... and size matters to me! When it comes to quilting on my New English Quilter frame, my Juki 98P does the job fantastically. But, only with 9" sewing arm space!
So if you could stretch your machine, to achieve your dream machine, just how big a sewing arm would you have and why? Tell me what size you would want and why that specific size.
Me, well, the minimum would be 16" but ideally 18". When I'm quilting on the frame, by the time I get to the end of a quilt the rolled up quilted layers can be about 6" thick. That equates to a 6" loss of quilting space between the needle and the back of the arm. I'd like to quilt 12" blocks in one swoop of the needle and not roll the quilt back and forth to finish it. 18" would give me that freedom. What luxury!
So come on ladies,
tell me, what size matters to you, and how would it make all the difference?
