I think I’ve kept y’all in suspense long enough, though it hasn’t been intentional. Running a business is extremely demanding, but things are coming along well and I have settled in nicely both at home and in the office.
For the last several years I said my dream longarm machine was the HQ Amara. I played on it every time I went into Angela Walters’ shop, Quilting Is My Therapy. And I was so looking forward to being part of her LongAmy. But after months of trying to win an APQS longarm ( they gave a machine away every quarter last year!) I started comparing their features and prices with the Handi Quilter Amara. Then when I knew I was moving to Wisconsin, I decided it wouldn’t be as fun being in Angela’s LongArmy if I didn’t live in Missouri, so I started leaning more toward an APQS machine. And then I went to an APQS Roadshow – and that was all she wrote!
I got a fantastic deal on an APQS Lucey on a 12-foot Deluxe table w/overhead lighting and automatic quilt advance! And she fits perfectly in the basement of my new house!
Here are a few other pics of the new sewing room.
The only thing I’ve sewn/quilted in my new sewing room is the orange and blue quilt you see in these pictures. It’s a baby quilt for my new grandbaby. I just finished sewing the binding on right before I started this blog post. I’ll post a better pic of it later. I’m looking forward to more stitching/quilting time in the near future!
Until next time, Happy Stitchin’ & God Bless!
