    Quilting Frame-New Joy Gold Pro & Cons Please

    If any of you talented quilters have this frame and could share with me the pros & cons and maybe pics of your setup, I'd be sooooo appreciative. I'm getting ready to purchase a frame to go with the Viking Mega Quilter and someone has one of these that I can afford.
    Thanks,
    Brenda

    Brenda, If the Mega Quilter is an 18 in machine, I dont thing the New Joy will support it. It is really designed for a 9" domestic machine.

    Enjoy your new toy!
    Fabric is like money, no matter how much you have it's never enough.

    I have that set up with the Pfaff Mega Quilter. does it have the Cruise Conrol? I think it's a must have.

    That was my first frame and I really liked it. I had a Brother 1500 mounted on it. I just put it up for sale on craigslist myself as I'm now into something a bit larger. I like the 4th rail for the batting and the fact that it is completely self contained. The anodized aluminum frame is a snap to put together. Another person helps, but I did it by myself.

    Thanks to all that answered. I decided to go with an Imperial Quilting Frame from Inspira. I got a great deal on a used frame with a Sure Stitch Regulator to go with my Viking Mega Quilter. That way if I ever decide to upgrade to a longarm I can.
    Thanks bunches,
    Brenda
