    At my LQS you can rent their LA foruy a very reasonable rate. They also set up the LA and I buy the batting from them. It takes one to four hours, for me to do a quilt, depending on the size. It also has a light that you use to follow a FMQ pattern so there is no thinking todo. It is fun and easy and you do not have to follow the lines on the pattern perfectly, that is what makes it fun and easy. I have to admit the LQS I use is SPECIAL I have done 3 there this past year and plan on doing several more this year. They are also having a FMQ class for your home sewing machine so will be taking that is a couple of weeks. I now have a sewing machine that is large enough to try it.

    I am new to longarming, but a fellow longarmer charges 1 cent per square inch for charity quilts - haven't asked what she charges for regular stuff - she does beautiful work - I can only hope to get as good - I just finished my own king-size quilt (100 x 120) and it took almost four hours of sewing time and nine bobbins of thread on the longarm (not counting loading, advancing, etc.). I did an edge-to-edge pantograph on it. 12,000 square inches = $120 (1 cent) and $180 (1.5 cent). If I charged 1 cent then I would be making $30/hour and that seems like pretty good wages to me ...

    I use Butler Country Crafts. I mail them to her in Montana, insured of course. She is very reasonable and I have never been disappointed in her work. You can contact her online. She provides the batting. She has quilted about 15 quilts for me and many more for family and friends. Please send private email if any questions so we don't bore the group. No relation to her, I live in Fl. She has been very accommodating to me and my family/friends for about the last 5-6 years. I hope I don't flood her with requests so she doesn't have time to quilt mine.

    I noticed if you put your cursor on the yellow words they turn green, and are very easy to see then.

    WHO IN THE WORLD chooses yellow lettering on white?!

    As soon as you click on an example, the yellow turns to a readable color. This is a great sight.
    Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, WINE IN THE OTHER, totally worn out and screaming "WOO HOO, what a ride!"

    FYI- for those who have trouble with yellow or other light colored and small fonts...Use your mouse to highlight each part you want to read. It changes the whole page to be MUCH more ledgible!



    For small fonts, use your Ctrl button and scroll up to make the page bigger.
