    Hello from Salem, Oregon

    Hi, I'm Barb. I'm an avid quilter, and have been for over 30 years. I'm in my 50's, still working and have to find time for quilting. I have 3 sewing machines, 1 serger and multiple irons. I recently had my Juki TL-98Q stretched, and am in the process of trying to figure out how to modify my old original handiquilter frame to accomodate for the 18" throat. Good luck to me, right?

    Hi Barb - Welcome from AZ. You'll have to keep us posted on the machine stretch and your frame modificaton. I guess if all else fails, maybe you can find a longarm frame at a reasonable price. Im in my 50's as well.
