"My Statler was upgraded to the Ascend Statler about two months ago. I noticed right from the start that I could run the machine at an even faster speed on my edge-to-edge patterns and with great ease. It's hard to describe it exactly but it feels even more stable than my Statler was before. Recently, I have digitized some of my more intricate freehand patterns from my show quilts. I found a quilt that was perfectly suited to these patterns using a contrasting thread and was completely surprised and delighted at how fast the Ascend Statler stitched them and with the most amazing accuracy. Now I can get my quilts done faster I don't have to worry that my quilting and patterns are a little more intricate and dense than everyone else's. I am still living my dream! Cheers and happy quilting!" -Linda V Taylor
"The Ascend system allows me to stitch detailed fill patterns faster, saving me both time and money." -Christine Perrigo
"The Ascend in a nutshell is speed without sacrificing accuracy or quality. We can catch up quicker after downtime from illness, holiday, or just a larger than average workload (we experienced this first hand with Covid. Our turnaround was at about 8 weeks at one point and we got it back down to 2-3 weeks, which is normal for us.) We can fit in last minute rush work such as quick gifts, charity quilts, etc. more easily. All in all we have seen an increase of about 35%. For example, we had a 2 quilt/day average and now we are at 3 quilts/day average." -Sharon Blackmore
"I love the Ascend because it allows me to quilt the more intricate edge-to-edge designs much more efficiently without sacrificing the accuracy of the design. Most impressive to me is the ability of the machine to "backtrack" precisely at a much greater speed." -Eva Birch
