    I am thinking about getting a machine quilting frame. What are some things I should consider when purchasing one? This
    needs to be an affordable frame for home quilting. Any suggestions? Thanks for any info you can provide!!

    You need to try some out. Buy the best you can afford.

    i have the grace pinnacle frame and i'm very happy with the purchase.

    i got mine used on craigslist - it worked out perfect because she was only selling the frame and all the accessories and keeping her machine.

    i didn't want a used machine - just the frame.

    Yes I have a Grace Pro, but have no place to set it up yet.
    It is still in pieces and truthfully, I am quite intimidated when considering using it.

    I don't have a machine for it yet either.
    I got the frame off of a lady on Craig's List.

    I have the Grace Mini Pinni frame. Very affordable. I put my Juki sewing machine on it and love it.

    Do check "Topics" at the beginning of this page and look for quilting frames for machines...maybe do a "Search." Seems to me there is a LOT of posts on this subject right here at the ready.

    Make sure you are willing to dedicate the space to it. They are wonderful but you can't really move it around much. And no matter what they take up more space than you think they do.
    Great when your using it but a pain in the arse when your not. =)
