    Hello everyone!
    I'm a lurker and a reader.. love your forums and pictures! I am in the market for a long arm :lol: I am looking at a Bailey 15" one and I was wondering if anyone had one, or has any opinions on it. Thanks! I'll try to post more often. Have a great day!

    I have a Tin Lizzie and love it! I don't know anything about a Bailey.

    I have the Bailey 15" and I love it. It is a basic machine and very user-friendly. Hope you enjoy yours. MB

    I love my Gammill. Sorry I've never used a Bailey.

    I have a Bailey 15", a pcq (robotic quilting carriage) and a SuperQuilter Proflex frame - all of which I have not used as I'm kind of scared of it. I've had it all for about a year and I'm tempted to sell it since I wonder if I'll ever use it at this point... having said that, I have decided to take a long arm class after the new year so we'll see how I like it after that. The longarm class will be on the Lizzie since that's the dealer we have in town. I could not afford a Lizzie so I went with the Bailey.

    Whatever you get, I'm sure you'll like it once you use it..

    Okay. I take that back - I had bought a Voyager first and that thing is a BEAST. It is heavier than sin and was sluggish on my frame. I sold it for what I paid for it and didn't look back.

    Yarn or Fabric,
    I might be interested in your set up if you decide to sell it. I also need to take a class or try out a machine. We Alabamians don't have many chances to see these machines being demonstrated. Not many quilt shows close to us where we can try them. Darn it!!

    I just got a Tin Lizzie and Grace Pinnacle frame and the only advice I can give is be ready to practice, practice, practice. So far I have made mistake after mistake but I see progress so there is hope!!
