Default Converting Sweet 16 Sitdown to a Standup Little Foot Frame

Have any of you converted your HQ Sweet 16 into a "longarm on a frame"? Much like a Simply 16 set up? If so, are you happy with it? I have been "lusting" over a Simply 16, but just can't justify the $$$. However, if I could convert my Sweet 16 and get all the "whistles and bells" as on a Simply 16 for less than half the cost, that might be doable.
Any advice or comments will be welcomed.

The Sweet 16 can be converted to use on a frame. Ask your HQ dealer.

Agree that this is an option.

It can be converted up, but I was told, once converted it couldn’t be brought back to original. Just be aware and ask about this if there is any chance you would want to go back.

There is a lady on the Handiquilter Facebook page who is selling her Little Foot Frame. You would still need a conversion to the machine, but it may save you some money.
