Innova Sit down quilting machine

I finally did it!  I purchased an Innova sit down quilting machine!

I've wanted to be able to quilt without wrestling with my quilts for a long time.  A few years ago, I bought a Bernina 820.  I'm a dyed in the wool Bernina fan, and I thought that machine was exactly what I needed and had coveted it for a couple of years.  It had the larger throat space that I wanted. But I couldn't change the bobbin thread and bobbin tension easily.  I was so frustrated by the inability to quickly and easily change the bobbin threads and bobbin tension that I sold it to a friend of mine who doesn't change thread in the bobbin all the time like I do.  She's much happier with the machine.

Since then, I've looked at several models of sewing machines with larger throat space, but they were mostly more sewing machine that what I wanted.  Then gradually a lot of companies started coming out with mid-arm quilting machines.  For quilters like me.

I know so many people that love their Innova long arm machines, and I heard testimonials from quite a few people who now use the Innova sit down model.  So when the local dealer was at our quilt show, I tried it out and loved it.  I knew it was just what I wanted!

I love it and I hope you will too!
