Grace Sturdy-Lite Quilting Frame.
This easy to assemble quilting system has the lowest cost of any frame on the market. A Free Standing System, built of high quality birch ply-hardwood construction. This heavy duty construction and innovative design take the Sturdy-Lite beyond table top products. It requires no table for use making it a complete quilting system.
The Grace Sturdy-Lite Quilting Frame.
New Smooth, Seamless Tracking; No Metal on Metal.
The key to the entire system is how the sewing machine tracks. With the Sturdy-Lite your machine rests on two specially designed, sturdy plates that track perfectly with ball-bearing rollers for an incredibly smooth ride. There is no wobbling. These plates allow up to 16 inches of forward/reverse travel in the work area. The only limit to your reach is your own machine. The carriage accommodates any machine up to an 18 inch throat space. It provides enhanced stability and locks your machine in place with four base clamps.
Easy Grip Handles.
Free motion quilt from the needle side of the machine ...
... Or you can quilt from the back of the machine to follow patterns.
A Smooth Cushioned Ride.
The Sturdy-Lite provides the following features for the smoothest, quietest track system you can find:
The tracks for the bottom plate are engineered specifically for the Sturdy-Lite out of ABS plastic. During the research stage several different combinations of material were tested, including metal tracking. The feel of metal-on-metal was too cold and noisy; like fingernails on a chalkboard. After trying the cushioned, smooth ride of steel wheels on plastic, the decision was easy. The tracks are inset on the tabletops in pre-cut grooves, so they automatically align and are guaranteed to stay straight. You never have to worry about them being misaligned! With the track being one single length, there is no worry of seams or bumps.
Lock in Your Quilt Tension.
The 30-tooth ratchet wheels and double-lock stops provide the necessary front-to-back fabric tension.
The Fabri-Fast System.
This is a no-baste, three-rail system. The custom designed rails come with the new Fabri-Fast system for fast and easy fabric installation. Simply push your fabric and tubing into the Fabri-Fast slot with the included Fabri-fast tool. Fabric goes in and stays in straight and clean.
The Sturdy-Lite's design includes table tops ideal for pantographs (pointer included). Aluminum track supports add to the frames robust construction and professional appearance.
Folding legs make the frame easier to store up against the wall when not in use.
Easier Side Tension System.
There are four side-tension clamps (two for each side). Simply apply the clamp then pull and secure the bungee cord in the side slot. It's fast and easy!
