I have a chance to get a slightly used BSR for a good price, and I am

in a quandry. I did not get one when I bought my 430 because of cost,

and I have the Janome MC6600P which has the AcuFeed Feet, which I love.

Can I have a few pros and cons of the BSR system, please?

I think the BSR is wonderful for very slow, intricate work. For

regular quilting, I'd much rather quilt without it.

Thank you CJ ... are you talking about applique and piecing?

No, quilting. I don't think I could do applique with the BSR foot,

and you definitely can't piece with it, it's a free motion foot.

Tiny, intricate quilting (micro stippling, mctavishing, etc) are

nicely done with the BSR foot, I tend to have a harder time

controlling my stitches going slow. But I find the BSR a hindrance

for faster, easier quilting, large loopy designs, meandering, etc.

Well, since I don't stipple and only do straight line quilting, or

quilt as you go, I'm not sure the BSR would be of any use to me.

I think it has to do with being able to stitch faster without bsr.. think of bsr for some as being training wheels on a bike.. you learn how to quilt with more precision, to not rush in a way.. you will have more even stitches and.get a sense of how to do this and then perhaps be able to stitch without bsr without the long or uneven stitches.. or at least this is my experience:-)

If that's how you quilt, the BSR is of no use to you at all. The

walking foot is all you need.

I *love* my BSR. I tried for years to get my stitches even -- without

success. The BSR has solved that problem for me, and I'm really glad

I have it. That's not to say that someday I might finally be able to

do free motion without the BSR, but right now -- after ten years of

trying -- it doesn't happen very often. G>

-Great looking quilt Sandy. Wish I could do free motion that well. I

am still experimenting. I am hoping the BSR helps me. I have just

had my 730E foe two weeks now.

Thanks, Paula. :) I've been very fortunate in having lessons from some

very talented quilters, and I've practiced a lot. I really do think

that the BSR has helped me; I was very discouraged before getting it.
