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.
Bought my Horn Cub about 8 years ago. It's the best thing I ever did, makes sewing so much easier and effortless. Machine is always set up and ready to go.I now want to buy a larger cabinet as I know it will be well worth every penny just for ease of use.
That's great to hear Tricia, thanks for taking the trouble to leave your feedback. I'm sure your comments will now help other to take 'the plunge'!
Firstly, excellent service from Horn. Delivered and set up in agreed time frame. Beautiful looking piece of furniture in beech. 2 issues - first the power cables etc will not remain seated in the guide holes on the trim provided (these are too wide and the trim too flimsy). Provided with clips by Horn but still not suitable, so had to devise my own solution. Second problem - My Pfaff 4.2 QE was not level on the table and so the perspex inset was not level with the sewing machine making quilting with westalee rulers a major issue. There is no horizontal adjustment for the table only vertical. Problem solved by Horn, in a very timely manner, by inserting washer/shims to raise the table front and levelling achieved. A proper sideways adjuster to accommodate non level machines should be considered by Horn. Otherwise very happy with my Maxi Outback.
Thanks for your feedback Les, we'll pass on your suggestions to the factory.
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.
My Horn Nova cabinet has just arrived and it is fantastic. The customer service from this company is second to none - everything was set up by an extremely helpful delivery drive and I have no hesitation in recommending these products to anyone.
