  1. LOCATION: SOUTHEAST MICHIGAN / NEAR WINDSOR, ONTARIO I purchased this machine and cabinet in December 2010 for $7,900... I believe the higher price reflects the cabinet that is no longer offered (see pix). Before he arrived, I was diagnosed with breast cancer, and although GEORGE was set up, he has NEVER been used. As you can see from pix, he is a true Silver Stud with his name emblazoned in Red. What a look! And the old-style cabinet (also new, of course) features four storage drawers of wood construction. Please know that--as a 2010 model--he does not accommodate the "M" bobbins (only "L"), nor can he deal with interchangeable feet without a retrofit. I am told that the retrofit is "no big deal," but I don't know enough about this subject to discuss it intelligently, so you'll have to do your due diligence on this site. Also, his original equipment includes a clip-on light that plugs into the machine, a bobbin winder, instruction book, and bobbins. I know that there are many "suitors" who prefer the "industrial look" of the pre-2011 GEORGE, as well as the substantial, old-style cabinet, which is more of a piece of furniture, but does not fold away. (This higher-end cabinet may account for the [higher] 2010 price of $7,900.) I am offering this never-used, late 2010 GEORGE at a firm price of $4000, local pick-up only.
  2. Hello, my name is Anny, this is my first post, and I am totally new to machine quilting, having only hand quilted. My husband and I are finishing remodeling so I will finally have a small area to call my own for sewing/quilting. With as many projects as I have to complete, I decided to turn to machine quilting. I have looked at and tried several sit-down quilters and had about decided to purchase a George. Then I came across the Gammill Charm on the internet and noticed there were two options in size, an 18 -8" or a 22 -10" (I believe the depth/height of George is 20 -8"). I have not seen this machine in person just yet as the nearest distributor is about 1 1/2 hours away from me. Has anyone seen this machine, and can you tell me how it compares to the George? I would really appreciate any information you can give me? Thank you.

  5. Hey everyone, looking to sell a used, but in great condition, George quilt machine. Has not been used much at all. New price is $6650 looking for $6000. email with questions/concerns/offers/ etc. Thanks!!
  6. I just finished designing, piecing and quilting this on my George. I guess I like variety in free motion. This was a lot of fun to quilt. I don't know how good the pictures are, though.

  9. My 83-yr old mother pieced this top (April-November 2012), and I had the honor of quilting it on my George (Nov-Jan 2013). This is a Sue Garman designed BOM that my mom added borders onto so it would fit her twin beds when pushed together. All finished and laundered, it measures 100" x 122". I used W&N batting and Superior thread (Bottom Line & Magnifico).
