  • Long arms, any recommendations?

    I have been making quilts for a while now. I got the crazy idea that I want to buy a long arm set up that has the ability to quilt on its on. After looking at a few online, I was floored by the price!! My question, does anyone have any thoughts or opinions on the best options for a little old lady on...

  • Re: Did You Work on a Quilt Today? #7

    I bought a slew of long arm rulers at the Mid Atlantic quilt festival last weekend, and I was soooo looking forward to using them today. The ruler hopper foot came but when I put it on today it's the wrong foot! The foot hits the screw on the needle bar. Waaaa Haaaa Haaaa I've got one of Thea's...

    Here's my 2 cents, for what it's worth. I love pantographs! I use both pantographs and rulers together in quilts, depending on the design of the quilt. I use a laser light to follow the panto, and use the rulers to do custom work on the borders. I have the Tin Lizzie Ansley 26 on a king size...

    Two years ago, I bought my HQ18 Avante. Yes, I would buy it again! I have it set up at 12 ft, it takes up most of my basement. I do not have the ProStitcher.

  • Buying a longarm (HandiQuilter HQ Pro Stitcher)

    Yesterday was the 3rd time I went to look at the Handi Quilter setup (HQ18 Avante and 10ft frame). 16K ! (yikes - that is a car payment). But I'm getting more and more serious about the purchase. Anyone familiar with a recent long arm purchase or this machine? I'm looking into the computer generated...
