Who doesn't want a long-arm?
But have you seen the price tag on those things?
I need some help.
I've always wanted a long-arm quilting machine
but never let the thought go much farther than that.
They're expensive and take up a lot of space.
But you know what? I've done some hard thinking
over the last few weeks and I'm pretty sure it's time
to take the big leap. The kids are getting older,
and I'm getting more serious about quilting.
This set-up is $2600...too little?
Now, sure I'd love a great dreamy machine
but I'm a little more practical than that.
Where do you start with a "first quilting machine"?
And let's leave out the dreamy ones;
let's say you have a cap of $5K
and would really love to do half that.
Anyone have one they love?
What do you look for?
(Ok, I was going to put a bunch of different machines
in this post but, frankly, I just don't know where to start!)
Used ones seem to be hard to find,
and I think I want the support
that comes with a new one.
DH would like me to find a basic but
nice machine and then later get the frame.
And I'm sure I want a metal frame.
And hey, maybe I'll want the computer
add-on in a few years?
