    Am interested in knowing if anyone has a long arm machine, which one, and what would you recommend? I'm new to quilting, but would like to learn and do more. Quilting them on a small machine is not the easiest.

    I gave a Tin Lizzy a small test run and I thought that would be a nice set up to have.

    My aunt just purchased the Voyager 17 with a Hinterberg stretch frame and simply loves it.

    I have an Innova 26 which I dearly love. But being a long
    arm it was pricey as they all are.

    I have the HQ Sixteen with the price it is really wonderful and can do what you want it to. I have had mine now for 5 years and have had no trouble with it at all. Ruth Ann

    I tried a HQ sixteen at a quilting show and would love to have that one. Someday, maybe.

    Hello, I am new also, I watched my grandmother quilt by hand so I knew enough that I was not going that way. A local quilt shop had Mr Floyd (owner of Tin LIzzie) in to demo the new Tin LIzzie 18LS.....I took her for a test drive and it was very, very nice.....and, a lot cheaper than others on the market. A friend had a JUki and burned it up......but, after many, many hours of sewing.....another person I know has a Juki and the throat space is very small (like a regular sewing machine) therefore, she has to roll the quilt often. Check them out on line and read about them and you'll be able to decide. I do believe that I am going for the TL18LS. Good Luck! :-D

    Someday I want to get a Longarm, and a tin lizze or a Gammail is the one I'd get.
