    I need someone who knows long arm quilting frames to look at this

    http://pl.strima.com/quilting-frame-.../item/1033970/

    Can someone look at this picture and tell me if it is a certain brand of long arm frame? If so, what is the name?

    They don't give a lot of information about it and so I'm wondering if it is a certain brand where I could find more information about it in English.

    Strima? That's what it says on the side of the frame in the picture.

    If you go up to the top of the site where the search is there are different flags. Click on the brit one it translates the website into english. Hope that helps

    Maybe it is a frame that Janome supports. It looks like it is made out of plastic. I didn't see a price on it. You usually get what you pay for. So, be careful. I'd want something in English.

    Strima is the name of the company...it is a big company in Lodz (Poland) who owns the website. I wasn't sure it was the name of the frame or just the name of the company.

    I live in Poland. This may be almost the ONLY frame I've EVER seen sold in Poland--and they say it is "new to Poland". What would you do if you were interested in a long arm frame and lived here and were an American? Would it have to be in English? For me, no.

    I was wondering if it was something like a "Gracie frame" or something but they aren't telling us that since it means nothing in this market and certainly doesn't translate well into Polish.

    I wonder if Geta could help you? Why not send her a PM. She is a member here, I believe she lives in Poland. I could be wrong though ;-)

    Hmm, I looked at a lot of frames when I was buying mine. I don't recall seeing a frame where all the rollers are in a single line. Seems like all the ones I looked at had the backing and take up rollers on the top and the rollers that held the top and batting under the frame. The handles are usually on the top, OVER all the rollers. (take a look at the Grace site's photos: http://www.graceframe.com/site/machineframes )
    Looking at the Strima frame, I don't understand how or where the batting would go. You can see how they have the top and backing attached, and the roller in the harp of the machine is the take up. Even if you just floated the batting, it would lay over the handles, which are mounted at the base of the trolley. I would want to see this in action, either at a dealership or a video. Maybe you roll the backing and batting on the roller together????

    It's A Strima This is what I got when it was translated.

    The frame of the truck, which is used to run a sewing machine, allows you to create beautiful quilted patterns, in an easy and fun way to patchworkach, quilts, pillows, jackets, etc. The parts can be operated from the front or back through bilateral pedal actuating lever machine. A special index allows precise handling machine on pre-designed pattern. There is no need to make any modifications to the machine, except for the lower conveyor. The frame is equipped with two brackets capable of producing a suitable voltage side quilted materials. Three risers mounted on poles provide appropriate Upięcia quilted material, the bottom fabric (lining), foam and fabric upper (basic). The frame can be used on any, leveled table, quilting material allows for a maximum width of 265cm.
    Frame length is 3m. machine to the frame can JANOME 1600PQC or Janome Memory Craft 6600 PROFESSIONAL . The machine is not included in the price of the frame. Dimensions and weight of cartons: 1 box 127x65x17cm 29/31 kg 1 box 177x23x11cm 6/8 kg
    Cost 941 Euro = $1205 US

    It looks to me to be a frame that sits on top of a table, it also looks like the throat space is made for a short arm machine think juki,pfaff,viking not a true long arm. I own a grace frame and viking which were too small. I now use a nolting fun quilter on a summit frame. Love it. Anna

    Re: Contacting other members in Poland. Did you know that you can search the members' list by location? Use the "Member List" link at the top of this page. When you get to the list, click on the "Search Members" link near the top of the page (right under the A.. B... C... links at the top). Select "Advanced Search", then put the location you want. Country , state etc. Looks like there is one other active member in poland. YOu might want to PM her.

    It seems to be expensive for JUST the frame, $1215(USD). It's designed for the home machine, but depending on how big the throat of your machine, will actually determine how big a quilting area that you'll have, which will also depending on the kind of batting you use.

    yes, it seemed expensive to me...I showed my husband he is going to try to make one! He likes working with metal.

    There are several sites you can find on google that have plans for making frames. They are usually plywood bodies, with pipes for rollers, but could be adapted. Good luck!
