A Singer FW is a joy to use. I use mine when away from home,as it is a
convenient and reliable portable. I prefer to use it for piecing, not
quilting. It would be fine for a small placemat or such, but I find it
rather slow for a larger quilt. Since my Pfaff is much quicker and has a
built in dual feed, that is my choice for quilting. HTH. NAYY.
