    Hello Everyone,
    I just found this board while looking for a long arm quilting machine. I think I will really like it here. My old board closed down. I missed seeing what everyone is making.

    I have been sewing for 49 years, and made a few little quilts, but in the last 4 years, I have really started quilting.
    I have an embroidery shop in my garage, with 3 machines, and I also have 2 sewing machine and 1 surger set up all the time. You tend to sew more if the machines are out.
    My husband wants to buy me a long arm quilter, but it will have to go in the sunroom. I have too much in the shop already.
    So I've been looking at them. Does anyone have any ideas? I don't want an industrial machine, just one for home use. I was looking into the Handi-quilter, has anyone had one of them?

    I look forward to chatting with you all. :D

    Welcome from Sherwood, OR. I grew up in Fremont. I can't be any help on the LA machines since I'm looking to rent time on one in my area to give it a try. There is so much knowledge and experience here I know someone will be of help to you. Also do a search on your subject-I know a few of the quilters on the board have LA buisnesses. Welcome and I know you will really enjoy the board. :lol: :thumbup:
