Choosing a Machine Frame
Before choosing a frame, it is best to learn which features are most important for you and the projects you do. No matter your quilting needs, there is a GraceFrame that’s right for you. Here are some key questions to ask yourself when choosing a frame:
Project Size: Will your projects ever include a King Size quilt? All GraceFrames allow for Queen Size quilts and smaller, but only the top of the line will extend to King Size.
Sewing Machine Size: All of our frames will accommodate any short-arm and mid-arm machines with up to a 13” throat. If you have a long-arm, or may upgrade to a long-arm in the future, consider the Majestic, Pinnacle, or GMQ-Pro frames.
Fourth Rail: Traditional rail frames have three rails for your quilt layers. Having a fourth rail lets you get your batting off the floor, keeping it clean and easier to manage.
Adjustability: Do you need a frame with leveling feet or height adjustable legs? Some of our frames also have the ability to fold up to save space, even with the fabric still installed.
Build Material: Would you prefer a frame made from strong aluminium or steel? Or a more traditional frame, beautifully crafted from Baltic Birch wood?
