    As I am getting a little closer to getting my longarm, I'm beginning to realize the value of a dollar. I am getting a little scared about spending so much money on something that I don't know if I'm going to like or not. I know I'll probably love it and want to spend all my time "playing" with it. But, still, it is a lot of money. I don't have any place close by that lets you rent a machine. And, I don't know anyone close to me that has one that I could practice on. I just have my one 10 minute experience at a quilt show on the Nolte. So, please. Somebody help me out here and tell me how much I'm going to love it!!!

    Sorry, but if there is the slightest doubt or feelings of guilt, I would wait.

    You are going to love it. You just need to line up some resources to troubleshoot the bugs/issues you encounter early on and expect there to be a learning curve. Get some good advice about which machine best fits what you want. As it is such a big investment, perhaps you should set aside some time and money to travel to a place where you can try out a few different machines. A quilting vacation.

    I promise you'll love it! I honestly can't imagine any other way of quilting other than on the longarm. I can crank 'em out one after another. Have fun with it!

    ditto, you should be totally confident with your purchase or else wait until it does feel right

    hubs nudged me into mine. He asked "if not now, when? Just do it". I'm so glad he did.
