    Curious. How many of you have your own long arm machines?

    Hi All-

    I am curious, but how many of you have your own long arm machines for PERSONAL use only? I see there are some nice specials on the web right now and its tempting. Just wondering. JC

    I have a Ken-Quilt. I've had it for sometime. Quilted 3 on it. I don't have any time left at the end of the day. I'm 82 and still cook a "Sunday" dinner every day. We office in our house and oh brother! Anyhow I have a good one. I have 5 tops to quilt of my own. Someday.

    I have a Tin Lizzie 18LS, if it wasn't for her, very few of my quilts would get finished. Love it.

    I have a Tin Lizzie 18 for my personal use. I piece probably 30+ quilts a year so could not afford to send them out. I also have arthritis in my hands and have had surgery on my right hand so can not hand quilt.

    I have a Viking Sapphire 830, with a 10in bed, on a Grace Mini Pinn frame, set up in crib size, & I love it! Sure beats doing one without a frame!...

    I have a Tin Lizzie that I bought just for my personal use. I work full time so I don't have time to quilt for others. However if I ever get to retire and feel that my work is good enough, I think I will try to do some quilts for extra money.

    I had a long arm and sold it! Just took up too much space, I now use a sweet 16, its' a sit down machine but I can do a king size quilt and it is much easier, I've had knee replacement and hours of standing just killed me!

    I have a Tin Lizzie 18 love it only do my own on it but have been having fun teaching my 11,9, & 6 yr old's grands to use it, Just wish I had more room so I could set her up for a king or Queen.

    Don't have my own, but I do rent time on one at a local quilt shop. I don't think I would ever quilt enough tops to justify buying one.

    Never regret. If it's good, it's wonderful. If it's bad, it's experience.
