    Wink I bought a Bailey 13 quilting machine!!!

    Thanks to those who responded to my question about what machine to buy. As soon as I saw the Bailey 13 I knew it was perfect for my needs! I have never spent that much money on something just for my pleasure!
    It will be shipped from New York, so I will get it in about a week! That will give me time to finish up some sewing I need to do, cause I know once I get it here I will have to get aquainted with my present to myself. I am a happy camper!!
    I quilt, therefore I am.

    There's a Bailey group at yahoo, you might wish to join. Lot's of good info there, and you can ask questions too.
    So if you encounter any problems at all, you can post about them and get answers....

    Congrats! I'm still getting used to my 15. Don't have the room to set up my frame all the time. I have four quilt tops ready to do, but think I'm going to wait until after the Holidays are behind us, and things slow down some.

    Have fun with your Bailey!

    Do tell us how you like it after you receive it. I'm looking into that one also and would value your opinion.

    Thanks for all your responses. One thing I forgot to mention. Bailey is an American made machine. I am all for buying products made in America.
    I quilt, therefore I am.

    Ditter 43, Tried to PM you but your mailbox is FULL! You need to delete some messages or no can can send you mail anymore. Just an FYI. There is a box limit of 500 now.

    Congratulations on your new Bailey! You should be able to quilt about a 9" depth of fabric with each pass. Make yourself a quilt sandwich with a couple yards of ugly or low quality fabric and a piece of batting in between. Once you've filled the sandwich with stitches just change thread colors and practice again and again. The other piece of advice that I can give you is to **remember to put your presser foot down before sewing**. LOL, that's the number one problem most newbies encounter. Just wanted to pass it on. Feel free to PM me if you have any questions. I also second joining the Yahoo Group for "Baileyquiltingmachines".

    I,m sure you will love it. I live about an hour away from where they are made and went to see the Baileys.
    They look like a great machine and are on my wish list.
    Congratulations.
    so many quilts to make, so little time.

    Congrats on you new machine! I'm an owner of a Bailey 15. If you need any help theres a yahoo group that is very informational. Theres also a few youtube videos that you might want to watch.

    That is so great. When I have a bigger space and the money, a Bailey will be what I get.
