Wink I may have lost my mind...But it sure is fun!!

I have been looking at Quilt machines for a long time. I was interested when someone here mentioned the new Babylock Tiara. A 16 inch long arm quilting machine--a sit down. I downloaded the brochure and loved the fact that it came with its own table. I'll never be able to afford a stand up unit and will never have the space for one. I asked my dealer about it and he Said he would have one in for the local show. Well..... The show was this weekend. He had one and I tried it and fell in love. Then I went a step further and bought it using the show discount. My DH wasn't even mad!!! He knows I will use it!! No buyers remorse for me!! I may start out with jut stripling but I'll learn. My niece is going to have lots of doll quits while I'm learning!!

Sounds like you are going to have a great time with your new machine.

I got inspired with what you said, googled the machine & just didn't come up with what I was looking for. However this sounds like something that would work for me. Enjoy the machine.

Here's the link. I am just a consumer. I don't work for them or anyone who does. I'm getting ready to have time to use this so I bought it. A little expensive but I ve been saving for it.

Can you give an idea of what the cost was? Not sure how much something like this would cost and would like to have it in my mind to consider.

I think they are priced around $6500,00. I bought for show price of $4400.00 with delivery and setup included. I'm sure there are cheaper machines but this dealer is close, and does all servicing on machine!! This one plus my embroidery and regular machine!! Will also give me full price on trade-in if I move into higher model!
