    I am looking into purchasing a used hinterberg frame for machine quilting. It's about 10ft wide.

    What I am trying to figure out is if I get shorter poles for it, can I reconfigure the frame to be maybe just 96" wide? Or is the frame a fixed width? anybody know?

    (I know , I know.. going smaller, what am I thinking? I am thinking it needs to fit in my craft room.)

    FYI - A 10' frame is only a queen size frame. King size are 11'+. Placed with one end against the wall, you could fit it into a 12' room. If the frame uses EMT conduit poles, like my Tin Lizzie frame, you can cut the poles down to whatever size you need.

    I don't have one but from what I learned at the quilt show this past weekend - I believe you can use whatever length of pole you can FIT.

    i was looking into that frame and you can use whatever length you whant as you have to supply the electrical conduit for the rails. maybe you might have to get another set of ends which you could order from the manufactorer

    I do and love it, yes it takes up alot of room,but I love being able to do whatever I want to on it. If you cut your poles, there is no way to put them back except to but new ones.

    My Hinterburg frame is currently set up with 10' conduit poles. The wall it is up against is 12', giving me a foot on either side to work. I also have another set of ends and poles for a smaller set up.
