    Janome Horizon on a quilting frame - for those who asked for pics

    I have it on an Original Inspira frame that I altered to 1. spread the handles about an inch to accept the width of the Horizon and 2. extended the space between the rollers by adding 3" "repair bars". In these photos, I have the 'hood' off the machine, but I use it with it on again because of the amount of lint that gets into the machine when it's uncovered.

    Okay, so the Horizon has an 11" throat, correct? Do you think you could extend the frame even further to make it fit a 13 or 15 inch throat? Also I notice you have the handles going down whereas I have them going up. Is that so you can sit down to sew?

    They're available at hardware stores like Rona, Lowes', Home Depot. Usually in the area where they sell hinges.

    I didn't extend the bar distance more because that is all the carriage that holds the machine will move. Making the bars further apart wouldn't have given me any more room. Perhaps another frame could be stretched
    Yes, I did turn the handles down to sit and quilt. Good catch!

    I don't really know an answer to that. I just modified what I had to fit what I needed. Every frame/machine combination would present a different picture. Sorry.
