There is a lot of information about George at the APQS website.  It is quite different than other long arm machines because George operates like a domestic…you move the fabric under the needle instead of moving the machine over the fabric.  Basically the benefits are:  the table takes up much less space than a machine on a frame, you don't have to 're-learn' how to machine quilt if you can already do it on your domestic, it gives you MUCH more space under the throat than a domestic machine &  the initial investment is quite a bit less than most stand-up long arm machines.

 

The cons are: quilts still need to be basted before quilting, not a good fit if you are purchasing a long arm to quilt for others as a business, no stitch regulation or ability to attach a computer.  Hope this helps you make a decision.  George is a terrific machine and the used ones often sell quickly.  Nancy in Tucson (a George rep)
