I have been a seamstress for over 40 years and this was my first Husqvarna sewing machine purchase. I design and sew handbags and I was assured that it would stand up to heavy sewing. When you use heavier fabrics, the machine starts knocking or when you have sewn with it over a couple of hours it starts knocking. If you use many layers, the machine posts a sign that says the foot is too high and even dropping the plate doesn't make it work. I've had it for 6 weeks and its already been in the shop for repairs (timing was out due to using it on heavier fabrics). Threads continuously break in the eye of the needle. If I were a beginner quilter then this machine might work (but I wouldn't trust it). The saleslady that sold me the machine assured me that it would stand up to heavier sewing. In her demonstration she even pulled out some layers of fabric to show me the ease of sewing but of course her machine was not used for a lot of sewing. Stay away from Husqvarna Tribute 140C and especially if you do a lot of sewing!
