    I ran up to Joann's to see what they had for purple fabric on clearance. The Joann's by me has a Husqvarna Viking dealer inside the store. They had there longarm machine up and they gave me a demo.

    Talk about a nice machine! It's on sale for only $12,000! I'm taking up a collection! :lol:

    Oh..... I would love one of those for Christmas too!!!!
    I have been talking to DH for several years about getting one. It will be a while yet, we need a new car first!!!
    I may have to wait until one of our parents pass (which I hope is not soon) before I can afford to by a long arm.

    I have been thinking this for awhile and I am going to say it now. Do those machines really have to be so expensive. Geez I could buy a small car for the price of one of them!
    Does it have everything you need? Stitch regulator, quilting frame and patterns to follow too? Or is all that extra?

    I really would like at quality long arm machine but that is the price of a swimming pool or 6 trips down south for hubby and me... geewillikers!

    Are you still looking for purples??? I did buy a yard and a half at Joann's yesterday and I might have some more if you still are needing some. This is a white with a dark lavendar curly-cue on it.

    Mamagus,
    Everything was included, the frame, stitch regulator plus Q-bot. (It uses a SD card. I think it comes with 75 patterns and you were able to design your own and put it on the SD card.)
    The lady was telling me that I should buy it and open my own business! haha (I wish)

    It really would be a wonderful Christmas gift. And don't pooh pooh the business idea too quickly. In my area, there are more "piecers" than there are "quilters", so anyone with a longarm can be as busy as they wish. And as you know, it is rather dear to have someone else do your quilting for you.

    Even if I won the lottery I could never spend that kind of money on a quilting machine. My husband would have a heart attack on the spot, so I'd have to factor in the cost of his medical bills. That machine would cost me $100,000 by the time it were all said and done.

    I bought my self a smaller version. I got the inspria quilt frame and the Mega quilter machine from Husqvarna. It is WAY bigger than I thought and had to do some rearranging to get it set up!!! I still haven't used it yet. I have had it for two months now. Been set up for one month. It was $5000, but I have saved for sometime to get it.

    Kat, They also had the mega quilter there. They wanted 4 grand for it but it didn't come with the frame (nor q-bot). It looked like it had a descent sized throat space. When it's hooked up the frame how big is your sewing area?
    Star, I appreicate your buck. :lol: but I would have to find 11,999 more friends to get it! :lol:

    WOW! What a great Christmas gift that would be. I know there is a big demand for that type of quilting. There is usually a long wait to get a quiltop quilted. I have a friend who quilts quite a bit and has had a couple of quilts done and she has had to wait quite a bit. She lives in San Francisco and still had to wait. You might think about doing it for $. Fons and Porter claim it can pay for itself and I agree!

    I would love to get the Bernina 830, their latest gem. It also costs $12,000. and unless I were win the Lotto, I don't see one in my future...

    Good luck in getting and ejoying yours!

    I have an older version of the Mega quilter and inspira frame. Does your dealer take trade ins? I would love the newer machine and frame. Mine will only let me quilt about 6 inches at a time. Would love the new one.
