    It was donated to my hand quilting group but the person is no longer available. No one can figure put how to load it. It appears to me as if it is a three roller frame and very well made. There are absolutely no markings on it at all to indicate which manufacturer made it, which seems strange. Anyhow, I am going to try a picture. Any info from you knowledgable people will be much appreciated

    I have never seen the frame before, It is a really good looking one from what I see in the pictures, it is vary similar in design to the frame I have for my machine. I would imagine that it loads very similarly.

    Not sure, but it looks like it might be an older Hinterberg frame. Does it have black plastic knobs to turn the ratchets?

    Try doing a Google of "images" for quilting frames to see if you can find one that looks like it.

    There are 3 poles with ratchets, right? If so, I think it would load like any other 3-pole hand quilting frame. There might be a Youtube video on how to do that.

    I was thinking that it looks like an older model Grace Frame.

    near as I can tell, the side with the 2 poles is the front. Your backing should go on the lowest roller and your top on the upper roller and your batting floats between the rollers. The back roller is your take up roller.

    It looks like a Hinterberg type but is probably homemade. You would load it like any other frame. The backing will go on the roller with the white leader and the roller closest to that one. WSU. The batting and top will go on the front roller and attach to the backing attached on the white leader.

    I thought maybe it was older because of the wooden rails; the new ones all seem to have lighter weight metal rails.
