    Has anyone used a Handi-quilter frame with the optional handles? I am trying to set mine up and can't seem to figure out in my mind how to attatch them together. Frame is set up and i am ready to try my hand at finishing one of the many projects i have.A picture would be great.

    There is a frame that goes around the machine, it attaches to the carriage. Do you have that complete? The handles attach to this frame, either front or back.. your choice.

    I'll see if I can find a photo of my old set up..

    I couldn't find my photos but I did find some on the internet.

    Handles attached directly to the carriage, no frame needed.

    don't have the frame and can't seem to find one either.i was thinking the handles attatched to the flat thing the machine sits on?? I know the company is out of business so trying to "invent" something??
    If you have a pic, please send. Thanks!

    You don't have to have the frame around the machine unless you are wanting to move the machine standing at the head. Other wise you can attach the handles to the back of the carriage.. If you want a frame it can be made using pvc piping from your local store.. I can get you the dimensions if you want them.. I have a frame in my closet, (sorry not looking to sell, saving it for future use)..

    a picture would really help. Hubby was thinking he could do something with PVC.That would be great!
    Thank you!

    could you give me the dimensions? This is facinating me to try to get this done.
    Sorry to be a bother, it's just I have so many unfinished quilt tops here and there is no one where i live that can quilt or that i trust ;)
    thanks again for all your help!
