Sweet Sixteen...


Saturday found me back in Portland at the
Machine Quilters Exposition....


This is what lured me back:



Handi Quilter Sweet Sixteen
Sit Down Long Arm Machine

I like the Touch Screen Display and the Big Class M Bobbin.
You can set the speed, Needle up/down, the brightness of the light
and the foot pedal is so responsive.

My 100 inch quilts will be a breeze on this big machine!


Lucky for me, my favorite guy came along:


He loaded up the table and the machine and we are on our way!





Winding our way through the convention center...





We found the elevator...





Just barely enough room to squeeze onto the
elevator...





Getting off the elevator down in the
Parking Garage...




Finding our way back to the pick up...





Just enough room to slide in the table...





Everything is loaded up!



It looks like we have a new Driver...


Gunnr is in the Driver's Seat





The whole family came along to pick up the new
Sweet Sixteen

I am busy cleaning and organizing the Thread Shed to make room for the new Sweet Sixteen machine. I found a home for my old sewing cabinet to make room for the new table. When I get everything set up and get a quilt under the needle, I will take more photos.

I've have the standup 16" HQ for about 5-6 years now. I absolutely love it. I can litterally used any kind of thread and have almost no tension problems. It's easily the best investment I have ever made. Enjoy yours! I know you will!
