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.
Let's go quilt,
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.

Hi Evy – You’ll need to attach the laser light bracket to the Qnique longarm first. The bracket is usually positioned on the right hand wheels and connected to holes in the wheel assemblies.
Evy I - March 08, 2023
How do you attach the laser light with attachment to the qr 16x elite machine?

I am finding it difficult to oil my Q’nique 21 with the tablet attached . Is there a video to show what angle to use to make sure the oil is getting to the movable parts correctly

How old is the grace Qnique 15r …
I’m interested in buying one off of someone but I’d like to know how old it is and maybe the price at the time as it is a retired machine.
Thanks for your help … Monica

Dear Leah Day,
thank you for your great tutorials. You were a big help to get along with my Qnique 14+.
I want to buy a new frame and would love to get a Continium II. In one of your tutorials you use a tape measure, which is placed all over the frame. Where can I order it?
Looking forward to your answer.
Regards from Germany

i am in a church quilting group and we make prayer quilts about 50×60 size. We are looking for a quilting frame to speed up our process. Can you recommend a frame and machine? Thanks
Leah Day - August 22, 2019
Hi Cynthia – Great question! I’ll add this to my list of videos to shoot for the Q-Zone soon. It’s on the list!
Leah Day - August 22, 2019
Hi Sharon – You’ll need to contact a dealer in Australia for help. When you place the order, you can make sure the leader cloth is included so that will ship with your frame.
Cynthia Woods - August 22, 2019
Hi, Leah. I just purchased a Q-Hoop. Do you have a video on how to prepare a quilt for a frame? I have always used a domestic and free motion. I have always used safety pins to baste. Everything I have seen just shows putting on a leader cloth and loading the frame. I am kind of uncomfortable with this. How do you do your larger quilts?
Sharon King - August 22, 2019
Hi Leah I’m just about to buy a 15 qr long arm and loving your videos cause I’ve never used a longarm before a bit scary " I was just wondering do you get the leader cloth when you purchase the machine or do you have to buy it seperate I’m from Australia
Keep those videos going thanks Leah

Hi Mary – I know, I could definitely use more help in that area. I depend on word of mouth mostly so please spread the word with any of your quilting friends that are interested in longarm quilting. It’s very hard to teach frame quilting at a show and very expensive because all the students need frames to work on. Check out MQX shows – they are awesome!
Leah Day - July 25, 2019
Hi Patricia – Great questions! Yes, I’m using a stitch regulator on the Qnique 14+ / 15 when it’s set up on a frame. The older videos where it’s set up in a table it didn’t have a stitch regulator. That was just my foot pressing the pedal and quilting the same way I would on a home machine.
On wheels on a frame – that’s really a gimmick. Longarms are serious pieces of machinery and not really designed to wheel around. If you move a longarm, you’ll have to do a lot of work to level it each time. I would advise picking a spot and setting it up and leaving it there!

Hi Leah! You need more marketing! I’ve been looking for help with my frame Longarm quilting and requested frame quilting classes at the 2019 Houston Quilt Show. There weren’t any! I love your videos and have learned a lot since I found them. Thanks and keep it up!!
Patricia Kamp - October 29, 2018
Hi Leah, does the Qnique have a stitch regulator when your just doing free form stitches? Talk about that more on your next vide. I’m also wondering if you can collapse the frame or move it to another room in between quits.
