Question Is SWF any good

I'm looking to upgrade to a 4 head machine. Does anyone use SWF's? Just wondering if they compare to the Barudan and Tajima. We do hats, t-shirts, golf shirts, jackets, bags, etc. but my main concern is hats. I know I won't go wrong with a Barudan, but is it worth the extra money over the SWF. We are currently running 3 Rennaisance machines which are doing the job (not a great job!) but the service in Canada sucks. I hope somebody can share some of there experiences with me!

I have a single head SWF and a four head SWF too and a single head tajima. I find the tajima control panel easier to work with but i think that mainly depends on the person. To me both tajima and swf are good machines but if I had to pick between my single head tajima and swf, I would pick the tajima. The only advantage of swf is the price. Also make sure there is great tech support presense in your area for whatever machine you decide to go with.

Thanks Barb,

Is the Control panel the only thing that you think makes the tajima a better machine. Is the stitch quality on the SWF's as good as the tajima? Do hats sew out well on the SWF?

Hope more users comment on their experiences!

I've been embroidering a long time and I think 'stitch quality' has more to do with the embroidery operator. Both machines' 'stitch quality' is the same with an experienced operator. Likewise both machines can produce crappy results just as well with a novice embroiderer. I like the 'feel' of tajima machines, the control panel, and in my experience less maintenance. Also there are more qualified techs for tajimas in my experience, probably because they've been around a long time.
