    I went today and bought my new quiltinig machine!!!! The Janome 1600P.
    I also ordered the GMQ-Pro quilting frame. It should be here in about a week. The machine is sitting here still in the box until I have time to take it out and admire it properly. I also bought a new CD of quilt label designs for my embroidery machine. And just to balance things out, I bought a new carpet cleaner too. LOL When I told my sweetheart husband what I did, he asked when I was going to Jo-Anns. He is a keeper!! He doesn't know that I already have 4 quilt tops done, waiting to be quilted.. Just had to tell someone who will be as excited as I am.

    Good for you! I have the exact same set up - 1600P with the GMQ-Pro frame. I LOVE LOVE LOVE my machine and am in the process of setting up the frame, but I can already tell that it is going to be worth it! So excited for you!

    I have just finished putting together the quilting frame. Be sure to have the video before you start. It would have been a big help. I also got the Janome 1600P and am in the process of putting the Sure Stitch attachment on it. Now I find I am missing a tiny spring and will try to find it locally. If not, I will call the Little Gracie people. The machine works wonderfully tested separately. I'm anxious to have it all put together. It's been a really challenging process. Let me know if there is anything I can tell you from my experience. I'm glad I didn't know it would be this hard!
