    I truly appreciate you taking the time to help me with this. I will forward this information to my buyer in hopes she doesn't want to return it. This takes a big load of my mind so now I can go and create something.

    Again, sincerely thanks

I used a piece of tape to mark it so I have no problems with it hitting the quilting foot. Then I put my quilt or project on it and go to town. They have some square things that look like just a square that you can put on top of the project so it keeps it from bunching and the like. I saw them at our Sew & Vac store and they did have FUM there too. Mine is the Inspia fabu motion and paid $50.00 for it. I love it. I know I'll never be able to afford a long arm. Grrr...

    I had a long arm quilter when a Viking sales person talked me into buying a Fab U Motion for "just in case your long arm breaks" and that is the reason I have it and have never even taken it out of the box for 3 years. I really should sale it but I don't remember how much I paid for it. Am I an easy sale or what?

    I did get the information I needed to forward to my buyer. I'm hoping she is happy with my information. As for the price...I paid 900 plus tax about 3 years ago. I see they have now cut the price in half. I should have waited three years, but oh well. I now have a kind of entry level quilt frame and mid-arm machine. I like the idea of moving the machine and not the fabric. I have only had this combo for a little over two months. Just taking baby steps at this point. But to your thoughts on what to sell it for, since the price has been cut in half, $400 to $500 is reasonable especially since they are extremely difficult to find right now.

    BTW, if you don't have the stitch regulator, probably wouldn't sell for more than $150 to $200.

    I appreciate the information and will consider it.

    I was thinking, if your buyer would like the accessory for the fab u motion, she could probably go to ebay or on line and fine it. I wish you luck and hope she does not want her money back. That would really be a bummer.

    I love your albino peacock. I have a machine embroidery design that is a white peacock. It doesn't have fancy stitches but it is pretty. I put it on the bottom of some jeans. Always get compliments on it.

    I have one and used it to FMQ my avatar quilt (queen size) must have been beginner's luck, first quilt and first Fab=u=motion project. Worked great. Couldn't seem to get it to work as well on large projects after, but small ones work well. Does not come with the top square thing. No instructions, just the DVD.
    Got a long arm for the big stuff.

    I just can't believe how nice it is to have the king frame and 17" machine. I work two jobs so don't have a whole lot of time, but for the couple small size quilts I have practiced on from willing friends, I was so amazed the very first time when I took it off and looked at the back of it, how nice it was. No wrinkles, just so nice. Mindless meandering is all I am comfortable with for now. Need to buy other toys for it to venture beyond my comfort zone. I love this Board. I know it will be a daily visit for sure.
