So, I've been planning my (hopefully soon) purchase of a HandiQuilter Amara. I want to spend wisely since I have a limited budget and am not financing the purchase. There are a lot of accessories and upgrades on the website. Such as:
- different tracks
- hand wheels
- different bungees and grips
- horizontal spool pin and clamp
- multiple different casters
- LED Lights/bulbs?
- precision glide wheels
- electronic channel locks
- and a lot more.
While the descriptions say what they are compatible with, they don't seem to say much about what the benefits and differences are. Is there somewhere that explains all the upgrades and parts? And is there a way to order them at the start at a discount so that you aren't ripping out brand new wheels and track, for example, just to replace them with something else?
I know, for example, that there is a different platform and tracking with the Pro-Stitcher. Is there a way to buy that to begin with as a reduced cost so that when I can purchase the program, I won't have to purchase extra upgrades and waste previous setups on my system?
What do the precision wheels do? And do I need them with electronic channel locks? With the Pro-Stitcher?
Do you need electronic channel locks if you have Pro-Stitcher? Or is that included with Pro-Stitcher? Are the tracks and wheels the same with the channel locks as with Pro-Stitcher?
I don't know what all these parts are and want to get set up well from the start without spending on two versions of something. With the pandemic, it is difficult to spend much time talking with the local rep in person, and they often don't seem to know of the multiple options on line. At least they don't have them around the store.
Any help would be appreciated.
