Welcome to the QB and happy quilting .
I bought a Bailey but had to sell it when I moved to a small apartment. It worked very well. And Chuck Bailey is so easy to work with. He's happy to talk you through questions over the phone.

I had never heard of your machine but it looks like once you get to know each other you will be able to do great stuff! There is a big learning curve in machine quilting and the best way to get it is lots of practice. You might try getting some sheets from the thrift store and doing various things with them first.

I'm here in the general Seattle area, Renton specifically. I was lucky enough to use my friend's long arm for a number of years and now I'm trying to relearn how to do it on my domestic. It won't help with learning your machine, but if you find you need classes in learning how to machine quilt we are lucky to be right in the home district of Longarm University.

I'd have to look for it but I also have some long armers in the Spokane area I can recommend.

I have a 20" Bailey and absolutely love it. I also say, give Chuck a call, he'll be happy to help you in any way he can.
