Under Arm Problems

most sewing machines are too small for machine quilting
At some point, it happens. We find that the arm of our sewing machine is just too small!

We get fed up with trying to wrestle our quilts under the arm of the sewing machine. The process is a pain in the neck. And the results are often less than ideal.

It's time to give up, 
pay someone else to quilt it for you 
or look for something bigger.

Long arm machines can be too big

But the long arm alternative has it's own problems. For many quilters professional long arm quilting machines are

too big
too expensive,
 take up 
too much space 
and to be honest, 
just a bit
too scary! 

They're great for someone who wants to set up a quilting business but really too big and too much of an investment for people who just want to finish their own quilts.

The Juki TL98P Straight Stitch machine is longer and TALLER
 The arm of the JUKI TL98P lockstitch machine is longer and taller that most domestic sewing machines. That gives you the space under the arm that you need for machine quilting on a frame. UPDATE: The NEW TLQVP Mini has all the features of the TL98P plus better LED lighting and an extra tension dial to keep your threads on the thread path.

The New English Quilter frame perfectly tensions each layer of your quilt - like a long arm
 Our frame perfectly tensions all the layers of your quilt so you'll never need to baste, pin or tack again. Ever! It's worth every penny just for that.

I love the frames and was very happy a couple years ago to have Martha and the gang put together a 6' frame for my hq16. But now I would like get a larger frame. Martha ... Give Sandi Whitford a shout or email at or I tried phoning and emailing with no luck. Hope this works! I love your frames!
