I just bought a used INNOVA and LOVE LOVE LOVE it! It has lightning stitch and is a dream to use. It was used, but still under warranty, which was a bonus. The Innova dealer in Tampa, FL was very helpful - but I didn't really ask a lot of questions. I transported the machine from VA Beach and put it together myself. I was intimidated at first, but stitching away now! Had not heard of INNOVA until I went to the Jacksonville Quilt Fest last year. It just felt 'so right' in my hands and even my son and daughter-in-law commented on how nice the stitching looked compared to some of the other brands. You really need to test them out to see which one feels right for you. Good luck!
