My new baby

is big and heavy, but just what I need, and it came in time to be set up for my birthday! It was shipped as freight, and I was told to have help available when it arrived. So what toes a mom of 3 boys to? She bribes her oldest son and some of his friends to help, and is amazed how strong they are. They decided to carry the whole crate around to the studio door, which turned out to be a very wise decision, because it was much easier to lift when using the wood framing, than once it was removed.
The quilting table came in that crate, and my new George quilting machine came in a separate box to protect it. One of them asked what I would need it for, and before I could answer, another asked him if he had noticed all the quilts they had passed in the house, and that was what the machine was going to be used for. Of course the boys had never seen a long arm quilting machine, and commented that I must be a hardcore quilter to get such a machine. So here it is, my new baby George!

How exciting!!! Congratulations. I have an APQS Millennium so I can tell you with some "authority" that you are going to lvoe George. These machines are built to last. I've had mine 3 years and everything that has been wrong with it has been user error in the end.
