i think it's time to consider a machine with a larger harp.
i really don't want a computer inside the machine at all. no circuit boards, no nothing. just a straight stitch mechanical machine with a large harp for free motion quilting.
i don't want stitch or speed regulation or any bells and whistles, honestly. i'm not even particularly interested in ever mounting it on a frame, but i think an extension table is requisite.
i have been looking at juki mid-arm machines, but thought i'd throw it out here and see if you have any input.
thanks for your advice!
