Thank you for your understanding during the Covid Crisis, I appreciate each and every one of you! Jill "Why Innova" by Duane Churchill (Mr. Ta Da) It's been 10 years now since my wife, Jill, decided it was time to buy her first longarm quilting machine. To her credit, this was not an impulsive decision, she knew a longarm was a large investment and she didn't want to make a common mistake that she found others had done. They had bought machines that left them frustrated because they did not meet their needs or were unreliable. The machines were left unused or they had to be replaced. We wanted to buy our "last longarm first." To be sure, she networked with longarm owners she knew, she studied online recommendations and she specifically asked owners about the dealer support they had recieved after they had made a purchase. It wasn't long before her list of possible machines was narrowed to two. Both products had good reputations, one was long established and the other was relatively new to the market. Jill asked for my advice. I had over 20 years experience in the tool and die field and knew good engineering and quality build techniques. After viewing both machines I told her the Innova was clearly the best built machine. I was really impressed. She bought her first Innova. After 10 years of constant use, first in our home and then in our Studio as a rental machine it is still going strong. In the 10 years since we purchased our first machine Innova has continuously improved their products and are still the best engineered and built longarm systems available. Coupled with excellent company and dealer support they are still the best way to assure you "buy your last Longarm first."
