  1. George is sold.  I can't figure out how to mark it sold or remove it from this sight.

      Just edit your post and write SOLD behind Michigan in the title. Congrats. 

  2. Sharon, A test drive is definitely possible. I live in Beverly Hills, Michigan. A suburb of Detroit. Email me directly and we can set something up.
  3. Time for me to upgrade so I'm selling my 2013 GEORGE SIT DOWN QUILTING MACHINE. She's a steal at $3,500 and includes the following: Standard table L bobbin 2 hopping feet, open & closed 2 ruler feet, open & closed Horizontal thread holder 16 bobbins 12 pre-wound bobbins Travel case ($300 value) Will deliver up to 2 hours away from Detroit (or most places in lower peninsula), buyer pays to ship. Contact me (Diane) at:
  4. Sorry, I put the price on the tag but now it's in the body of the post too. I'm asking $4,000. I haven't used it very much. One king sized quilt, two - almost twin and about 5 baby or wall size quilts.
  5. Asking $3,750 Standard table L Bobbin 2 hopping feet (open & closed) 2 ruler feet (open & closed) Deluxe Sidewinder Bobbin Winder Horizontal thread holder 16 bobbins plus 12 pre-wound bobbins Assorted needles. Travel case - holds machine, not table Only used to quilt 1 king sized, 2 almost twin and about 5 baby quilts. I'm selling because I have decided to upgrade. Located north of Detroit, MI. I would prefer not to ship. You can reach me at
  6. I'm getting ready to sell my George and am wondering how to handle payment and delivery. Any suggestions out there?
  7. By the way, thanks for so much support. I'm already feeling the support.
  8. On my Bernina I like using Aurifil 50# cotton on top and in the bobbin or the Aurifil in the bobbin and silk in the top. I like the way lighter thread sinks in. I did buy a supply of King Tut to play with, I think it's supposed to be slightly thicker but stronger. I make mostly quilt bed quilts, frequently queens and kings. That sounds like I've made lots but it's over several years so my experience is limited. One thing that drew me to George is that he looks very simple to use, not too many gadgets. If it's just a matter of turning the tension dial occasionally maybe the M. If it means constantly fooling with it I'd rather go L. Make sense?
  9. To those that love the M, do you use cotton or silk?
  10. I just ordered George at the AQS show in Grand Rapids. I ordered it with the small bobbin case but am thinking maybe I should have gone with the big one. I plan on using mostly cotton or silk thread and Beth the rep I bought it from had reasons that I don't remember for the small one. Any thoughts, I'm about to make the call to finalize the order.
