  1. Ferret, You do understand what I am looking for. The size isn't an issue for me, I am fortunate that I have a large room in my home that I have turned into my studio, and it can fit the 14' table if I get it. Working on my quilts is my form of therapy, I enjoy it beyond words, and am just trying to work out my quilty feelings of spending so much money on a machine that most people see as nothing more than a "hobby" for me. I am still young, unmarried (waiting for a ring, though) and wanting kids, I can't help but think I should save money for the future. Money is not a huge issue for me, but it's always something on my mind.
  2. Thank you everybody so much for all your advice. I am still looking, still trying to figure out which will work best for me, and I appreciate everyone taking the time to comment and help me out. If, or more likely, WHEN, I decide to buy, I will post again with my decision. It's not going to be in the near future (tax season killed me), but I am hoping to be able to purchase within the next 6 months. Thank you again!!
  3. Yes, I looked into George, and I don't think it's the machine for me. When the quilts are large, they get bulky to maneuver, and I don't think I want to deal with all that. If I am going to spend a lot of money on a machine, I would be willing to pay a little more and and get one where I don't have to move the fabric under the needle myself. Thanks for the suggestion though:)
  4. I have many quilt tops that I can't quilt on my own, but I don't want to send them out to be quilted. I have been doing a lot of research into LA's, and I am astounded at the prices. I don't want to turn quilting into a business, I just want to be able to quilt my own work, and need advice as to which machines I should be looking into. I have machine quilted some smaller, baby quilts, but just can't do the big quilts that are waiting around to be finished. Any advice?
