Default Grace Quilt frame

Hello,
I have been shopping around for a long arm machine and stumbled upon the grace frame. Does anyone have one? I am looking for feedback .
Thanks

I bought a Juki long arm with a metal Grace frame. I love the frame. It's sturdy and easy to load. I did get the extensions for quilting a king size quilt but haven't added them yet.

i just bought the Majestic. it is a very sturdy frame. the problem i have is with their customer service... it was missing screws and ,when contacted, they sent the wrong ones. my dealer tells me that Grace, the founder/mother, died a few months back and things are not running as smoothly now. so my suggestion would be to order your frame through a dealer who will be there if there are any issues.

Are you on the Facebook group for the 2200? It's helpful.

I have the Grace Queen frame for my Brother 1500. Yes, the quilting area could be bigger and you do roll the quilt a bit, but if you don't have the money for a true long-arm (like I don't), then this is a nice alternative.

When I get past the middle of the quilt and the area starts to get a little smaller, then I stitch enough and pin enough to "baste" the rest of the quilt, then take it off the frame and turn the quilt around and load it back on the frame bottom up with all the layers together on the take-up roll. That gives me as much room to quilt on the bottom of it as I do on the top.

I have a Husqvarna-Viking mega quilter on a Grace frame and I love mine. I can only quilt about 5 inches at a time. It fits my needs.

I have the Little Gracie II with a BL Quilters Pro machine. As stated earlier it has a limited space but it does a great job and not anywhere as expensive as the bigger machines. I have had it seven years. The frame is sturdy and the machine stitches well. I can quilt up to a 90 inch wide quilt.

Would love a larger set-up but there is the space involved and the $$$!
