Madison Quilt Expo

I went on a bus trip to the Madison Quilt Expo yesterday. My plan for the day was to test drive longarm sewing machines. I did set aside some funds just in case I found any great fabrics, but I didn't really plan on purchasing anything.

I don't know why I even think that I won't buy fabrics. With the many fine fabric shops represented at the expo I cannot resist. I found so many pretty things. I even found Pete the Cat fabrics!

I also completed my mission of test driving longarmers. There were at least 10 vendors there and I spent time on the Bernina, Block Rockit, Nolting, Tin Lizzie, Avante 18, Innova 18, and the Gammill. The funny thing is that I was headed to the APQS booth when I stopped at the Gammill. My original plan was to skip that booth thinking that they were out of my price range. As I waited for time with the APQS people, I thought I would kill time with the Gammill rep. The test drive was amazing. I mentioned my concern regarding pricing only to find out it was much more reasonable than I ever expected.

At the end of the day, I narrowed my choices down to two. I have a lot of things to take into consideration before I finally decide. Then there's the issue as to where to install it. I have two places it could go so I'll have to figure that out.

This is such an exciting time!
