I don't have one either and like you, my place is so small. I must admit that I would have a difficult and extremely painful time if I had to stand to use one.I have degenerative disc disease and arthritus in my spine. I have quite a few discs missing so have had to back away from some things.My lights are flickering so bad this morning, I may lose power at any time.

I don't have one either. I would have to make a lot of quilts to justify that kind of purchase. Then, I would have to find room to set it up.

Nope you aren't alone, I don't have a quilting machine either. I do what quiting I do on my regular machine. It takes me a long time, but I get it done. So don't feel alone ok. Have a Blessed day.

I like nothing better than to sit at my frame or under a hoop and relax by hand quilting. Machines are not for me.

I don't have one either. Don't want the long arm, no where to put it. I still hand quilt but am going to try to quilt a small top on my Brother.

Nope, don't have one, do my quilting on my brother,it's almost the true meaning of quilting.

You are not the only one. I just use a regular sewing machine - it is difficult but I'd rather use a machine than do it by hand. I dream of someday owning a quilting machine!

Thanks.

You're not the only one who doesn't have a quilting machine. The quilts I make I Stitch in the Ditch...have you tried that? I'm going to learn how to free motion quilt, someday! Boo Whoo, don't be sad...maybe some day the Quilting Machine Fairy Godmother will visit you, so keep strong and forge ahead.

Nope, don't have one and don't have plans to get one either. I quilt all mine on my little Bernina. Its not hard, just take your time and make sure you have a large something on your left and behind the machine to support the weight.

You're not aloe. I would love to get a quilting machine but it's still out of my price range. I do my own FMQ on my Janome 6600. Il find I enjoy it and feel as if I have lots of control since my hands are on the fabric all the time. About 2 years ago, I quilted a king size on my domestic machine and had no problem.
