I am going to fulfill a long-held dream this year and somehow – by the Law of Attraction- going to get my hands on a Long Arm Quilting Machine. I have made dozens of quilts on my Husqvarna, by cramming them through the throat, with all the pulling and shoving, but I saw a DVD of Karen McTavish doing her McTavishing quilt stitch on a Long Arm, and I can barely believe how wonderful that machine is! I know that some industrial strength types go for 17K +, and that is way out of my ballpark, and I see the frames that let you put your home machine sideways to quilt, but that isn’t what I want. I want the machine that does a jillion stitches a minute, and that can work at that speed!
Now, my question is, do any of you ladies and gentlemen have opinions about the longarms? Any experience with the machines? I have tried to look on the websites, but the information is confusing unless you already know the exact brand you are looking for.
I would appreciate any ideas, and thank you ahead of time for your help!
