Yesterday I went to the Bayberry Quilters Show. I managed to find some tools and such that I had been unable to locate locally. I also had the pleasure of taking the "Tin Lizzie" out for a test drive.
I originally thought that I would have to learn to machine quilt before I purchased a long arm but I am now understanding that the two are different enough that it is not necessary. After all, you don't have to know how to ride a bicycle before you drive a car. This is the first one I have seen that I thought I could actually save for. Each week when I get my little paycheck, I put a portion of it into a savings account and this is what I am saving for. It had enough bells and whistles to make it easy to use but not more than I would ever use. There is even a storage area over the garage in our house plans that seems to be the perfect place for a long arm. I am planning on skylights in that area for additional light.
After all, it never hurts to dream.
