    bought one frrom nancys notion when on sale. Love the way it stores in it box that it came in and doesn't take alot of room to store. I use my kitchen table that has 2 leafs in it so I have plenty of room. I saw one at a quilt show and loved it cause I can sit and work cause I can't stand so long. Also my arms are down cause I can't hold them up to the handles on the LA. I am new at it so need alot more practice of course as anyone starting out. But I am not in any way artistic so I am more comfortable marking the quilt. So far I like stippling but need to not go over the lines sometime. Also found I have a couple of rice packs that a friend made me you put in the microwave for aches and pains works great instead of the beans. I also used the warm and natural batting to learn cause It has a lower loft to it. Any way it fits what my needs are so I am happy with it. if you decide to get one I hope you enjoy it too.have fun.

    I saw this at the Paducah 2012 Quilt show. And demo'ed it. They are a pretty neat item. I don't have one, but, they take practice to use just like a long arm.

    I have one and have different sizes of the 'pvc' so I can do different sized quilts. Takes a little getting used to, but doesn't everything now-a-days. Like the fact I don't have to baste anything! I can knock out a baby quilt in no time flat. If you get one and use it you will really like it. Any questions any one might have..just give me a holler or pm. LOL

    I bought a used one from lady here on board from Oregon --never was able to get back to her.
    It was the older version -I now know but I did use it for 3 quilts. Bought longer wood pieces but still
    can not do quilt over 54 ". Set up time is long -similar to a long arm process. I did a demo at my
    quilt group and some ladies said it changed there mind because they realize they wouldn't be able to
    handle it. Concept is good. I made 2 tops ahead to do. Next time I would make 6 small tops ahead.
    Free motion is easy enough but I found doing anything more than waves is very challenging. I did not
    mark my tops with a marker because I needed to control the quilt as it was going thru the machine .
    You need lots of practise to ever do fancy. Easy to store but I left it in Fl for next season. You do
    need more room than you think because it goes left & right the full length of the frame.

    I too have one and have never used it. Guess I should get rid of it as we are moving within the next year.

    I too bought one from Nancy's when it was on sale but have never used it. Mostly because I work too much and can't quilt more than an hour at a time so didn't want it laying around in someone's way. LOL Keeping it for retirement.
