    O.k. so you saw "New baby" and know I'm a Granny, so you know it's not me that's having a baby.

    It's my den!

    I just placed an order for the LongArm machine!!!! I'm excited, nervous, and now need to make a few quilt tops for practice, need to clean up and reorganize my den, need to work on the web site so that is up and running, need to get organized need to.......

    I also need a few quilt tops for my DH to practice on as he will be doing a lot of the work too! He wants to get really good at the meandering! The class we took taught him (us) some of that, and how to do the vines, flowers, leaves, and such.

    Our system will also have the computer to do the quilting with 65 patterns to choose from and more to be added later, as well as the many many paper patterns to follow, create or just use our imaginations!

    I wish you lived near me. I would come over and help you play on your new baby when it got here. I want to find a long armer that does rent out time on her machine. I really want to learn how to use one. Then maybe rent time and go to two on my own quilt tops.

    Yes, we are both still working at our regular jobs. We will be for a while until we get the LA up and running etc.

    No, the web site is not up yet. We will be working on that during the time it will take for the machine to get here. And then some practice quilts done to have as 'show'.

    I will let ya know when it is up.

    From what everyone says, there's a long learning curve to this.

    Yah....I am so happy for you and your hubby. My hubby also uses my LA - he just likes the meander pattern - he says it can be relaxing.
    Sounds like you are getting a really nice one - can't wait to see your quilting....

    Congratulations! Oh,how I remember that feeling. Be sure and get your own quilt tops done. I still have mine waiting to be quilted 6 years later. But... business is good.

    I am so very happy for you & your DH. It is awesome when your DH will join in on the quilting aspect. I love to piece & my DH does the LA. What kind are you getting? Come on we want details. :thumbup: We have an A1 longarm and love it. No Computer stuff yet. Maybe someday. :wink: He just does mine & my Mom's quilts so we probably will never need a Computer system but they are certainly wonderful! I am excited for you.
