    I am able to purchase a Viking Mega Quilter, the whole thing, machine, frame, software, etc., for a really neat price. It is brand new, in a dealer's showroom, and it was just set up. Classes come with it. Does anyone have this entire package? I already own the Mega Quilter machine, so I would end up with "two" of them, one connected to the quilting frame, and the one I have sitting here in my sewing room, but I am not concerned about that at all. I just want to know if anyone else has this Viking Mega Quilter, frame, software and all, and what you think of it. Thanks loads...I appreciate any comments as this is very important to me.

    I just went to the top of this page and clicked on "Search" and typed in Viking Mega Quilter and it looks like a whole bunch of posts popped up - just do the same and start clicking and surely you will find out what you need to know.

    Hope this helps - HTH

    It sounds like a really good idea to me, since you already have a Viking, it will be easy for you to learn.

    Unless it's the Viking MegaQuilter 18.8, you would technically be purchasing a midarm and not a longarm. I currently have the Pfaff 9" setup, which is identical to the Viking. I found the 9" throat space to be too small and I am currently awaiting delivery of a used Tin Lizzie 18. I will be selling my Pfaff setup, once the Tin Lizzie arrives.

    I'm not certain what software you would be getting, unless you are purchasing the quilting robot, either Qbot or QuiltClever. I have the Qbot and will be transferring it to my "new to me" Tin Lizzie. If it's the 4D Qbot software, it's still usable. But it's already obsolete and will cost you aprox. $150 to upgrade to the newer 4D Quilt Design Creator software. Also, check that the Qbot itself is already upgraded to version 2.07 or higher. Otherwise, it'll be another $100 or more to upgrade that to the latest version, which adds some nice new functionality.
