    I am getting a longarm for my 50th birthday!!!

    I am so excited, and only other quilters would understand. For my 50th birthday, my mother and father, bless their souls, just offered to buy me a longarm. My friend has a Juki set-up, and while it is not by any means the most elaborate or expensive, I think it will work fine for me as well. I am just so thrilled and grateful to them for doing this for me, and I hope to show you all the quilts I will be able to whip out now!! Just kidding, I know it is a long learning curve!
    Best,
    Nancy

    Fabric is like money, no matter how much you have it's never enough.

    Happy Birthday and many happy hours on your new toy. You'll love it no matter how fancy it is (or isn't). You have some pretty nice parents.... and I'm betting you take good care of them!

    Good morning,
    I was thinking that technically this is a mid-arm, but I don't care!! I can quilt more quickly and with more variety now!! Thank you for your birthday wishes. And yes - I am blessed with great parents!!

    Congratulations! Give your parents a hug for all of us whose parents are no longer with us.

    So are you getting the same Juki set up as your friend? Enjoy it to the fullest, and I am doing the happy dance for you!
    I am a homeschool mom to four little ladies, a prayerful wonderer and marveller, a spirit-filled dancer, a meek and mighty warrior, and a friend to many small creatures. Nice to meet you!

    Yes, I am getting the same set-up as my friend. It isn't huge, or fancy, but it is going to do what I need it to do!!

    I'll ask my parents if they need another daughter!! And, yes, I am so grateful they are still with me,
