I'm so excited--I ordered a Tin Lizzie 18LS with a metal frame!! I'm supposed to get it on Dec. 21st. I am on a budget and due to some customer service issues (long story), I was offered a terrific price on this new Tin Lizzie 18LS so that was the deciding factor for me on which long arm to purchase. I ws also contemplating the Handi Quilter but then the huge price difference became teh deciding factor for me. I would love to hear comments from Tin Lizzie owners. Sure wish I was getting it a week earlier as I have a quilt for a Xmas gift that I still have to quilt on my sewing machine. UGH!!!! But it's a good feeling knowing it is the last one I will have to do on my sewing machine!
