    I have just spent a large amount of money on a longarm. It's a 2 yr old secondhand Gammill Classic Plus with a 14'table. The lady is throwing in a bobbin winder, approx 20 bobbins and a nice pantogram, plus she said I can call her if I need help. It is so scary but so exciting. The next two weeks are going to go so slow until I bring it home. By the way it is called Bruce. Does anyone else name their machines?

    Congratulations. I hope you and Bruce become very good friends. :-) Does he get his own room or will he have to share with the other siblings? :-)

    You will wonder how you quilted before the LM. I love mine. I can tell you how to quilt with a regular machine, but I can't do it bc I've done all my quilting on a LM. It does take practice, but what doesn't? :lol: :lol:

    Congratulations on your new/used long arm! You will absolutely love it. Sounds like the seller will be very helpful transitioning it from her to you. Have fun!

    Great! Congrats! I know it was love at first sight. How lucky for Bruce to find a home with you.

    I have had my Gammill for ten years now and am still madly in love with it. I never named it - couldn't think of a name good enough I guess. However; there was one day that if I had named it, it would not have been a name that I could repeat here. LOL

    I had a gammill long arm quilter that was named "Armond". Well...I didn't HAVE him...I saw him on ebay and fantasized about him from then on. My Hubby said he was like my romance novel lover, so we named him Armond. *sigh*

    Congrats on Bruce joining your family! I know you will be happy spending hours and hours with him!
