    Hi from North Carolina

    I am new to the quilting board and also new to long arm quilting. I am ordering my first longarm now. I grew up around q quilter. My grandmother made many quilts on a frame that my grandfather made for her. All of her quilts were machine pieced but totally hand quilted. I proudly have several. I currently have four tops made and one almost finished just waiting for this to arrive. I have a question I hope can be answered to help me get ready for this. How much room around the frame do I need. The frame is 10' and is a Inspira Iquilt with an 18x8 Mega Quilter. It does have the rear handles too. Thanks in advance, Gail

    Welcome from OHIO! I have a mid-arm mega quilter on the Inspira frame and for that I need enough room to comfortably get all the way around the frame. It may be different for a long arm, and if so, someone on here will let you know.
    Being a great quilter is 5% talent and 95% pushing yourself away from the internet!

    Thanks - I kind of think it will be the same with a long arm. Looking forward to learning this method and so looking forward to all the great info on this site.
