    I didn't know much about this machine so I just did a quick glance and I must say you made a good choice. I didn't know you could buy a 15" quilter with a queen frame for less than $2,500! Amazing. Have fun with it. I'm sure you've earned it just doing what women do for everyone in their lives!

    I would be glad to let you know these things.

    I was amazed at the prices too. Especially since the other top brands run into the high teens in price. And sometimes that is just the machine. My set up minus shipping comes to $2100.00. The frame we found on CL a few months ago we paid $300 I think. And the machine was $1899.00 and the shipping was $50.00.

    I am such a spoiled brat.

    Can't wait to hear about your experiences with it! I really want to hear first hand from a newbie on a long arm. Congrats!

    You are not a spoiled brat,,, i'm sure you've earned it!!!!
    I've been away from here for a while,,, was just looking around,, and saw your post... I know there is a good video on YouTube with a woman i think named Debby,,, she does a super job showing her using this machine and yes, the google group will be very helpful...
    I actually called and spoke to "Chuck" at Bailey... THIS machine is the only one i will buy when i'm ready to replace my Janome 1600... it's on my Grace Pinnacle frame and i LOVE machine quilting... i only do "loop d loop" so far,,, but the 9" throat is constricting.... I will not upgrade until i "clean up my sewing room"... i'm a bit of a slob... just keep making and thing get piled up and it's just about to my boiling point, so i will not treat myself until it's cleaned up...
    I'm out of commission at the moment... a "golden years" issue with my back, hip, and i now have RA... so i'm a stewin' over that one...
    Chuck and i chatted.. that this machine is pretty much like the Singer 201,, that i LOVED way back in the day,, and the fact that it does NOT have a ton of bells and whistles... is what i LOVE... I will want the stitch regulator though... i do not have one now.. and realize it would be a big help when trying to work within a space....
    I wish you all the luck in the world with this... you are going to really enjoy doing you own tops in record time and not paying huge money to a longarmer...
    Sorry if i babbel.. just wanted to jump in... hugs Barbara...

    You will love it. The Bailey is easy to use and a lot of fun. I got mine for Christmas last year and love it.

    Oh!! I am so happy for you! I'm planning on getting one in the next month or two. I am still on th fence about which one to get though. I'd be interested in how you like yours after you get it and get aquainted with it.
    A finished quilt excites me!! Whether is it mine or yours!
