    Website that compares long arm machines???

    I think many months ago someone posted a website that lets you compare longarms. Does anyone remember that? My friend would like to buy one and there aren't any sold here and we are miles from any big quilt show - thought this website might help her. Thanks my quilting friends.

    All longarms come with some standard options and some that are optional. Options that may be necessary for some machines are just not needed with other machines because of their design. I've seen the spreadsheet comparisons, but I really don't think that's the way to decide on a longarm. You need to see it, touch it, run it, talk to others who have it. Join yahoo groups for the brands you're considering and see what the problems are that keep coming up and how they're solved. Renae Haddadin used to have an article on her site about factors to consider when buying a longarm, but I don't think the article is still there. I have a copy of it and her permission to share it, so if anyone wants that article just send me a pm with your email address and I'll send it to you. (Renae bought an Innova, and so did I.)
