Machine and Frame

DerleneMay 31, 2011

I'm looking into buying a mid-arm machine and frame and I would like to have some input on different machines and frames, I have been checking on the Voyager 17 and stretch frame but I would like some input before I buy, we have no dealers in this area for me to try so I'm at a loss on what to look for. Right now I have a Juki on a homemade frame and would like to upgrade to something easier to motivate. Thanks for any info you can give me before I make a decision.

Derlene,

I had the Juki on the Hinterberg stretch frame for a few years and upgraded to the Voyager about 5 yrs ago after a friend recommended it to me. I love the set up, I have had no problems with the machine at all. If I have any questions and call Hinterberg they are so helpful and will stay with you till your issue is resolved (my issues were operator error). I think it's a great machine at a very good price. I use both Essential(Connecting Threads) and Coats & Clarks thread with no problems, the C&C thread is a little more linty and I clean out the bobbin area with each bobbin change. I made the right choice for me, good luck with your decision.

There is a Yahoo group called Home Quilting Systems. The members have all kinds of machine/frame combos. You can learn a lot about them from that group!

Oh, I forgot to mention there is a Yahoo group called HinterbergQuilters that you could join and get lots of info there, that's where I started and still go there from time to time.
