Do any of you quilters use this machine, or have given it a test drive? I'm thinking of buying one this summer while I'm in the US and want to have some opinions by experts before I sit down and sew with it. I looked in the sewing machine section and there were no reviews at all and that is why I'm invading your message board.
Thanks in advance for your time!

Last Fall I briefly tested the 8900 at a regional quilt show, and was disappointed with how crinkly the straight stitching made the fabric; i.e., the tension was off. At the same show, the Bernina 710 performed flawlessly and was several hundred dollars less expensive. Sewing time on each machine was less than 30 minutes, so I would not base your decisions on my limited exposure to those machines. Just relating my eperiences . . .

Take a peek at the "Sewing Machine" board (lower on the list than this quilting board), where you'll find a 10-page discussion thread of this machine.
