  1. Hi Katie. I haven't listened to the episode yet but had to pop by to say well done with the long arming. In the UK there is not really the opportunity to rent a machine, at least where I live – I would love a go. I am really impressed with your samples though and look forward to seeing the quilts you complete on it in the future. Many thanks C

  2. Nice Work Katie. I hope to learn longarming one day soon and plan to try out some long arms at the Long Beach Quilt Festival this weekend.
