    Instead of telling people you don't quilt for the public, how about offering to let them pay to use your machine themselves? Anyone ever done that?

    I like to make lists. I also like to leave them laying on my sewing table and then guess what's on the list while at the fabric store. Fun game.

    I have a Pfaff Grandquilter and a Next Generations. Since I have just retired I hope to get more use out of it.

    I purchased a HQ16 last spring - and love it. It is a great machine - I have done 8 tops since I set it up. I have turned into a "finisher" not just a "top maker" .

    Yea Finisher is such a great feeling . I love your saying you are a finisher not just a top maker. That was my reason for owning my own LA machine I wanted the glory from start to finish of the quilt top.

    So happy for you Sue let the fun begin !

    Charmy, What brand of LA do you use? Could you pass along any advice to someone who is buying one soon? I've never used one, other than test driving a couple times.

    Sunday dinner every day, whew. My husband would love that one but he's spoilt bad enough. I think it would be nice to have a long arm if I had the extra dollars.

    I had a mid-arm, but I sold it because it crowded my sewing studio too much. I would like to have a long arm but the only room big enough for one is the great room. I tried to convince DH that we don't use the sofa enough to warrant keeping it. We could get rid of the sofa and move his recliner and my chair and the lamp table to that side of the room. The long arm would fit along the wall where the chairs and lamp table were. So far he's not falling for it. lol

    The folks at QNNtv.com wrote us that they are running a free weekend for everyone to watch all shows, just to see what QNNtv.com is all about. That way non-members can decide if you like the format of the tons of videos about longarm quilting they offer.

    As there are three episodes featuring Art and Stitch I am happy to pass the link on so that you can all admire this (and more) for free this weekend:

    I have a long arm only in my dreams, but I do have a Juki with a Grace frame. I only quilt for myself, or occasionally for a friend. Although there are so many wonderful quilters out there that I'll never hold a candle to, I do like the idea of doing the whole thing by myself, and it's more economical for me to do my own. Plus, it's just fun to watch that needle creating designs!
    Bless, O Lord, the works of my hands....

    I have a Gammill Premier Plus. I love it!!! I have only quilted 2 or 3 quilts for other people and most are done for myself and are quilts I made for my family and friends. I have no regrets and I love my machine!!!

    I enjoy piecing a whole lot more than machine quilting, so I compromise. I fmq lap and baby quilts and send the bigger tops (about 3 a year) to a long arm quilter. I am lucky to have the best of both worlds!
