    I just ordered a Voyager 17 with a Hinterberg frame today. I cannot wait to get it! My husband finally gave up all protests to putting it in the front living room. I was pretty persistent that we really didn't use that space and I might as well be using it for something I really want to do. So, now he's talking about adding on a sewing room in a couple of years. Which is just fine with me as long as I don't have to wait until then to get a longarm!!! I'll post pics on the process of setting it up.

    That is so great....I just took my husband to look at the Tin Lizzie....so he could see the framework (ha ha ha)...he thought it was pretty cool. Maybe someday...sigh. Have fun with it when it arrives. Can't wait to see all the cool things you do.

    Lucky girl!! Enjoy! I am kicking myself for not buying a longarm. I just spent 4 hours ripping out a quilt that I am working on. I have the Megaquilter on a frame and don't like the short depth.

    Oh thanks everyone. Jill, thanks for the positive feedback on the company and will probably be talk to you more. I researched a lot of the forums for comments from owners and found most people have had little trouble with it and that the support was great. I don't have a lot of room - maybe someday I'll have a bigger room. I've been practicing designs on pen and paper until my machine arrives. Counting down the days!

    Hi Myrna, Received my LA in Nov., 3 years ago. Had a friend in the business come and help with tips and suggestions. I practiced on alot of Linus quilts and a friend had many quilts to practice on for free. Started business maybe 3-4 months later. I only do free motion and lots of basic patterns-not much custom,but i am learning new tech. all the time. Get a dry erase board and practice patterns on that. I have an acct. that helps with taxes because I sell batting also. Keep records of everything--mileage to and from shops, shows,retreatsetc., retreat costs,supplies, donations of quilts and services. Check prices of quilting in your area and go from there. I usually charge 10.00 a bobbin and somewhere between the total inches of the quilt----some say Im to inexpensive. Hope this helps--let me know Jill
