    Fine tuned my tension and happy with the results. Here I'm playing with seeing how much control I can get....
    Can you tell "I love my machine"? lol and a pic of how it looks in my home. My other posting explains more, but this is a WOW quilting machine which they made from a "stretched" Singer 201. Here's some links for their site to explain how they do that.... http://www.wowquilts.com/machines.htm and http://www.wowquilts.com/page_one.htm
    So, if you're wanting a longarm....keep the faith. If I can find one for less than $1000, you can too! Craigslist is wonderful for finding bargains.

    Happy for you. I doubt I will ever give up space in my house for one. But I do envy you!
