|My old quilting frame.|
After trying out a few different models at a local quilt show, I set my sights on a Gammill. Every 3 months or so, I would go on an all night binge of searching the web for a used longarm in my part of the world. After flirting with a couple of machines, I have finally found the one for me! A Gammill Classic with a 14' long table and no stitch regulator. She absolutely purred when her former owner let me play on her for the afternoon. (Thanks, Carol!) Ah, love.

|She sews such nice curves.|
Moving it was quite an ordeal, mostly due to the fact that I had to drive a 20' U-Haul across California. Dis-assembling and re-assembling the behemoth wasn't too hard, unless I put it together completely backwards, which is possible.
As you can see, I no longer have a living room that can be "lived in" by anyone other than me and my new baby. And, like many new parent/child relationships, we're having a few issues. So, for the near future, I will probably be a little more stressed out than usual, and I'll probably be tearing my hair out just a little bit...but I'm confident that we'll be purring along again soon!
