I am so frustrated! I have spent hours a days for many days trying to find a vintage long arm sewing machine. For now, I just want an older sturdy machine but one that has a really big harp space for quilting. About the longest I have been able to find is 9 inches. I have a 221 Featherweight and a 50s model Riccar that I do my piecing on but the openings are just too small for a large quilt. Please, any help would be greatly appreciated. Any ideas other than a vintage machine without spending thousands of $$$?
