    Innova Long Arm users?

    Ok-

    I was just wondering if there are Innova long arm users who can shed some light on this machine? I know Charisma quilts all of her stuff on her machine, but just wondering if anyone else on this board has one. You can send me a PM if you don't want to post about it.

    There is a really good special going on that I thought I might be interested in. I currently want an APQS machine, however, the price is out of my budget right now. Innova has a good special going on, in addition the dealer lives about an hour and half away from me, so not too far.

    Just curious as I can't seem to find a lot of information about this quilting system and machine. Thanks, JC

    it is best to (test-drive) as many different machines as possible before making a decision- like buying a car- they are all pretty expensive (an investment) and what is right for me may not be right for you- don't just buy a long-arm because there is a good special on it- or the gal in the next town loves hers===you may not like it at all- and may find a different one (fits you) better.

    Yes, I have tested both and they are about equal..each one has its own benefits. The price on the 22inch Innova is very competitive. I just feel I want to get the "most" out of my money..does that make sense?

    I have always read positive posts about Innova longarms. For more info you could join the homequiltingsystems group on groups.yahoo.com . This is a large, active group of machine quilters with lots of different machines and setups. There's quite a bit of info in their files section, plus if you post I'm sure some owners will be glad to comment on their machines.

    I love this machine and it's so far my #1 for a long arm (in the future). There are quite a few videos on UTube and on the Innova site...

    I have an Innova and I love it. I would suggest that you find an expo or something like that where you can try other machines.
    enjoy your life...it's the only one you have!!!

    I own an Innova 26 with autopilot. I'm very happy. I tested all the major brands before I bought. You can pm me if you have any questions
