    the first frame i owned was a flynn frame and i had great success with it.

    i believe it to be a very inexpensive way to frame quilt and to develop your skills.

    i did a king size quilt on the flynn with a 6 inch throat machine. i used the flynn frame for about 16 months before i purchased a Grace Frame.

    I live in a very small house, so my Flynn Frame is a life-saver. I bought the kit, comes with 48" rods (now fiberglass, not metal) so it is light enough and maneuverable. One hint, which I discovered. Don't go all strong arm and tighten the fabric too much! I did and had fun making a "false" piecing line on the backing! I didn't want to leave a funny, lumpy spot in the fabric! And I wasn't really interested in taking out that much sewing (I can just hear my sewing teacher!) I have a large king size quilt started, I will be quilting it on the Flynn, in 3 pieces. I searched all around and this was also the best priced option. My other projects have been Quilt Runners, so the 48" width is good for that. Good luck and have fun!

    I have one. I put it in the middle of a six foot table and have plenty of room. It takes practice to get the hang of it. I was frustrated for long time but I kept on practicing. It's much easier to put the quilt on it then on a long arm, for me anyway.
    Got fabric?

    I purchased one this year at Paducah, tried it out in the booth and thought it to be very easy, I am about to try it here on a lap sized quilt for a Xmas gift. I so hope it turns out to be an easy process. Lol
