    New Long Arm Room

    My husband gave me a wonderful Xmas present, a used Gammill Classic Plus on a 14 ft. frame, but even better still, he remodeled our old, yucky workshop, which is adjacent to my quilting studio to make room for it. Here are some before, during and after photos you might be interested in. And for what it's worth, every piece of furniture, shelving, cabinets etc., even my Gammill are used, re-purposed, thrift store or refinished . The corner cabinets were a thrift store buy for $20, the rocker and footstool were in my basement for the last 18 years, the shelves were in the workshop (and were gross!), and the black and white drawer cabinets were elsewhere in my house - I just painted them, and voila! It's my slice of heaven! Hope all your quilting dreams come true in 2013 too!

    What a great room!! I would soooo love to have that much space.
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    If there were a prize to give, You my dear would win. What a fantastic re-do. How motivating to see what a little creativity, a little money (for the Gammill), and some effort can get. GREAT JOB! You should keep him around LOL
