    Hi. My neighbor and I went "window shopping" and "test driving" yesterday at the local sewing shops. We checked out the Janome machines, Innovis, Baby Lock, and some others. Anyway, at the last place we went to, the owner told us that he has a customer who has a Baby Lock that she uses somewhat like a long-arm.... He said that she purchased (he wasn't sure from where) a table and put the machine on that, and then purchased a small frame that has wheels on it, and she can stretch the quilt sandwich out on the frame, and then roll it under the machine to do free-motion quilting. Does anyone know where to get a frame like that (on wheels)?? Or does this even make any sense?

    Thanks!

    I've seen this at quilt shows but cannot think of the name. You can mount a regular sewing machine on it and move it instead of the quilt for quilting. Seemed like a good idea but I don't have that kind of space to put it in.

    I have seen them too at quilt shows. The frame is wooden. I spoke with the inventor, it is a great concept. The bulk of the quilt is NOT in the throat of the machine, but on the take up roll away from the machine. I am going to try to load the quilts this way for my short arm, I think it will buy me more space.

    Here is the website for that particular guy (the one in the You Tube video): http://machine-quilt-frames.blogspot.com/

    There are others who make them as well, I am finding out. I'll post the others soon! Thanks!
