I've been debating what to do about my longarm when we move. Because we want to live downtown - the options we're looking at for housing won't accommodate my longarm PLUS my sewing machine, cutting table, and fabric all in a single bedroom.
So, I've decided to trade in my Classic Plus on a 12 foot table for a Premier Plus on a 10 foot table. Because I only quilt for myself and family and don't do any quilting for hire, I know I can make this work for me. I don't quilt many king size quilts and when I do have the need to - I can always quilt them in two pieces and then assemble them using *quilt as you go* methods.
I'm sure this move to Minneapolis won't be our last move over the next 10+ years and I think by downsizing my machine now I'll have more flexibility with this move and with any future ones.
