That's great that you don't mind quilting king sized quilts with a 10" harp! Unfortunately, I don't enjoy doing the same, which is why I was asking about a machine with a larger harp. I agree that...

Good point. I shouldn't have let my frustration get the best of me. How about other ideas,that don't include keeping or getting another long arm?

I'm sorry for getting snarky everyone.

Thank you everyone!

Thank you everyone for your input. I think I'm going to call my dealer next week and see if she will work with me. If not, I'll have to figure out how to sell my long arm before I do anything else.
