    Default Dreaming out loud.... Of a longarm and frame

    If I ever bite the bullet and go full tilt into this lovely hobby (make it a biz?) I can't decide between an APQS machine or an A1. I'm leaning towards the A1 longarm, but would love feedback from anyone here who owns one.

    Since you live in Florida, I'd contact Martelli and go look at theirs......it appears to be one of the absolute best I've seen (not in person, but in all the reading I've done) and that is the one I would buy.

    I saw a Martelli in a shop in Columbia, MO. I got a short product presentation by the proud owner of the shop, it looks so different than any other because the frame suspends the machine instead of letting it ride on carriages. It must be totally wonderful to work on. I would definitely look into their machines.

    I owned an HQ16 and then purchased an APQS Millenium. To me the APQS is one of the best with support and tutorials. HQ has very good support and tutorials too.
