    So I picked up my Voyager 17 after lunch today - it's in my car waiting for hubby to pick her up - she's pretty heavy at 70 pounds... might need to call her Bertha lol. We'll see after I run her a bit over the next few weeks and see if a name pops up.

    I got her used off of Craigslist. The Nolting dealer out of GA gotten her in on a trade and I was able to buy her and now after waiting for a few weeks to get her she's here! The dealer was coming to town for the quilt show and he said he'd bring her out when he came here - which he did. He's a great guy :)

    I'll get pictures of my cramped sewing room one of these days - but she's a beauty!! I can't wait to learn to use her!!!

    I'm so pleased for you, I wish we had something like Craiglist here in Ireland.

    Looks like it might be awhile - I need to now get a bobbin winder - it didn't have it with it although I've got the instruction manual for it so the woman that traded in my machine kept that - and I don't blame her since she'd need it for the machine she now has and all - and she forgot to send in all the parts to the stitch length regulator so they're going to be replacing those parts for me...

    It's all good though. I should have it up and running by sometime next week!!
    I'll definitely post up pics once I get it all set up - and then I'll take pics of the quilting I get done on it. I will say it is heavy. Really heavy. I do wish I could have afforded a less heavy machine but it's all good in the end. I figure after my husband has lifted it on and off the carriage a dozen times or so he'll ask me to sell it and replace it with a lighter machine lol

    I got my Voyager 17 last year and was thrilled. Didn't have a dh to move it for me so I struggled a bit, but got it all set up and running. Since then, I've had soooo much fun with anything I quilt. It gives me so much freedom to do whatever I want to do. I just LOVE my Voyager. By the way, I named mine "Miss Magic". lol
    Have tons of fun with yours. I know u will.
