    Just found a great price on the Brother 1500 & The Grace Start Right (queen) quilting frame. Does anyone have this frame. If so pros & cons. This will be a first for me, so I'd like to get it right. grin. I don't even know what questions to ask. LOL.

    be sure and look at the reviews on the Brother 1500. The grace frame has a good reputation. Ask if the seller includes the leaders and clips, etc.

    Looks like a good set up for starters. You ought to be able to upgrade to a machine with a larger throat for more quilting space, if and when you want/need one.

    Leader clothes are easy to make. Check out Grace site to see exactly what you will need before you start.

    The only complaints Ive heard are about wooden frames.
    Mine is a metal Imperial and a nice frame.

    I have a 4 year old Grace GMQ Pro frame that is essentially wood. It is in the basement (finished lower level) and there have been no problems. I have had to replace the tracks. Seems what Grace was using 4 years ago did not last. there is a Grace Machine Frame group on Yahoo and it has been discussed as how to buy and install metal that will make a quality, long lasting track. Shipping seems to be a problem for Grace, so they tend to use a flexible plastc that can be coiled, but in winter sub-zero weather, the track is cracked. I have a 3rd set of tracks on my frame.
