A machine frame with up to 17" of quilting area. With this frame, you can quilt with your home sewing machine and upgrade to a larger long-arm or stretch sewing machine in the future. *(If you use your home sewing machine, you will need to purchase the stretch frame handles separately.) This frame will work with any sewing machine with a throat size between 5" and 17".
The quilting area you will achieve with the stretch frame depends on the size of your sewing machine. If you have a machine with a 6" throat depth, you will only have that much quilting area. This frame will give you up to 17" of quilting area if you own or plan on purchasing a large-throat sewing machine.

The customer separately purchases the rollers for the frame. The material to buy is called 1-1/4" thinwall metal conduit. It is available at most hardware and home-improvement stores. In most cases the store personnel will cut the rollers to length. The rollers are around $20.00 each.
The rollers are integral to the structure of the frame. The sturdiness and smoothness of the frame stems from using large-diameter rollers with no connectors or joints. It would be prohibitively expensive to ship these rollers to customers. Therefore the customer is getting a very sturdy quilting set-up and saving money at the same time.

The carriage holds your sewing machine. The carriage rolls under the quilt and is supported by two rollers. The carriage is wooden and uses precision grade sealed bearings as wheels. These top quality bearings make the carriage movement extremely smooth.

It has been tested up to 200 lbs. with no problems. This carriage is sturdy enough for any machine.
The Stretch Machine Frame can hold a machine with up to a 17 1/2" throat depth.
