    Longarm quilting

    I'm a new longarm quilter with a Grace Inspira frame and a Juki 2010Q machine. I have a SureStitch Regulator as well. I have tons of questions about the little glitches I'm running into. Is there a group or thread devoted to LAQ? Quilters are such a wealth of information and I need all the help I can get!!!
    Thanks

    There's this thread. Are you a Longarm Quilter? Let's Chit Chat here! A bunch of others too, but this seems to be the place for general info.

    This is merely terminology, but the Juki is not a longarm. Longarms typically have 18" or more of throat space, while the Juki (if I remember correctly) is about 8.5". Some of the problems and techniques will be the same for the Juki and for a longarm, but many will be different. You may have better luck rephrasing your title to ask for information about quilting with the Juki on a Grace Inspira frame. There are lots of YouTube videos that may help you, and I think there's a yahoo group devoted to quilting on the Gracie, as well as several others for Juki users.

    You might want to join the homequiltingsystems group on groups.yahoo.com . It's a large, active group of quilters with a wide variety of frame setups, including ones like yours. As dunster mentioned, yours is really a shortarm setup. Midarms run about 13"-18", and longarms 18" and up.
