We have four children --- a senior in college, a sophomore in college, an eighth grader and a fourth grader. Since we find ourselves driving around the state to various school activities and sporting events, we take advantage of the drive by visiting quilt shops and shows. Luckily, my husband is very supportive in that he has always encouraged me to buy more fabric and quilting toys.
I had bought a computerized quilting system back in 2003 and in the fall of 2008, when I saw the HQ Sixteen with the HQ Pro-Stitcher at the Des Moines AQS show, I fell in love with it. Right away, my husband encouraged me to get it and I am so glad I listened to him. I couldn’t be more pleased with my purchase. The machine itself sews beautifully. The HQ Pro-Stitcher is very flexible and easy to use. And, the service is second to none. I would highly recommend this machine to anyone who is interested in purchasing a computerized long arm system.
At this point, I am pretty comfortable the computerized quilting functionality and I am looking forward to taking additional free motion classes at the upcoming AQS show in Des Moines. Someday, when I retire, I expect to have more time to practice free motion. And, I am confident the quality of the HQ Sixteen will provide many happy years of quilting for us!
I own the following HQ machines:
