    I was going to wait until I got it home to post, so there would be pictures, but I'm too excited to wait. We are leaving tomorrow morning to drive to Ephrata, WA, and I will get two days training on the Innova 26" longarm. Then on Friday we will load it up and bring it home. AND - I will get to meet Omak, who lives nearby. Did I say I'm excited???

    Congrats Linda! Charismah lives in Ephrata. Are you getting it at 'The Fabric Patch'? They are all so nice there and Charismah works there on some weekends. Let us see photos and hear a report on how you like it.

    AND you'll get to meet Omak and Charismah - you lucky duck!

    Now, about that Long Arm - how long til you start taking tops in to quilt? In a few months I'll have a Snake River log cabin that'll need quilting! :mrgreen: :lol:

    Congratulations - It's like adding a member to the family. I want one - I have always wanted one, but like my husband says, "If you get one, we will have to move out - the house is too small". So I will just sit here and envy you and be happy for you! Edie

    Which one are you getting? I have the HandiQuilter 16 and I love it. Am considering adding the computer attachment. Still not sure if it does exactly what I want so I'm still in the maybe stage. We have two local stores that sell HQ.

    Dunster, I am so happy for you and really envious!! The Innova is my dream machine! Took it for a "test drive" at a quilt show last September and have lusted for it ever since. I am religiously saving away for it but am a good 5 years away unless I hit the lottery. Enjoy and please post lots of pictures of the fabulous quilting you are sure to do with this machine, even the practice pieces!
