  • free motion machines for art quilters

    I am looking for recommendations for machines. I want a sit down machine for doing detailed thread painting but would like a long arm for larger pieces. What do you use and what do you like? This will be a big investment and I want to get it right.

She also uses a simple mechanical machine. I have...

    My machines are all Pfaff and I have the Fabric Mover, which is the Pfaff version of the Fab-u-motion, and I love it.
