Welcome Kim. Congrats on the new shop. There are many good longarm machines out there but Gammil and APQS seem to be most popular with shop owners and people with home businesses. My only advice is do good research and, as with any sewing machine, get the most machine you can afford. Buy from a dealer who'll provide good customer support.
