5 Steps to Finding Your Perfect Longarm Machine
If you’re looking for a new longarm quilting machine, you’ve probably come to realize that there are a lot of options out there. It can be overwhelming to narrow down the choices and find the right machine for you. Here is your Girlfriend Guide to 5 steps to help you find the right longarm for you.
Determine Your Budget:
The first step to finding the right longarm is to determine your budget. Longarm machines can range in price from a few thousand dollars to tens of thousands of dollars, so it’s important to know what you can afford before you start shopping.
- Consider Your Needs:
Once you’ve established a budget, it’s time to consider your needs. Are you a beginner or an experienced quilter? Do you plan on quilting large quilts or small ones? Are you looking for a machine that can do both computerized and free-motion quilting? These are all important questions to consider when selecting the right longarm.
- Research Your Options:
Once you’ve answered these questions, it’s time to start researching your options. Go into your local quilt shop or research online if you don't have a local dealer to find the price and features that best fits your needs and budget.
- Test Drive:
After you’ve narrowed down your choices, it’s time to test drive at your local quilt shop. Find a shop that has a large variety of longarm machines that you can try out. This will give you a feel for how each machine moves and handles.
- Make Your Decision: The final step is to make your decision. Once you’ve done your research and test drove a few machines, you should have a good idea of which longarm is right for you. Take your time and make sure you’re confident in your choice before you make your purchase.
Finding the right longarm can be a daunting task, but with a little research and guidance, you’ll be quilting in no time. Good luck!
