    Default Opinion on Quilting Machine Frames....

    Hello everyone!
    Would love to hear your input on the various quilting machine frames...like the Grace Machine Frames, Hinterberg or has anyone built one? Sometime in the "future" I'm hoping to get a quilting machine frame that will work with my
    Juki TL2010Q. Thank you!!

    I have an Grace Inspira frame that was sold with my Pfaff longarm. Other than taking days to assemble, it is fine. You could use a Juki on it. Grace has excellent on line videos on assembly, their person who assembles the frames in the videos has beautifully manicured nails, and she doesn't break a nail through the whole process. It took a while because I did it alone and one connector was faulty, which they replaced quickly for me.

    I have a Janome 1600p on a grace queen frame. You can read about it, see my results using the setup, and watch my videos using it on my blog at Over the Kitchen Counter: Angie's Place for Cooking and Crafts and using the search box for the topics. Feel free to ask any questions.

    I have the Grace King frame and have had no problems with it. I bought mine through Amazon.

    I have the Grace Start Right frame with a Juki, I got the whole thing from KathyQuilts.com via eBay, the customer service was AMAZING and I was up and running very quickly. I just got the Pattern Perfect set as well since I needed a stylus assembly anyway, because I plan to use pantographs on a few quilts this summer. I have the Juki 2000Qi and haven't had a single hiccup with it. I did buy the stitch regulator when I got the frame, but found I didn't like it when FMQ'ing. With the templates and pantographs, I think it will be a necessity!

    I use my juki on a Bradley frame. I like it, but I wish it had a 4th rod for my batting,

    I have a Grace Pinnacle king frame with a Janome 1600P machine. I bought it second hand off Ebay. The frame is great, easy to adjust, does take up a lot of room though (check pics in my album). The only downside is the throat space on the machine - I only have about 5" of working space, one day hopefully I will upgrade to a larger throat machine. Hope this helps.
