Long-Arm Machine VS Quilting Frame for a Domestic Machine
JarOLimes Send a Message
I am looking into two different options, getting a long arm or getting a quilting frame set up for my domestic machine. I have a sewing machine with pretty good throat space, so I'm not too concerned with not having enough quilting space. Any other pro's or con's that you can think of?

You will be surprised at how much space is used up in the throat area from the rolled up quilt on the frame. I started with a domestic machine on a frame and was unhappy with the amount of space. So i bought a Hsndi Quilter Fusion, the 24 inch throat and love it! I can do so much more in my quilting. I originally thought the first machine wiuld have plently of space, but was oh so wrong.

I just got an Artista sit downlong arm quilter that I am learning to use as it takes up much less space and standing too long is painful with my back and legs. There are many videos that show how to use sit down quilters and that is what I am doing now. I always used my other sewing machines before this and the difference in quilting is like night and day.
