Where will you put it? 

Choose between the Studio 2 Frame and the Little Foot Frame. Space and the kind of quilts you will be quilting are the biggest determinants of which frame you go for.


The Little Foot Frame has an optional upgrade of the Little Buddy which converts the Little Foot Frame into a no-baste railed system similar to the Studio Frame but you are limited to 45" wide quilts in this mode. You can still quilt up to King Size if you pre-baste in the same way you do for your quilts without a frame.
