    Hi BabsO,
    I have a Tin Lizzie 18LS. I got it at the quilt show in New Jersey two years ago. I have only done about 3 quilts on it as I am still working and can't seem to find the time. The quilts that I did do came out nicely. I am still learning a lot about longarm quilting. There is a yahoo group specifically for the Tin Lizzie that you might like to join. I have gotten a tremendous amount of information from the ladies on that site. They are really knowledgeable. As far as the poles, I like them much better than the first set-up that I had. I used to have the Pfaff GrandQuilter and Inspira frame. It did a beautiful job, but there just wasn't enough space to quilt in. I went with the Tin Lizzie because I tried a few of the machines out at the quilt show and I liked the way that it moved the best. It was also in my price range. Good luck and have fun.

    I have the older, 95 pound, Lizzie 18. I could not be happier with it. This machine is built to last. Mine has heavy, very sturdy poles, made from electrical pipes, love them. I don't know anything about the newer models but I love my machine (my husband says I pet it). I bought mine second-hand and it had been in for service and needle updating before I bought it. Congratulations on your new machine!

    Here's a picture of mine, the older model. The new ones have improvements. I have it set up in my kitchen, small house, we have to eat in the livingroom. I have disconnected the stitch length regulator as I don't use it. Excuse the backing remnants from the last quilt I did (still on the rails). :oops: I'm looking forward to seeing the new model when you put it up tomorrow, I've never seen one.
