Hi, I am a relatively new quilter. I was all ready to buy a long arm. I picked out the one I wanted and my husband had agreed we could afford it. I went to the store yesterday and test drove one to make sure. You see, I have a pain disability, my neck is all screwed together, and I can't work anymore. Sewing, quilting, and embroidery, as well as other crafts, keep me sane. Well, 30 minutes on that long arm gave me so much pain that I was shocked. My neck and shoulders hurt very badly, even still today. I am so disappointed I have been crying off and on all day. I wanted it so badly. Sitting won't help, the pain is in my neck, and it is usually better for me to stand. I will have to continue to quilt on my embroidery machine, which I am lucky to have. I guess I just wanted to tell some people who would understand how I feel, how disappointed I am. If anyone has any suggestions they will be most welcome. Thanks for listening, and I hope to post better stuff soon.
