Check out the information on midarms in the "files" section of the homequiltingsystems group at http://groups.yahoo.com . Lots of good info there.
Welcome to the Quilting Board!
I have a Janome 1600 on a Little Gracie II Frame with the cruise control and love it would like a long arm but my buget says this is what I can afford and so far it has been well worth the money
I think I went too big initially. Got the APQS Millenium (still can't spell that word). Took up my entire sewing room and I felt guilty about spending so much. Now I just want something easy for me to use with a much lower price tag.
