I have a 11' square quilt (lone star) that needs to be quilted.  Obviously can't  do this on my Bernina as I don't want to do it in sections.  Two questions: How do I find someone local to quilt it using long arm machine and also would love to purchase a long arm machine myself (used) but need advice as to how to do this and what to look for.  Can't afford the $9,000 price tag for a new one.  I live in Cincinnati Ohio.

Hi DebbiH,

Usually, Your local quilt shop will have a reference that they can give for Longarm services. I checked the Ohio Valley's Quilters Guild and they list these as quilters for hire. Might be helpful. I'd check any dealers as close to you as possible for used machines. A lot of times they have trade in's that still come with some warranty on them so that you'll make sure you're purchasing a machine in good working order and have some support if something should fail or you need help in learning to use it.    I have posted some of the links from OVQG, hopefully one will be near you.

Whew - that is a BIG quilt.  I hope you can find someone.  I agree with Steph about the local quilt shops.  That's where I found the long arm gal that I used recently.  Won't help you much since I'm down here in Georgia.
