  1. Hi Cindy, Yes the $4000.00 includes Shipping. It would be shipped freight and they deliver to your driveway/ garage. This is the same way that I received my George when I purchased him directly from APQS. As far as set up, there isn’t much to it. I didn’t have a local dealer that had a George ( purchased at Houston show) so my husband and I unpacked him and had him all settled in less then an hour. ( I have the manual printed for easy reference and will include that along with the disk )George is one of the simplest machines on the market. Only one tension knob for your upper tension and the usual bobbin tension adjustment. Included is the L size TOWA guage for checking your bobbin tension. I would be happy to speak with you if you have any concerns and give you a few pointers that I feel helped me transition from my domestic to a sit down longarm. The only reason I am selling George is because I purchased a stand up longarm. Thanks for your inquiry. I included my phone# in the post. I probably won’t answer at first bc of not recognizing your phone #( telemarketers) but if you leave me a message I will call you back as soon as I can. Debbie

  6. Hi Vicki Haven't tried it on George, but I would think its do-able. Are you doing free standing on an organza? Or thinking a heavier fabric?
  7. Congrats with your new George, your going to love him!
  8. Thanks for all the great input- take home is all are great- but if going with the heirloom go by the roll- lays nicer?? I guess my next question is do a lot of you use 2 layers when quilting with wool a lot?? I have a few people say poly and wool, or 80/20 Hobbs and layer of wool? Thanks for you guys wealth of info!
  9. Hi All, I have a question as to what brand of wool batting do you love best and where do you usually order it if buying by the roll?? Thanks! Deb
  10. Your quilt turned out lovely!! On the subject of Filtec magnetic bobbins- I check every bobbin on the Towa gauge as quite often they are over wound and come off the bobbin at a very uneven tension. Unfortunately I do waste some thread- but once the tension evens out( not bouncing all over the place) then I adjust the bobbin tension according to were my machine likes to live ( wasting a bit of thread is better then ripping) I think Linda mentioned in an earlier post that sometimes the inside of the bobbin can have a little burr in it that you can remove with an exacto knife. All good advise about adjusting your tension, but sometimes the problem is in the bobbin
