Saying “Goodbye” to my Longarm!


Are you tired of moving all that fabric and batting through the throat of your domestic machine?  or thinking about doing quilting for a business?  I have a great machine for you!  I’m selling my 2011 A-1 923 Elite  longarm machine.  It has a 23” x 9” throat space with Stitch Rite Stitch Regulator and Ergo-grip adjustable Handlebars.  You are able to adjust the handle bars to an infinite variety of settings…and the right and left adjust independently of each other.  It is on a  10’ steel table with swivel castors, a batting access lifting lever, a batting storage bar, and has the Ergo Lift hydraulic lift system with remote control so you can sit on a stool or stand while quilting.   If you want to do pantograph work, it has a laser light and stylus and I will throw in a dozen or so pantographs.  It comes with the king base for ruler work and a ruler hopping foot and I can provide a few rulers and circle templates.  It uses the larger Type M bobbins so you don’t have to change bobbins as frequently. There is a separate bobbin winder that just needs a belt to work.  Included is  an assortment of needles (dozens) from 14’s to use for monofilament, silk, or bottom line, 16’s for SoFine, 18’s for 40wt such as Glide, King Tut, etc,  Jamie Wallen’s excellent DVD on “The care and feeding of you’re A-1 machine” which does a terrific job of explaining care and trouble shooting, a set of “leader grips” for pinless and quick loading of your quilt, and side clamps for side tension. That is hundreds of dollars of extras!   This was my personal machine and only used for my quilts and a few friends’ quilts. It is a very smooth running machine and has been well cared for.  I will be taking it down next week to make room for my new Bernina Q24.  Purchaser is responsible pickup, transportation and setup costs.  Location:  Paradise, TX.   $5,000.  If you are interested or have more questions email me at
