    Last year, DH wanted to buy me a longarm and frame for about $18,000. I would never spend that kind of money, and we don't have the space. So...I bought the Flynn frame (love it!), and DH fabricated a frame/truck system that sits on my dining room table, and legs, can break down easily for storage, is close to 20' long, and cost no more than $300-$400 dollars, including Flynn frame. Neat, eh?
