Longarm machines

A lot has happened on the longarm front in a relatively short period of time.

I've been thinking of getting a newer machine, and now it's going to happen!

This is my HQ16 how I had it set up before we dismantled and packed it up to move on to its new home.

I've been investigating the ABM Innova machines and have heard good things from people who own them.

But to see for myself, Priscilla went with me on a little road trip to visit At-Home Quilting in Johnstown, NY.
The shop is set up with three models.  This is the 18" Innova, but is similar to the 22" Innova that I've ordered.

I don't have a delivery date yet, but am hoping it won't be too far away.

Priscilla and I decided to treat ourselves on the way home and stopped in Weedsport for a wonderful salmon dinner.

The restaurant has this great mural in its parking lot.

So you went for it! I think you will love yours as much as I love mine!

Thanks, Carol! It's on its way from TX, and I'm looking forward to it!

Marcia, just saw your machine at the International Quilt Fest
in Manchester NH today and met the lady that sold it to you.
It looks wonderful and I am sure you will enjoy the width too.
