    We are the proud owners of a Nolting longarm with a SideSaddle computer. Just curious how many longarmers are out here already and how many plan to buy.... Anyone that WOULD NOT longarm and prefer to hand stitch?

    I bought a Tin Lizzie 18LS in Feb. No computer, I wanted to learn to the manual way first.

    My wife and I have a mid arm...we do a thriving business...I make tops...she does the quilting machine...and I do the binding when it needs to be completed, rarely is there a time that we don't have someone's quilt to be done. We have our eye on a Gammil , when our pockets are full enough.

    In my dreams I see an Inova, no computer but with stitch regulator, but reality says maybe an older used model with no stitch regulator and no computer.

    I love hand quilting too and always have a smaller project laying around. I just have too many projects to realisticaly do then by hand.

    I have a Tin Lizzy, had it for a couple years now. Love it, bought it cause I was going to open a quilt store. Figured it would be a good one for people to rent. However life took a turn and store didn't get opened. I have a awesome machine though :)

    I just became the proud owner of an Avante also. Any idea who gives lessons. I am a beginner and in need of help learning how to use it for more than stippling and continuous pantos.

    I have a Tin Lizzie 18 and love it - still not brave enough to quilt someone else quilt.

    I have a Gammill Classic and have been machine quilting for 18 years. I am always busy, either repairing, making a custom quilt and mostly machine quilting. I always have customer quilts in my studio. There has not been a time I have not had one in the studio to work on other than all my own that I don't get finished. Some day!! I enjoy my work.

    I have a Bailey's 17. I'm fairly new to it but moving along quickly on the learning curve and plan to quilt for others someday soon.

    I dream about having one...does that count?

    I am in awe of the talent out there! I wish I knew someone locally who owned one that could adopt me and teach me all they know! Unless I hit the lottery, I don't expect to ever own one. :( I'll just have to sit back and admire the work of others.

    I have a Gammill with a Statler Stitcher computer, and I'd trade my HUSBAND before I'd trade my machine! :lol: :lol: :lol:

    I just got a Husqvarna Viking Mega Quilter 18/8 and so far am having lots of fun. No computer for it in the near or distant future. I wanted it to FMQ & meander.
