no you are not the only one I don't have a long arm either. I either quilt by hand or stibble on my sewing machine. I would love to have one too. they can be alot of work too though. I prefer a hand quilted quilt though.

No quilting machine here. I feel that I spend a fortune having projects quilted. I am trying to learn FMQ on my regular machine....(not an easy task!) I have done some small projects using SITD and some stitches my machine does. FMQ is so hard for me to do consistently. I think I need many more hours of practice. I have just recently started to experiment with some hand quilting.
Don't feel alone! There are many of us on the board who do not have quilting machines. We can dream, though. lol

I use my regular sewing machine to do all of my quilting and I just made a quilt for my 6'8" grandson. So you know it was big. I didn't say it was easy. LOL

You aren't the only one. I either quilt on my brother or my janome. I must say for that reason I don't enjoy quilting. I would love to be able to afford a LAQ but that's never going to happen

I prefer to quilt by hand. I can't do the beautiful quilts that many of you do, but people I give them to are impressed by all the work and time that went into them. I bought a machine with a frame attached, but have not had the time to really work with. Too busy being retired and travelling.

Hey, I'm a hand quilter by choice. I enjoy the process. Don't have a desire for a long arm; don't want to wrestle with my DSM. I do MQ for those charities that require it but otherwise I'm a handquilter.

Anyone end up buying a long arm since this post? Pls share which one you purchased.
