    LA owners - is a 10 ft frame enough or should I invest in the 2 ft extenstion

    Will be buying my Crown Jewel at the end of the month, and it comes with the 10 ft frame. They offer a 2 ft extension - but it up front and be done with it or wait and see if I need it?

    My dealer seems to get things in pretty fast.

    If you plan on doing king size you may need the extra. I have a 10 foot and it's plenty for me but I only do king size rarely. If you have the room for it I would probably go ahead with the extra. I only had room for a 10 foot.

    I have a 10' frame and I can quilt just a bit over 100" wide quilt but I don't like going that big as I have very little space on the side for changing out bobbins and the side clamps. I only had room in my house for 10' frame. I have only had to turn away one quilt because it was too large for my frame.

    I have a 10' frame because the 12' would have been a tight fit. I have not had a problem as yet, but if I had had more room for the 12', I probably would have gotten it.

    If you have the room, and plan on quilting large quilts - go for it now

    I agree! I have 10 ft. 12 would be nice!

    If it's easy to add later, and if there's not a cost penalty, why not wait and see? I know I would want the 12', but I make a lot of larger quilts. It's definitely easier quilting when there is extra room on the sides.

    I have 12ft. It would be cheaper and less work in the long run to get the 12 if you have the room. A king on my ken'quilt and I have plenty of room.

    I have a 12' table/frame for my Statler and have needed the space more than once. If you have room for it, get the 12'.
