George longarm quilting machine

George's generous 20" throat space means you'll never again have to struggle with squeezing quilts through a small space. When you're done quilting, George's table folds down so it can be conveniently stored.

George's touch-sensitive foot pedal lets you place stiches precisely where you want the, even on stitch at a time.
