You know the government Michele, they have to have their "sticky" hands in everything that goes on!  I'm sorry its going to take so long for your new room to be put on.  Just remember ..... good things come to those who wait.  LOL

Glad I live out in the county. We can pretty much do as we please when it comes to building. I just saw that Juki in a magazine. Looks good. Don't blame you for going for the good price.

I test drove the juki for about five minutes at the Jacksonville show last fall, loved it but was unsure since it was new out but it's been on the market for a while now and everyone seems to be saying really good things about it. I liked that the quilt shop does all the servicing and they are only 20 minutes from my house, that was another big selling point for me. will let you all know how I like it as soon as I get it installed and use it, now to get some quilt tops made while I wait for it to come in.

Having the shop close will be a good thing. Hopefully you will never need them but if you do........

To me that's a big plus.  That's what I'll be looking for if and when I ever go to invest in one.

I'm a little jealous because I have a machine, but have been busy with Christmas garment sewing and then vacation garment sewing, so haven't been able to get at quilting another top.

Tomorrow is supposed to be the day for the quilt frame but the quilt shop said they would call and confirm the appointment when I scheduled it and they didn't call. hopefully they show up tomorrow afternoon, I should have called the shop today before they closed but got busy and by the time I thought of it the shop was closed and they aren't open tomorrow. fingers are crossed and saying an extra prayer tonight that it was just an oversight and they show up at my doorstep tomorrow.

It's all set up and he gave me a quick lesson on the quilt motion may have to take a few classes at his shop though. still need to put the leaders on and thread the machine. I also got a product from Nancy's Notions called red snappers, it is a pole and clips that you make a hem in the end of your leaders to feed the plastic pole thru and then the quilt top, batting and quilt back just snaps onto the frame. He said you can load a quilt onto the frame in five minutes. here's one picture if I attached it correctly. if this works I'll attach another one.

my brain is overwhelmed, got a lot to learn before I can say I'm good at this machine, a little intimidating right now but I'm going to jump in with both feet and try to learn it.

Got the leaders on the frame and marked center on each one. Not a very productive day had eye doctor appointment and they dilated my eyes taking forever for them to return to normal hoping to get muslin and batting loaded tomorrow so I can play with the quilt motion

I could use those leaders. My least favorite thing is to load the quilt. If I had zipper leaders or something like that I would be happier. Going to have to get those.

yes it's computerized and there is a table for pantograph. Juki teamed up with Grace Company to put this package together Grace makes the frame and the quilt motion software for the new Juki 2200 QVP didn't know that until they come to set it up it's not advertised as a Juki/Grace combo. The pattern perfect boards from Grace will work on the table for pantographs or you can use a laser with paper pantographs on the table.

Does your machine use digitized patterns and if so what are your extentions?

I'm not sure, have never used the computerized part before. It's different than an embroidery machine but comes loaded with over 200 patterns and you can draw your own patterns too. I am using mine with the Microsoft Surface tablet. You can unplug the tablet from the quilt frame and use it in simulation mode and prepare the quilt how you want it quilted and then take it back to the frame and plug it in, set your safety area and start stitching. so far I have learned how to set my safety area and print a pattern within a block. I'm reading the help guide in the quilt motion software to learn it. The quilt shop I bought it from gives lessons but I work on the days of their classes. I can take private lessons on Saturdays if needed but they are expensive so we'll see how far I get on my own. If it get stuck I'll give in and pay for the lessons.
