She was an early Christmas present according to my hubby. Pat went wild and traded in my old long arm, Ruthie, and bought the newest NV by Nolting. Here she is! Well, here she is before she was mounted on my frame.
Mike, of Memory Lane Quilting, and his wife, Bonnie delivered and set her up today.
Here are the two long arms -- the old Ruthie was taken off the frame. (Hum, she's hanging upside down on a holder in this picture.) Ruthie 2 is waiting in the background. Rutihe 2 is 24" while Ruthie is 18". And what is cool, Ruthie isn't going to be sitting around in a warehouse. Someone bought her right away. She'll be stitching away, doing her best, for another quilter.
A few changes had to be done to the frame before the new one could be loaded on the frame. And then she was put on the frame. Here Mike is teaching me what the buttons on the pad do. That's the blue pad on the head of the machine. And, wow this machine has some cool buttons. The black tablet on the right is the computer that drives the machine to stitch out patterns.
