I know this discussione started on the TL but has anyone heard anything about the Homesteader brand ?  It comes with stitch regulator and side computer and frame for about $9899.  Just haven't found anybody who has used one.   Any body with info???

I've heard of the Nana.  There is a really good Yahoo group that covers all frames and machines they are very active. Once you join there is a lot of information

There are a couple of Yahoo groups that are really helpful, the one that I like best for this is       HomeQuiltingSystems  They have a data base used machines for sale and a large list of help files.

Your welcome Nana. I hope you will find lots of useful info on the home quilter site. I read everything I could find, for almost two years, before buying my frame and machine.  I'm happy with them but wish I could have gottne a longer arm machine. At least my frame allows me to move to a larger machine without getting a new frame.

That seems to be my problem also. What frame and machine do you have now.

Me too, I have a Brother with a 9" throat, is that the size you are using?

Spud  Yes it has 9 in throat  but it is a great machine to learn if you're really going to enjoy LAQ  without the big expense.

Wow ladies, I thought I had lost you!!  Yes, definitely I will take pictures when I can.  Some vendors do not want you taking pictures, but there are a lot of them who do.  I am soooo looking forward to going.  I just wish some of you could be here to share in the excitement.

I am really leaning toward a Tin Lizzie.  I just have to do a trial run on it before I am totally sold.  We have a dealer that is not too far away.  They offer retreats and everything.  They are about 50 miles from me, but less than a mile from my son and his family.

For those of you who live in small towns, we can drive 50 miles and never leave Houston.  What joy!!!

Anyway, I am glad I found the thread again.  Have a great day tomorrow!!

Linda Lou,

I wish we could be there to share in your excitement also. I hope you get a good chance to take the TL for a test drive. We want pictures and a TL report.  I'm going to really try to go to SLC next spring and try one out. We will see. There is a representative around here also, I should give her a call and drive over to OR and try hers out.

Anyway have a great time!!!

That is one big city  - that is like the city I grew up very close to - Rochester NY - we lived in a suburb but the towns went from one to the next - you didn't have any space in between like you do here in Oklahoma. 

I have been to Houston - my DSIL lives there - and I agree it is huge!

Have tons of fun!  I can't wait for pictures of the quilts - I know the thing about the vendors and can't blame them but I do want to see the entries - isn't there a special show going on too...

wish I was there with you - one of these years!
