I don't have one either, but sure would love to. I do my quilting on my domestic Janome 8050.

I feel the same way Homespun - but I also just actually ENJOY the time I spend at the frame hand quilting each stitch. I can truly say every stitch in my quilts is filled w/my love. (I've also worked out many little problems in my life sitting at the frame for hours)

Do you have to stand up to use a LA??? I've never seen a LA in action, but pics of the ones I've seen look like you would have to stand up. If so, even if I didn't prefer to hand quilt or had the space to put one, a physical disability would prevent me from getting one.

No quilting machine here either. I probably couldn't figure out how to use it anyway :lol: I am trying to master QAYG and I think that's the only way I am going to get my larger quilts done. However, I still like to hand quilt too....I'm just a lot slower at that than I used to be.

You are definately not the only one. I might stitch in the ditch my smaller quilts but I send the bigger ones to someone else to quilt.

In my dreams....I would have the best set up there is. In the real world, I could probably spring for the Sweet 16 sit down model. :cry: My reality is not so bad, I use my Viking and get by just fine. ;-)

Add me to the list of "I just quilt with my Brother"!

Don't have one and at this point don't want one.
No room and no money!!
But I'll never say never. Just not now.
