    This is why I wished I lived closer to my family ( not one member within 550 miles) So we could co-op a machine.

    So glad you are able to split the cost three ways. What fun you all will have fighting over who gets to quilt next.

    You all will enjoy that. I bought one and my DILs and my sister come to use it. My DILs didn't sew until they married my sons. My husband says, "They took a look at all your toys and decided they wanted to play, too." They both love FMQ on the HQ.

    Congratulations!

    You are so lucky. My Mom is gone and my one sister doesn't sew or talk to me. I wish I had more family. I have 3 daughters and a D-I-L, and none of them sew. They all look to me to make things for them and do any repairs or hems. Oh well, that is my lot in life I guess. I'll have to continue to rent a long arm and use my Janome machine to get the quilts done. Enough of my pity party, and I need to get off here and start sewing.

    A mid arm. Usually on a rack.

    You are so lucky. My mom, sister, and daughter do not sew. Wish I would have them to share quilting stories with and to split the cost of the machine! Lucky you! My friend has the HQ Avante and loves it. I'm sure you will, too. Have fun!
