Do any of you use the Singer Quantum Stylist sewing machine? I am thinking about upgrading to it. It looks like a great machine and has all the major features I am looking for at this point...plus more. Just wondering if anybody here uses it for their quilting?

Nancy my local dealer does sell the Janome Magnolia 7330 for the same price as online. But I left there yesterday really feeling like that would be the last place I would want to purchase a machine. I will take it there for service since they are the only show in town.

I do most of my piecing on a 1949 Singer Featherweight I got on ebay.  The reason is machine maintenance.  I can easily access what I need to oil or grease and I can easily take care of any lint that accumulates around the bobbin or the feed dogs.  It is all accessible and I can do it myself.  I have dealt with enough of the used car salesman  "well looky here, little lady......it's too old so we need to sell you a new one of those $5000 machines" type.  One of the ladies in my normal BOM classes said "you know they do sell more modern machines than that" and I explained to her I have more modern machines in my house and they don't stitch as nicely as my featherweight and they aren't as quiet as a featherweight.  My boys call the featherweight my "stealth" machine because they can't hear me sewing from the other end of the house.  Mostly, though, I just really don't like dealing with the smug repairmen around my area.  I sew too much to go the year between maintenance calls and I know I am a lint queen with my projects....I don't need a repairman to tell me what I already know and then charge me $90 a visit on top of that.  For less than 3 repair visits, I can own another featherweight.
