    I went to pick up my FW which had been in for a tune-up.

    DH was looking at a Mega Quilter set up with stand and was asking about functions. The dealer said he had a used set up which had been traded in on an embroidery machine. The price was "reasonable" and DH turned to me and said if I wanted a quilting set up, we should buy this today. The operative word was WE!! I said YES :)

    The machine is in the house, but the stand and other components are in the back of the car. They will be unloaded tomorrow.

    I have never purchased something without doing exhaustive research. I am still in the state of shock.... So I have read the instruction book (once) and have come to the board.

    My plan is to get to know how the machine works while setting upon a regular table. Threading, bobbins, etc. I think this machine has a 9-inch throat plate opening.

    Do you have any suggestions? This is a new learning curve, but I am so blessed to have my DH and this new equipment. Thanks :)

    Probibly have a Great Machine !! Can check on here about the Pfaff Grand Quilters, had a Dealer tell me these are basically the same machine, I have the Pfaff and biggest challenge is the Tension, as you reach back to cut the thread can spin the Dial and knock the tension off (solved with a little piece of Tape!! )

    Enjoy the new to you Baby!! So much easier than no frame!!

    Congrats, Kay!!! How exciting. I would do a bunch of research on your machine and frame. I have heard good things about the Viking Mega Quilter. Use the search function above to search this forum. There is a Yahoo Group for the Viking Mega Quilter. I'm sure the members would be happy to help you out.

    First of all, "WE"? "DH" "MACHINE"; all used in the same sentence without any bad attitude? WTG.
    Second - Congrats! What a great machine. I have been looking at those!
