Selling my Voyager

UPDATE:  I sold my Voyager today.  Laverne from southern Illinois is the lucky gal who gets my trusty machine.  Right now, the plan is to deliver it to her house on June 9.  I’ll be sending in the check on my new machine and hopefully can get it delivered soon afterwards.  Thanks to everyone who showed interest.  Laverne – you’re the early bird on this one!!  🙂


Yes, that’s right, I’m selling my Voyager.  While I was at Paducah (looking at my quilt hanging there!), I finally had an opportunity to test drive the last machine on my list – the A1 Longarm.  I absolutely fell in love with it.  When Elaine, the rep at the booth, told me the price, my jaw about hit the floor.  I walked away, but came back a few hours later and gave her a deposit to hold it for a few months.  In the meantime, I really do need to sell my Voyager.  It has been a great machine and will make a good machine for someone else.  So here’s the deal:

  1. *sigh* I want to buy this, RIGHT NOW!! 🙂
    But I live in AL (36207) Please email me privately to see if we can’t work something out.

  2. Very Interested. How far are you from St. Louis MO. I am in Michigan, but will be going through Illinois, and Missouri in the next couple of weeks.

  3. Are you able to do 12″ blocks on this? Does the frame have the “table” that holds the pantos? Do you notice the weight of this machine? Does the frame shake any?

  4. Sorry, forgot to ask, what is the maximum length of the frame when broken down for transport?
