    I need someone who knows long arm quilting frames to look at this

    http://pl.strima.com/quilting-frame-.../item/1033970/

    Can someone look at this picture and tell me if it is a certain brand of long arm frame? If so, what is the name?

    They don't give a lot of information about it and so I'm wondering if it is a certain brand where I could find more information about it in English.

    Strima? That's what it says on the side of the frame in the picture.

    If you go up to the top of the site where the search is there are different flags. Click on the brit one it translates the website into english. Hope that helps

    Maybe it is a frame that Janome supports. It looks like it is made out of plastic. I didn't see a price on it. You usually get what you pay for. So, be careful. I'd want something in English.
    Be the best that you can be at everything you do.

    Strima is the name of the company...it is a big company in Lodz (Poland) who owns the website. I wasn't sure it was the name of the frame or just the name of the company.

    I live in Poland. This may be almost the ONLY frame I've EVER seen sold in Poland--and they say it is "new to Poland". What would you do if you were interested in a long arm frame and lived here and were an American? Would it have to be in English? For me, no.

    I was wondering if it was something like a "Gracie frame" or something but they aren't telling us that since it means nothing in this market and certainly doesn't translate well into Polish.

    I have a friend with a Grace frame that is similar to this one, it came with her longarm when she bought it.

    I wonder if Geta could help you? Why not send her a PM. She is a member here, I believe she lives in Poland. I could be wrong though ;-)

    Hmm, I looked at a lot of frames when I was buying mine. I don't recall seeing a frame where all the rollers are in a single line. Seems like all the ones I looked at had the backing and take up rollers on the top and the rollers that held the top and batting under the frame. The handles are usually on the top, OVER all the rollers. (take a look at the Grace site's photos: http://www.graceframe.com/site/machineframes )
    Looking at the Strima frame, I don't understand how or where the batting would go. You can see how they have the top and backing attached, and the roller in the harp of the machine is the take up. Even if you just floated the batting, it would lay over the handles, which are mounted at the base of the trolley. I would want to see this in action, either at a dealership or a video. Maybe you roll the backing and batting on the roller together????
