Queen Quilter

I just heard on the news upstairs that we are getting 6-10 more inches of snow. Oh boy. It is a perfect time to be inside and quilting on a new project. And guess what I got for Christmas

This is the new sit down model of the the Tin Lizzie. I have been wanting a  mid arm machine for a long time. I have sat and tried all the different models and company’s at the quilt shows for the past three to four years. I have NEVER been happy with the tension or the price on any of the machines that I tried until now. I sat at this machine in Houston, and was really taken, but not ready to part with my money. Then I tried it again in Des Moines and finally bought it in Minneapolis. It arrived about a week ago and I am getting ready to really start using that 18” opening 1000 miles an hour motor and slick table to make some great quilted projects. I believe is a great machine at a great price! AND I got a table from Mike of Tracey’s Tables to go with all my other Tracey’s Tables sewing cabinets. I am one happy quilter.

Can I ask a question? What was the ballpark price on that? It looks like it would be a lot of fun!!! I want one.

Congratulations, Frieda! Will you share a few of the features that made you choose this particular machine? And from whom do you recommend purchasing this model? It's a beauty -- quilt in good health!

That is one serious looking machine! Have a great time playing with it.

I googled and googled but couldn't find any information about the sit-down version. Can you point me to a website? With the stitch regulator it looks like what I've been waiting for! Thanks and enjoy!

Becky asked what this baby cost, well here it is $3400, about $3000 less than any other com probable machine. And that INCLUDES the table!

I can't wait to hear your report(s) on how you like it after sewing on it for a few months.

I have to say - you were very right a bout that SewEzi table. I have really enjoyed it the times I've sat down and sewn with it.

Incredibly good price! Can you tell us where you purchased it?

Frieda said...

I purchased the whole thing at the Minneapolis quilt show. But I am sure they will be promoting it all the quilt shows this year. Or contact Tin Lizzie directly and tell them you are interested in the sit down Queen Quilter. www.tinlizzie18.com or 801-255-4130
