Inspira Frame


I finally got my new frame up and running. It was good to have a few days to learn the new machine so it wasn't wasted time. I don't have the stitch regulator on yet. I think they sent me the wrong one. The dealer is going to call Pfaff and if it's the wrong one he'll get the right one. This one fits on the NG frame but not on this one as far as I can see.


I have done some scribbles and tried following a couple of the pantograms. Not as easy as it looks but I don't think it will take much practise to get reasonably good results. The machine is working like a dream so far. The main thing is to remember to put down the presser foot. I guess I will finish practising on this piece of fabric and then load a real quilt. It will be a scrappy one so the quilting won't show too much. All in all, this is a lot more fun than wrestling a big quilt around on the regular machine.

That looks exciting Joyce. It looks wide enough for you to be able to eventually quilt a king size on it. I imagine you have lots of projects waiting in the back of your mind. Good luck and enjoy the process and learning...it's always great to increase skills and learn isn't it. I've made another little bag...hehe.

hope they're able to get the stitch regulator in quickly for you...

Oh what fun! And yep -- looks like a lot more fun than wrestling with a large quilt. Ooooh, can't wait to see what you come up with!

Yes, do remember to put the foot down. At the store the sample that everyone plays on has a bunch of thread nests where they forgot. I know from experience down there that it isn't fun to unsnag it. Have fun with it.

I am so glad you have your big machine!! I want one too, as it is pretty tough to wrestle big quilts through my little sewing machine. Have fun. Thanks for stopping by my blog.

So similar to mine....I haven't got to this stage yet, mine still requires unburdened sewing room time and that isn't possible at present! well done! Tracey

How exciting and fun. Free-motion quilting on a frame always equates with ice skating to me. Hope it's that much fun. Please let us watch you as you learn.

That looks like fun Joyce. It won't take long for you to get it up and running I expect.
