I finally have given up on my wonderful home quilting frame system. It has beaten me and I don’t have the patience anymore to use it. It was doomed from the start.
When I first got the frame pieces back in January it was missing 3 legs. So, I had to wait 3 weeks to get the legs to fully set it up. Then, the stitcher regulator wasn’t working at all, so it took 3 months for it to be returned to me. With all this stuff over the past 5 months it hasn’t been worth the price or time.
So, being it’s still under 12 months I can take it back and get an “upgrade” to a new machine. I’m going to shoot for a Sapphire 850 and maybe a Designer 1, which means I will be selling my other machine to compensate in the price and sewing area space.
Maybe one day I will get a full long arm machine set up, but not until I have used one in person. I think I’m going to see if the boss at work can teach me the one we have there and see if it’s just me or the system I purchased. Don’t get me wrong, I still love my mega quilter and will most likely keep it for quilting, but the frame is going. It’s been 5 months since I brought it home, I’m done.
So, I’ve been online surfing to see prices and what services are available for finishing my quilts. I have so many that need to be completed. I wish I knew someone personally who owned a long arm machine.
Oh well, back to cleaning up.
