    Thank you!

    I guess I have just been a little intimidated by it. It's SO BIG! :shock:

    Happy B-day!! Once you get acquainted with the long arm, you will love it!! I have the Hobbyquilter and I don't know what I would do without it. Even my grandson has used it, and it was just 6 or 7 at the time he did.

    Enjoy,
    Barb

    I'm sure once I dig into it, I will get the hang of it. I just wish my mom was here to help me figure it out. But it is still too cold here for her so they are waiting a few more weeks before they come back. (It was 18 degrees this morning. BURR!)

    I can't believe you have waited that long to try....I have a midarm A-1 on a 12 ft. table. I had a few "hiccups" while learning to use my machine. I bought it used and basically was told, here is the video, have fun. You will do fine, I am sure. Just have patience and play a lot and remember..DO HAVE FUN WITH IT.

    I didn't get a video, all I got was a manual from the 90's. It didn't have instructions for loading a quilt or anything! I searched high and low for a class to take that I didn't have to book a flight for, but couldn't find one. Then finally my boyfriend said that he thinks his cousins wife does that. Well she does and will come and help me anytime. She lives 3 miles from me!

    I did find that the gammill website has way better instructions than the Nolting one.

    how fortunate you are I amdieing to get one but worried about the room it takes up. Don't want to discourage the grandbabies from coming over!!
    Am interested in which brand you bought and how you made your decision.
