Can't help as to brand, because mine is German. But they all seem
pretty similar. If possible, find a dealer where you can try them out
for fit, to see if you have room for your legs and feet in your
favorite sewing position, and to see that the machine needle is
centered on your body. (Some of them are a bit too far to the left.)
They will all fit your machine, because you order a plastic insert cut
to your machine's dimensions. If you have more than one, you could
theoretically order inserts for each one and they would all fit.
Otherwise, my advice is to get the biggest table you have space for,
because you want every bit of table surface you can get to hold the
quilt for FMQ. Some of them have an extension that slides out on the
left to help hold the quilt. And while you're at it, get yourself one
of the XXXL cutting mats to put next to the machine -very useful! And
they all have lovely options for thread storage, etc. Mine has 3 big
drawers where I can keep all my thread, plus odds and ends such as
marking and drafting tools, needles, and SM feet.
