  1. Issues with Baby Lock Grace A-line series

    Posted by Unknown on 22nd Nov 2010

    I bought a Grace A-Line series machine seven months ago after looking for a machine that could hold up to sewing quilted handbags and machine quilting flannel quilts. The salesperson's demonstration using five thicknesses of heavy denim convinced me that this machine would hold up to my handbag and quilting projects and for the most part, it has. I like the ease of use and selection of stitches. However, there are many issues I do not like. The machine's light is barely adequate, even with bright lighting. The off-center needle position is awkward and moving the needle to the alternate center position throws off the feed-dogs. Having five feed-dogs can be too many at times, especially when sewing narrow seams, as they tend to pull the fabric askew and I have to fight to keep the fabric feeding correctly. The seam guideline measurements are placed awkwardly behind the pressure foot and do extend to the front (except for the 1/4" and 5/8" marks), making it difficult to follow them. I also have to be careful guiding bulky items through the machine's arm opening and make sure I do not accidentally brush against the stitch selection wheel, which does not lock into a setting. Rubbing against the wheel can change the stitch selection while you are sewing, with unwanted consequences. This machine has lived up to being powerful enough for heavy-duty projects, but I would strongly suggest taking fabric to try it out thoroughly in the store before purchasing one.
