a new horse has been added to my stable

 What do you think? Pretty big huh? I have wanted to branch out with my quilting for some time now. With this baby I will be able to. I fiddled around with her for about an hour today and I think she is just the thing. It is absolutely stunning how quickly you can quilt a quilt with a long arm.  She is a  Gammill Long arm and has been in storage for a while, so I assume she will have some kinks to work out, but I can't wait to start quilting my quilts with her! When I am ready I will be quilting for others. This frame is tremendous, so I will be able to quilt up to king size quilts on her. Please let me know if you would like me to quilt one of your quilts.

Have a great day!

Tia

not only do I want a long arm.........I NEED a long arm. I have at least 12 quilts sitting there waiting to be quilted, 6 more just needing backs, and at least 6 more on the working on it at the moment table. I can't afford to pay someone else to quilt my quilts. A lot of them are King sized too!! So I am JEALOUSSSS!

Congratulaltions! I know you'll get tons of commisions. You're TERRIFIC!

Oh thanks ladies! I really am so excited I doubt I will sleep tonight. If you are in the area (or live nearby when we move in a year,) I am more than willing to let you rent her and quilt your own quilts! Cool, huh? I remember asking to rent time on a long arm and being looked at like I was a lunatic.

Oooh, I'm jealous, I've been wanting a longarm for ages. We're only just starting to loot at a bigger house with a bigger studio, so fro now I'm planning to upgrade to a Bernina 820 in the meantime. I think that's what you've been quilting on - have you had any problems with it at all?

Katy said...

Um - yes. I really would like you to quilt a quilt for me!
