shop! I was always frustrated that my free-hand patterns never came out the same, but my quilting is almost perfect now!" - MaryAnn Blackham
