    I just purchased a beautiful used Pinnacle frame, will do up to a King size. I've been dreaming of owning one for years, and it just appeared in my life now. I don't even have a mid or long arm machine yet so I will have to just use my Janome 10001 until I can save up enough.

    It comes with the leader cloths already attached, I will have to buy a stitch regulator if there is such a thing that will work with my Janome.

    Any owners out there that want to share hints etc.. I'd love your input, thanks.

    This is what I did to get a cruise control that works with my Janome Horizon.
    First go to:
    http://www.sewingpartsonline.com/foo...g-machine.aspx
    If this is the foot pedal for your machine, then write down all the Model # that it is compatible with.
    Then go to the Grace Frame Co site at:
    http://www.graceframe.com/site/machi...-speed-control
    Look at all the model #'s that it is compatible with and order one that both the foot pedal and cruise control will both be compatible.

    For instance: My foot pedal is the same as the Janome 6600, so I found the cruise control to fit the 6600 and it works on my Horizon.

    When you get the cruise control, plug it into your foot control port. Read the instructions to see how to set the switches inside for a Janome machine (there are 6 or 7 switches that have to be put in the right up/down order for it to work)
    Once it's adjusted, hit the button and be amazed!
    I love mine.
    No more holding the foot pedal in my hand or kicking it across the floor.
    I put mine on the handle of my Inspira frame carriage.
