    Hi,

    I finally did it...I bought a long arm machine! Hubby told me to get 1 so I've been looking. I found a display model Baby Lock Jewel that was for sale so went and looked last weekend and she's mine! She won't be coming home with me for a couple of weeks while we move hubby's office out of my sewing area and get the sewing area painted and carpeted. I think I'll call it a quilting studio from now on! Baby is absolutely beautiful and I can't wait to get her home...

    I decided to call my "sewing room" the studio 'cause that's what it is. No matter where it is, how big or small, it is a studio. And i find I work better in the studio rather than on the kitchen table! good luck and show us your studios' progress!

    CONGRATULATIONS!

    I too just bought one. A Babylock Crown Jewel. It will be coming in a couple of weeks. I am so excited. I already have some long arm books to read and practice with my finger. I have 2 quilts ready for it. I'll send a picture when I do one.

    That's exciting! Can't wait to see what you quilt on it. And I love the "quilting studio". I think I'll steal that one. :)

    My sewing room is the upstairs game room. I call it 'The Eagle's Nest'. My husband, Keith calls it 'The Crow's Nest'. What does he know? Besides, he has bad knees and very rarely comes up. I'm really sorry about his knees. I'm sure you know how much it tears me up that he can't come to 'The Eagle's Nest'. NOT !!

    My suggestion would be to reconsider carpet on the floor. it is a bear to clean up all the threads that get on it from the long arm.

    Congradulations!! You will have so much fun!
