have u seen the short arm quilting machine yet?

"Can't afford a long arm quilting machine? Want that hand quilted look without spending all the time? The short-arm QUILTER is for you. This machine can hand quilt a king size quilt in minutes at over 3.5 sps (stitches per second).

Adjustable built in stitch regulator determines the stitch length.
Choose from these 5 settings:

Import . . . 2 stitches per inch
10ft test . . 6 stitches per inch
Grandma. . 8 stitches per inch
Amish . . . 12 stitches per inch
Husband . . Inconsistent"

What weight of thread do you use for the longarm. I thought 30, when I went looking for some on sale, they offered 40 and 60 weight.

I was looking for signature. Not sure the other brands or preferences.

I use mainly King Tut now. Not sure what weight it is but I love how it sinks in to the fabric instead of staying right on top. It melds with batiks beautifully.
