    Hate to show my ignorance but what is a Tin Lizzy? Apparently everyone else knows what it is.

    You must have been a VERY good girl! But don't abandon your hand quilting! Both are wonderful. I try to keep up with both!

    I have the Tin Lizzie LS18 with Shirley Sticher II. The first year was H#*L to say the least. Have learn to over come many of my problems. The easiest lesson was to use King Tut Thread. There are a few videos on youtube.

    That is great validation! It shows he appreciates your love of quilting (and maybe the quilts too!) :-)

    i also have the tin lizzie ls18 but not the shirley stitcher. i love mine too. my machine likes king tut also. but i also use Signature thread from redrockthreads.com. it has 3,000 yds on a spool instead of 2,000 and sells for little less than king tut. and it works just beautiful as well.

    Have fun! I got one last spring and she and I are just beginning to be friends. I thought she was a little nasty at first with breaking threads and her Lizzie stitch didn't want to work. But I got new thread, got the Lizzie stitch working, and now we're getting along better. I've just done meandering, circles, and stippling so far but I'm not afraid of her any longer.

    Quiltinggranny,
    The Tin Lizzie is a long arm Quilting machine.
    Also someone asked me why I chose that one. My husband chose it. He talked to my dad who has one and decided it would be good. I had no idea I was getting it. Total shock.

    I have a friend who got a Tin Lizzie at age 80. She is now 82 and going strong... doing many quilts every week. I wish I had half of her energy.
