I have been gifted with a longarm quilting machine! We drove up to central Washington in the middle of July to disassemble it and transport it back home. Then we had to wait until today for the service techs to do the reassembly and add a few features.
Now I have to wait for a new power cord for the computer and then for August 15 when I can take a class.
I have never laid hands on a longarm machine before and I don't want to break anything! I don't know how to load a bobbin, thread the machine, or anything.
I plan to spend a lot of time watching various YouTube videos to bring me up to speed.
I named it Sasquatch (Squatch for short) because it has a big footprint (bigfoot print)! The frame is 12 feet long and 4.5 feet deep. It has a 26" sewing head on it.
You'll no doubt be hearing a lot about this in the future - or at least seeing a lot of the resulting quilts!
