Just noted that the QD Mk2 does not take the Bernina 700 range, I had been repeatedly looking at this and at my local supplier's with a plan to get it before long and it looks like it will be no good as my 790 will not allow the fully levelled top to go into place. 🙁
Hi Dilly, I have good news! The lifter in the QD MK2 has now been modified so that it can take the Bernina 700 Range (7 Series). The lifter now has a deeper drop that allows you to put in the filler piece above it like other sewing machines.
I am self employed and have a very small business making quilts and this year decided on the leap of faith and a new sewing machine and cabinet. I spent 12 months deciding on the sewing machine and with help from Phil at White Rose Sewing in Harrogate I decided on the Quilters Delight horn cabinet.The table was delivered and set up by Jeff from Horn Cabinets and it is indeed *A Quilter's Delight* The large workspace to the left of the machine makes quilting the larger quilts so much easier and the extra lift up space at the right of the machine is the ideal place to put the pot of quilting pins to be added to as the quilting progressesThe three drawer storage unit is the ideal place to keep all the sewing machine accessories and scissors and the pattern I am working on.I have tried the table out with the machine stowed away and the table then becomes a lovely space to pin the layers of a quilt together and also to put the cutting mat on top an cut up the fabric ready to patchwork.I am very pleased with my purchase, the service from Horn delivering and setting the table up for me.Excellent table Excellent service and very deserving of 5 stars recommendation
Thanks for your kind and helpful feedback Valerie, I'm sure it will help others with their decision.
This table really lives up to its name. I was struggling to machine quilt a single size quilt top and had all sorts of props to try and take up the weight of the quilt, which was awkward and frustrating.After purchasing the cabinet it arrived within 10 days of ordering. the driver was brilliant so helpful showing us each section of the table it seemed a huge item for one person but he clearly new his products and had it set up in no time. Mine did arrive with the wrong insert for my machine but this did not over shadow the joy of the table and the driver rang the office to have one delivered by courier. I still managed to complete my quilt with ease without it. The driver had set it up so when the insert arrived I could just put it straight in position, so I covered the back with my quilting ruler thus giving me a flat working area.Despite the mix up I have still given the table 5 well deserved stars it is well made very versatile brilliant and a must for all quilters.Horn employees and office have been so approachable and helpful and I would have no hesitation in recommending this product and company to any quilter.Thank you Horn for your help and support in choosing a product to suit my needs.
I just wanted to say thank you very much for the excellent customer service. I needed a slight adjustment to the spacing of the insert to fit my machine and was sent a new insert with in a couple of days of my request. The table is just as described - a quilters delight. Many thanks for the prompt no-quibble service.
This looks good . I shall think about owning one in the new year.
This sewing cabinet is indeed a dream. Just perfect for quilting.I have a Bernina 750 and a Pfaff Creative Performance taking it in turns to be used in this.
Delivery was a bit of a nightmare though, as I live in the far north of Scotland, out of the free delivery area, which meant the delivery was contracted out. My cabinet had been loaded onto the delivery van by forklift truck, in Inverness, then when delivered to me, had to be unpacked on the delivery van, and carried up our driveway by myself, husband and delivery driver. Worth it though, as it's just what I wanted.
Dear Eileen, thanks for taking the time and trouble to leave us your valuable feedback.
We feel that it should be noted that whilst the Bernina 7 Series (710, 750, 780) will fit into the QD2 for sewing, quilting use etc.... due to the machines overall height and once its pushed into the storage position the filler piece (the part that fills in the hole above the machine to make it into a cutting/ work surface) can't be fitted into place as it hits on the bobbin winder of the machine. This issue only applies to the QD2 and the Bernina 7 Series and not other sewing machines or cabinets in our range fitted with the maxi lifter.
