I saw a long-arm Singer double needle once (only a drawing) but it
seemed to have about 24" of arm, or something really huge like that..
I would LOVE to have that one, but I would bet it would be expensive.
Features I would want:
I have the auto-oiler, so that isn't a problem
Spool feed 'bobbins' Changing the darn bobin for
every long seam is a pain. Changing
in the middle of the seam is WORSE.
I have seen other types of machines that have 4 spools, 2 for top and
2 for bottom. This would be MUCH better..
