Subject:  Any long-arm quilters out there? Date:  12/9/2013  2:50 PM

I'm lusting after a long-arm machine, and wondering if anyone on here has one. They are pricey, and it would only be for my personal use, so I'm not even sure I can really justify the cost, but I'd like to at least learn about them. Right now, I do all my own quilting on my sewing machine, so that's some stitch-in-the-ditch and some free-motion quilting, but I've seen what the long-arm machines can do, and they are amazing.

I do plan to visit the local HandiQuilter shop and get some information, but I'd love to hear from folks that might have one. What do you like? What do you not like? What features are must-have, and what are just nice-to-have?

Anyone have any input? I do follow a HandiQuilter group on Yahoo as well.
