I just got my NEW long arm quilting machine by Innova!!!! I am simply SEW excited! This is utterly amazing! I have always wanted my very own long arm but it was difficult to justify. I finally sold enough fabric to save up and buy the machine! I am in seventh heaven. Waking up each day starting a creative project and then finish it on the long arm will be incredible! I don’t feel like able to quilt my quilts with my domestic machine anymore…. not with all the things that I day-dream to do! Wow this will be a learning curve but Innova has a week-long course on how to use the machine and make it WORK! When they installed the machine they gave me a mini lesson. I have my good friend Renae Haddadin, that is an expert award-winning machine quilter. She ordered the exact same machine as me and she said that she will help me too!
The long arm machine I purchased was the Innova Quilting System 22″ with the lightning stitch regulator. Renae Haddadin is now a dealer for Innova Longarm Sewing Machines and an award-winning expert in long arm quilting.
Exciting days, months and years ahead! It feels good to be creative and create.
Here is a video of me purchasing the machine at the Home Machine Quilting Show(HMQS) in Salt Lake City Utah in May of 2010!
