Wow! What an awesome product with amazing customer service! Echidna really delivers with an amazing quality product and excellent customer service and help. This machine has been a total game changer for me. Very easy to set up and the learning curve wasn't as daunting as I had anticipated. If you have the chance to purchase outright or on a payment plan, don't hesitate. Thank you Gary and team for being awesome. :)

Great Machine

Love love Love my Halo. I did have a Janome single needle machine and even though is was a great machine I wasn't happy having to change colour thread all the time. I watched all the videos of the Halo machine and after watching how easy it was to use I knew I had to have it so I bought it. So happy I did. Also the support at Echidna Sewing is second to none. So if your thinking about getting a multi-needle machine just do it, buy the Halo! You will not regret it!
