Are you ready to learn more about longarm quilting? Me too! I've had my Grace Qnique longarm set up on a frame for almost a year now and I honestly haven't gotten much practice in. It's a very different style of quilting from what I'm used to and sometimes I feel intimidated and worried my stitches won't look perfect.
But that's the whole point of learning how to quilt! We have to push past the ugly stitches and intimidation and keep practicing every day. To challenge myself to use my machine on the frame more, I'm starting a new series called Frame Quilting Friday.
Each Friday you'll find a new quilting video of me quilting on my longarm and learning something new! Check out all the posts I've shared to this series so far:

Yes, I'm a dealer for Grace Company now so I'm selling the machines, frames, and accessories you'll see in the videos. My goal is to help you find the right machine and frame to fit your budget, home, and quilting needs.
No, you don't need a quilting frame or longarm in order to make fantastic quilts! You can do so much with your home machine so please don't feel like you have to switch in order to finish your quilts.
However, if your interest is in quilting more quickly, with less wear and tear on your body, definitely consider the switch. Moving the machine over the quilt on a frame is much easier than moving the quilt under the needle. It's easier to make big, sweeping movements and to stitch large, open designs.
If your goal is to finish a lot of quilts in a short space of time, a longarm mounted on a frame may be the best option for you. Please click here to contact me with any questions you have.

P.S. Are you looking for my Sit Down Quilting Sunday series? I shared weekly videos in 2017 every Sunday to explore quilting on the Grace Qnique longarm as a sit down / table mounted machine. Watch the following videos to explore this different type of quilting on a longarm:
Note: Grace Company no longer offers the Grace Qnique Sit Down version. We now have the Q-Zone Hoop Frame which takes up far less space than a sit down machine.
