    Are any of you all familiar with this frame? I've been to the website and it looks very nice for the money. I was just wondering is any one on the board has one. I would be using it with my sewing machine.

    The frame moves, so you need lots of room to either side of your machine. A frame that the machine moves on takes up less room.

    I have one and Love it!!
    You do need a certain amount of space toe work, but not as much as a long arm machine!!
    You can find them out there on E-Bay or such for a better price. I got mine for 35.oo on E-
    Bay. Someone passed and the person in charge had no clue what it was, sold it still in the box, never used.

    I had one and it wasn't a bad frame but I like to make large quilts so it didn't work for me. If you make crib size or smaller or have a very large area to work in it's OK. I ended up getting a Grace frame for my Juki machine and it works better for me. There are a lot of people on here who love them.

    I have the first version quilt frame (had to buy my own pvc pipe) and I have a hard time machine quilting with it, however, I use it for hand basting my quilts.

    There's a link on here where some made their own for less than $30 too.

    I had my DH make just the basic frame but I haven't tried it out yet.

    Could you elaborate a little Patti? Is the Grace frame a regular large long arm? Is your Juki just for this or do you do your piecing on it too?
