I have had my Mellenium for 3-4 years now and I was at a girl friends house this weekend for a retreat and she let me use her HQ16. OMG! it was like driving a ford escort after years of driving a porche 944. I sang the praises to my husband for going the extra mile on the money end. My quilting bekons to me every day and I would not enjoy it at all if i had to go to that machine. So keep up the great work and I just love my new bliss rails, they were well worth the money too.
