Tips for Using Your Quilting Machines
The best quilting machine for you personally will depend largely on your particular needs; commercial users usually prefer a heavy-duty model that can handle many hours of continuous operation without ‘breaking down’, whereas hobbyists may find that a lightweight (although more expensive) model is more suitable.
If, however, you will be using the machine professionally, then we recommend looking into heavier duty machines with features such as variable speed control, which allows the user to match the speed of the machine to the thread used (many quilters prefer using a variety of different threads)
If you’re planning on using your quilting machine in a home environment for fun or profit, then it’s always best to buy one that’s suited for your individual requirements – this may also save money in the long run!
