After my post about people thinking I was crazy to want a TOL sewing machine, I may just prove them right because I bought it! Went to a release party for the new V series and bought the Quattro 2. Getting the machine with luggage, a laptop and PE NEXT software, $110 gift cert, 4 year warranty and servicing and didn't have to have a trade in. With tax $8300 Yeah!

I am a Quilter at heart. I love to play with fabrics, patterns and colors. Recently I have discovered I enjoy doing applique. I love making pictures. Using a sewing machine is much easier than counted cross stitch or oil painting for me. I enjoy landscape quilting as well. I am working on my first applique project in the spring of 2014.

Congratulations!

I saw the Dreamweaver and the Quattro side by side today at the quilt show.

The Dreamweaver actually does not give the impression of being that much bigger than the Quattro. I mean it is not a "startling" difference.

The Brother rep told me the Quattro 2 was actually a better deal right now with their current promotion, but normally it will be about $2000 more than the Dreamweaver. I did not get an exact price on the Dreamweaver.
