    Look what I found on Craigslist (for 1/3 the price of a new one BTW). My Juki now has a big sister!

    I think I'll call her (Big) Bertha! I've set her up as a sit-down model since I don't have a frame or really have room for one either. She did come with wheels as well as front and rear handles, so a frame is a possibility later if I decide I want it, but right now it seems like Heaven to have so much harp space for the big quilts I'm working on finishing before Christmas. The last one I finished on my Juki was a queen-size with a double layer of batting for my granddaughter.

    I only did about a 30 second "try-out" with her, and decided she HAD to come home with me; now it's time to get busy!

    Any HQ Sixteen tips anyone has for me will be much appreciated as I work on getting to know her!

    "Bertha" next to my Juki (who will never be left out, just promoted to piecing and small project FMQ).

    Thank you! From my first sessions with her, I think the transition from the Juki to her will be fairly easy; they both "handle" similarly.

    Wow!! What a fantastic buy!! I would love to have that harp space.
    Your quilting has been fabulous before, I can't image what it'll be like now.
