I talked to the HQ representative at the show and, of course, discussed price... it was a little too much for my piggy bank at the time but I vowed that I would save and save until I had enough! The HQ Sixteen sit-down WOULD be mine!!! It took me a little over a year but I saved what I thought would be enough so I contacted Sandy at the Sew Inspired Quilt shop. We discussed the price, my piggy bank wasn't quite full enough, but to my surprise she told me she had a demo that they had only used half a dozen times at different shows and in their showroom and she would happily sell to me for what I did have in my piggy bank. It was slightly used but to me, it has been a match made in heaven! I have done a lot quilting using stencils and some free motion stippling but the photos that I've attached are from my very first all over, free-motion quilted piece. There is no looking back now!!!
