  1. Your quilting is beautiful. It truly complements the quilt.
  2. I am interested in your Freddie. I live in western Wisconsin and would like to know where in Minnesota you are located. You may contact me at sosallap@gmail.com. Thank you. Pam
  3. Are you happy with your Lucey? I have some of the same questions that you did.
  4. Thank you for taking the time to respond. Your advice is appreciated. Pam
  5. Jim, thank you for your input. I have been watching the forum for used machines, however, many sellers require the buyer to pick up the machine from a location that is miles from my home in west central Wisconsin. I assume that hauling twelve foot rails would require a trailer. Also, the asking price of some used machines is almost the price of new. Then, I wonder if I should should be looking at a Freddie or Millie, to have the ability to upgrade to "Glide."
  6. Thank you Cagey, Betsy, Sue, and Sewingpup for your thoughtful responses. I have been checking for used machines as well. I guess that I am leaning toward the Lucey (with the deluxe table, bliss, and auto fabric advance.) My husband thinks that is the one I should purchase as well. Now I just need to find a spot for her. Pam
  7. Thank you for your response. I have not long armed before, other than trying out the machines for a few minutes at an APQS show. There are no dealers in my area to try anything out, especially right now with Covid. However, I think that I would like long arming. One, plus for Lucey: I just completed a quilt composed of 12 inch squares on point. I would not be able to complete one full block using the Gallant/Moxie because of the throat space. From what I garner, there would only be about an 11 inch width of usable space. But, I suppose I could divide the block in half and do half at a time. It is good to know that you are happy with your Lucey purchase. Maybe that would be my best bet, despite the difference in cost.
  8. In need of advice. I am new to long arm quilting and torn between Lucey or the new HQ Moxie (same as Babylock Gallant). The Moxie costs around $5,000, whereas the Lucey (with Bliss, upgrades, delivery, sales tax) is about $15,000. (I recently put money down to hold a Lucey during the recent sale.) The Moxie has a 15 inch throat with a 8 foot table (expandable to 10.) It includes only the bare essentials, but seems like a solid machine. I retired several years ago and began quilting as a hobby and would use the machine to finish my own quilt tops. I don't really plan on making large size quilts. I am thinking that if I purchase the smaller Moxie, I might be sorry because of the smaller throat size. But, for the difference in cost, it might be all that I need. Any thoughts?
  9. Shirley, I am interested in your machine. I live near LaCrosse, Wisconsin. Please let me know if it is still available. Thanks. My email address is sosallap@gmail.com Thanks. Pam
  10. Daisy0522, I am interested in your Lucy and have a few more questions. I live about 35 miles south of Eau Claire. Please contact me by e-mail or let me know how to contact you. Pam
  11. How long is the table? Did you purchase this as a new model in 2014? Would you be able to ship?
  12. Hello, Resilient Quilter, I am interested in your Freedom, if it is still available. You may contact me at sosallap@gmail.com. Thanks, PKS
