First, let me say that I have experience using longarm machines. I think that makes a difference when considering the usefull of a review. I have owned a mid-arm and tested many of the upper end long arm machines at quilt shows. From my experience the LIzzie has superior control and response comparable with the A-! for example. There was no wobbling back and forth. I could easily retrace my stitch line when doing feathers. Smooth curves were easily achieved as well as free-hand straight lines. On similar mid-arm competitor models I did not feel that this was the case--I had to fight for control to retrace sewing lines and to acheive beautiful feathers that I was able to easily achieve on the Lizzie.

This is my first longarm quilting machine and I love the TinLizzie 18. I had difficulty doing quilitng on a regular sewing machine but with the TinLizzie 18 I can make a quilt without feeling like I have been in a wrestling match. The staff has been great providing information and tips and the Longarm Quilting instruction I have received has been excellent. Hats off to the Staff and Instructors at Sewingmachinesplus.com.
ABSOLUTELY LOVING THEM!!!

I've had my Tin Lizzie 18 for almost 3 years and have not had one minute's trouble with it. It sews great and the stitches are for the most part very even. Most of the errors have been mine. I live in a mobile home and didn't have much room so I had my poles cut to 5'. I only do lap quilts that are not more than 45" wide so this is no problem. My daughter and I quilt together and have quilted over 100 quilts so far and have been very pleased with the professional results. I'm still trying to master feathers but have been very successful with everything else including stitch-in-the-ditch. I would highly recommend this machine and the fine people at Sewing Machines Plus.

Before I bought my Lizzie, I went to sewing shows and tested all the long arms on the market. I was impressed with Lizzie's features for the price. It is light weight and handles easily. As a home quilter, it does everything I need it to do. The stitch is "perfect", I've been able to use many different kinds of threads, do lost of ruler work, use the panto board - can't say enough good about this machine and haven't had any problems that weren't caused by my inexperience. Customer service from Sewing Machine's Plus and from Tin Lizzie has been exceptional.

I am so impressed with this Tin Lizzy 18. I just finished this Silk Dupioni Baptism Quilt for my Grand-daughter and it was just beautiful. The Tin Lizzy 18 was so easy to use. Stitch Regulator worked like a GEM.
This was an excellent package. This is a must have for all you Quilter's out there.
Thank you Sewing Machines Plus for all your help, and great customer service.
