    Today I made the deposit on an ABM 26" Innova longarm quilting machine. Now I have to get the grimlins cracking on the garage renovation into the quilting studio.
    Don't know how I will get to sleep tonight. I am sooo excite.

    Congrats to you! I have an APQS ULT 1 (they don't make it anymore) and just love it. I have thought of upgrading, but just like my machine too much.

    If you like it that much then you are making the best call. I just recently had to sell my "real job" after 31 years. Since it was a distress sale I won't realize a lot of money but I decided to spend what I get on what I WANT!

    I do have a few nights to sleep. I still have to get the garage converted so I requested a later delivery.
    I am already dreaming of all the UFO's that will become completed projects and I am not sleeping yet.
