I cannot even remember that last time I did some longarming . . . maybe the end of March? I just love my HQ16 - even after it sat for two months, I was able to start it up and begin to quilt without one problem! My friend Carolyn needed her signature quilt for a family reunion in mid June and we are leaving early next week for 2 weeks to go visit our other grand girls in Rhode Island. I have one more quilt for another friend that I hope to get loaded tomorrow.
