I'm in the market for a mid-arm quilting machine. I just returned from the Lancaster Quilt show in Lancaster, PA where I test drove all of the machines exhibited. I have narrowed it down to either the 18" Gammill or Handi-Quilter. The prices are comparable.
The thing about the Gammill that is off-putting is that they require 2 training sessions before they deliver and set-up the machine. The closest training for me, according to the reps at the quilt show is Virginia.
I'd appreciate any feedback from anyone with experience with either machine.
