    Me neither. I'm happy with my $88 Wally World Brother Special. I'm not real big on the heavy quilting that people do with the long arm machines. Sorry just not my thing. If I add another machine, it an treddle

    I've got a Handiquilter Sweet 16 sitdown mid-arm. Love being able to have the space to quilt easily, and it is strictly for my own use.

    I have an HQ16, and I love her! Such a convenience. Wish I had the computer screen thing with it tho. But I am very thankful for what I do have!

    I have a APQS Mellinium that is just for my own use although I wish my girls were interested in learning to quilt before i'm too old to teach them. Maybe one of my grandaughters will. Doing quilts for others is too stressful, it's not my cup of tea.

    I bought a Gracie frames and a Janome 1600 machine about 6 years ago. It more then paid for itself. It worked best for me to just meander with it. Had someone want to buy it and sold it as a unit. Now I have a Viking 18 x 8. Think I will like it. Just having a few problems with it.

    No! I don't quilt for others, althought I do let a few friends use it from time to time. I really want this to be a hobby, not a job.

    APQS Lenni for me. Love it too. It's an 18" throat but lately I wish I had more. Have done a few for hire, but it is stressful. I'd rather write another book.

    I have a Tin Lizzie 18LS that I purchased a year ago, and it's for my personal use. I have no desire to quilt for others. I've done it a couple of times as a favor, but it makes me too nervous. I'd rather just quilt for myself.

    I have the Tin Lizzie 18DLS which my DH bought for me last April and I love her. After I went through all the learning curves with her, we became great friends. I have quilted a couple of quilts for a dear friend, but, I have no intention of turning it into a business. And for some reason, I no longer have the need to justify having one for personal use, I just enjoy her.
    Quilting is my PASSION not my pass time.

    I have a Tin Lizzie and have finally gotten the bugs out of her. It took 2 years. With so many of us having LA's I wonder why there isn't a forum dedicated to our part in quilting. Or is there one and in this new version of the site I have not found it?

    I also have the Viking 18/8, on a Grace frame. I am getting pretty good at meander, having had mine less than a year. Will never be good enough to do it professionally. But it is wonderful for all my charity quilts.

    How about pot luck. You're entitled to do your own thing at 82. Besides, the quilts last longer than the food.

    I have a Juki with an 18 " throat. My frame was part of a package from a Canadian Co. B-line on British Columbia. Total package under 6K.
