Hello, I've been quilting for 8 years and love it, except finish stitching in a straight line! I'm am totally ready to get a LAQ and have spent a lot of time looking at various brands and have learnt allot about the features and technology available. Hands down, the machine for me is a Millie, well if I could afford one that is! Having said that, one of the features that nobody mentioned here that really interests me was the ability to lock the wheels to do straight lines! Yes after complaining about quilting in straight lines, that is one of the features I really like about the Millie.
