    I just realized I didn't post pictures of my new longarm in its new home!

    Please understand...the "shop" I have it in was a wood storage room on this house when we bought it 5 yrs ago. DH took everything but the studs down and built up from the floor up (used to have wood pallets for a floor!). We dedicated 1/2 of the room for storage. It was to be my stained glass shop. I couldn't get myself back into stained glass --- too much blood! So now, it's my quilting room. I've taken over 2/3 of the area. Since last Thursday, we took down the old Pfaff Grandquilter, took up carpeting, laid wood laminate flooring, moved the wall on the right back a few feet and reorganized the storage. It's amazing what I can toss after saving for so long!!!! This summer I'm going to paint the room and put some of my wallhangings up. I LOVE the Avante!!! Wow!!!!!!! Anyone know someone that would like a Pfaff Grandquilter with QBOT????

    BTW - that's not a "real" quilt on the machine --- it's my play quilt... :) I know it's not rolled on there right...... And sorry about the pictures -- I'm a quilter, not a photographer!

    I LOVE your "lady cave." I only wish you lived closer to me. I have been looking to purchase a used longarm, but quilting isn't as popular in South Florida as it is up north. GOOD LUCK

    Congrats. I love my longarm. It is so much easier on the body than a small machine. I can do larger patterns and outrageous feathers on the longarm. So I am always happy to see another quilter get one

    I have the Grandquilter and wish I'd held out for something like you just got! Before I'd even quilted one quilt, I could see that I'd rather have had an 18" throat! Oh well, I'll make do for now but you can bet I'm going to be saving up some money! Have fun with your new toy/tool!
