INCLUDED! Inspira iQuilt 10 Foot Metal Quilting Frame (extends to 12 feet with the optional 2 foot extension kit)
The ALL NEW enhanced iQuilt Frame is the next step forward in machine quilting. This frame combines all of the great concepts from the previous Imperial model with exciting new features that greatly enhance the Quilter's experience, including stability in the frame as well as performance in the sewing machine.
One of the performance enhancements is the steel rails that now not only provide additional strength, but allow the frame to extend from 10 feet, with an optional 2 foot extension, out to 12 feet. With that, a steel coupler has been included. The steel coupler adds the additional rigidity, not only adding performance to the rails, but simplifying the assembly.
We have new track supports on the frame, taking and adding the new SureTrack design both to the front tracking and the rear tracking helps to stabilize the motion of the carriage. We have also been able to incorporate that same SureTrack design to both sides of the upper carriage as well. This provides exact precision in the movement and the stitch quality of the machine and system.
Improved Look and Value
There have also been some additional simplifications with assembling the table and the frame as a whole. Additionally, with some new clean pieces such as the white table, the look and value of the product have greatly improved.
The iQuilt Frame is perfect for any sewing machine with up to an 18 inch throat space.
Additionally, the iQuilt Frame is compatible with the following Systems.
Tin Lizzie Shirley Stitcher
SureTrack Dual Wheel Carriage
SureTrack Frame Extrusions
1 1/2 inch Steel Rails
Steel Rail Couplers
New White Plastic Tables
Height Adjustable Tables
Height Adjustable Legs
Can be set up in four different configurations to fit your sewing space and needs.
SureTrack Dual Wheel Carriage Design
The dual SureTrack design improves stitch accuracy and eliminates flex while maintaining a smooth Carriage Motion
New Professional 1 1/2 inch Steel Rails
The new 1 1/2 inch diameter steel rail increases the overall rail strength. A two foot extension can be added to the frame extending it out to 12 feet. The rails include the Fabri-Fast system for quick and easy fabric installation.
Steel Rail Couplers
The all new steel couplers bring enhanced rigidity and simplified assembly to the frame.
New Dual SureTrack Frame Extrusions
The new extrusions allow for perfect carriage alignment, adding stability and improving stitch quality.
Optional 2 foot Extension Kit
Extend the frame from 10 feet to 12 feet with the optional 2 foot extension kit.
I have used a mid arm quilting machine for several years and decided to upgrade to another machine. After some problems that were quickly made right I was able to start using my new machine and frame. I am totally taken away with this machine and how easy it floats on my frame. It is so easy to handled. I can make a straight line of quilting without using a ruler. It makes a beautiful stitch and the auto bobbin winder is great. I am very happy with my purchase.
I can finally afford a long arm

Marie-Anne Munger Saint Johnsbury VT US I am glad that a man as dedicated to making his customers happy owns Sewing Machines Plus. Mr. Martin means it when he says that his customers happiness with their purchases is the first order of business for him. After many problems with missing parts and broken pieces, he finally stepped in and made the world right for me. That said, the machine is awesome! It was easy to run from the start. It is a Pfaff Grand Quilter 18x8 and it runs beautifully. There is, of course, a learning curve. Practice and more practice will remedy that. In the mean time, the machine is wonderful and runs well. Thank you so much Mr. Martin for caring so much about your customers satisfaction and happiness!!

My wife has always wanted a long arm but I never thought we could afford one. After extensive shopping and researching our options I ran across this machine. But, being skeptical, I started digging and asking lots of questions. Everything I learned about the machine (Husqvarna-Viking Mega Quilter) was positive and, when I found out about the 0% interest financing I made an executive decision and ordered it. I surprised my wife with it for her 50th birthday and she loves it. Just be aware that it's a lot of work to assemble and is very big so you'll need lots of room. Also, if your wife is new to long arm quilting she may find it a steep learning curve before she's doing big projects but my wife says it's worth it. Finally, it helps to have the support of a great store like Sewing Machines Plus. They're great!
LOVE IT LOVE IT LOVE IT!

I've been drooling over a quilting machine for a long time, but was always scared away by the high prices. A friend told me about the 18 inch long arm that she received from Sewingmachinesplus, so I did some research on line, and then went to try out hers. I really liked it and decided to buy my own, which my hubby provided on my next birthday! Iím having the time of my life with this machine. I love how smooth it glides on the frame and the accuracy and precision of the stitches. I love being able to free-motion a whole quilt in just a day. It's simple to use and it sings to me when I get in the quilting groove. I would recommend it to anyone. The service at Sewingmachinesplus.com was great. They answered all my questions and took care of a couple minor problems that came up when I ordered an additional part. They even gave me bonus stuff and free shipping for my trouble - nice people!
I Love this Machine!

First, let me say that I have experience using longarm machines. I think that makes a difference when considering the useful of a review. I have owned a mid-arm and tested many of the upper end long arm machines at quilt shows. From my experience this machine has superior control and response. There was no wobbling back and forth. I could easily retrace my stitch line when doing feathers. Smooth curves were easily achieved as well as free-hand straight lines. On similar mid-arm competitor models I did not feel that this was the case--I had to fight for control to retrace sewing lines and to achieve beautiful feathers that I was able to easily achieve on this machine.
