    This is for all members who has acquired the old Inspira frame and they didn't get any instruction how to put it together.

    I don't have the frame anymore but i kept the instructions just in case.

    I hope it helps you all.

    I don't have that frame, but just wanted to say that was a nice thing for you to upload. I'm sure someone will really appreciate it being here.

    Thank you so very much. I will pick it up today and get started. Another question, can I use my Babylock machine with this or does it only work with a Husqvarna Grand Quilter machine? The person who gave me the frame is keeping the machine. Any advice you can give me is so appreciated.

    Also, have you found any sites on the internet that has good information about this frame? I have never used a quilting frame before so it will be a learning process.

    Thanks,

    Bevy

    I use my Sapphire. Bought an extra foot pedal, took the guts out and attached that to the Inspira handle bars. When I want to FMQ I unplug the original foot pedal, put machine on platform and plug in extra, striped down foot pedal.

    I know that this frame does other machines but not sure which ones. But there are a lot of yahoo groups that you can sign up for and a lot of the members there have this frame and they provide a lot of information and support. They are great. Join couple of groups and they will help you with every step.

    Good luck

    Thank you so much! Have the frame but it is only partially put together. Now it can be completed.
    I am going to put my megaquilter on it but I have heard people use the pfaff with it also.
    (I really have no idea though and I will need to join one of these groups as I don't have a clue where to start once it is put together)

    Isn't this board great. There is always someone who is able to provide information and inspiration. Raksmum, I have the newer version of this frame with a Pfaff Grand Quilter. Please feel free to contact me if there is any questions I can help with.

    Have fun with your frame :D

    I have the Pfaff Grandquilter and the Inspira frame..bought back about 2003-04. I use the machine all the time, but the frame is still in the box. Recently I opened the box hoping to put it together...haven't made it yet!! It has a video tape (not a disc).I don't even have a VCR to watch it on. Maybe soon with the help of my friend, we can get it going. Thanks for the tut!!

    I just bought a used Inspira frame with a Pfaff Grand Quilter. I have these directions, but there are no directions for attaching the fabric leaders to the frame. Should a sew the velcro to the leaders? Should I finish the fabric leaders to avoid raveling? Help!

    I have an imperial frame with the Inspira carraige so looks like things are interchangable. I have a Baby Lock Jane machine on it.

    Thanks so much for uploading these instructions. I am selling my Mega Quilter and Inspira frame and realized I did not have the assembly instructions...it came to me set-up.

    Thank you so much for posting the instructions! I didn't have the correct instructions and its been hit and miss on getting it together. I am so glad you did this as it makes this so much easier to get it together and get started.

    Thanks again,

    Vickie

    Hi Bevy,

    I just got my frame and I too will be using a baby lock machine with it. I wanted to ask how you sewing machine is working with the frame and were you able to use the stitch regulator that came with the machine. My frame came with a cord that I think must go with the husqvarna mega quilter.

    Thanks

    Vickie

    I have a question about inspira frames. I am interested in one that is a few hours away , I wanted to find out several things but the person on the other end doesn't understand what I am asking, Perhaps you can help me
    1) does the carriage have round wheels with a groove in them that run along the track?
    2) how long is the carriage?
    3) I have a PC quilter that has a carriage I am wondering if it will run along the track so that is why I am asking about the size and wheels
    4) Can you adjust the area of the tracks to make them closer together or is the only adjustable part the legs?

    Thank you !

    The carraige is 28 1/4 in long and the wheels are solid but fit into a track that moves the machine back and forth. The base has wheels that are angled in and there are two sets at each corner. Hard to discribe. It is a two piece setup with the carraige sitting on top of the base that has the angled wheels that move along the frame.

    Does anyone know where I can buy the end caps for the poles? I'm missing one end cap. Thanks for any information for parts for the Inspira Frame.
