DIME shortE Quilting Frame

The embroidery short arm with a long reach!

Daunting. Frustrating. Awkward. These are just a few words that describe why many people avoid quilting with their embroidery machine.

The challenges abound!

  • It is difficult to maneuver massive yardage of fabric through your embroidery machine for quilting.
  • You struggle to keep all the layers taut as you quilt.
  • You might even avoid more decorative stitching and opt for a simple stitch-in-the-ditch method of quilting. But even that is challenging.
  • You spend a good portion of time pin basting the quilt top, batting and quilt back fabric before you can start quilting.
  • Re-hooping the fabric with a traditional hoop is enough to make you want to quit!

But now... those challenges are a thing of the past! Designs in Machine Embroidery has developed a new product that will change the way you approach quilting!

Introducing... the shortE! The embroidery short arm with a long reach!

Easily create one-of-a-kind quilts using the patent pending shortE quilt frame system. The compact frame design works with a single needle embroidery machine to hold bulky quilts out of the way. The shortE is designed to work in tandem with the Snap Hoop Monster for quick and simple re-hooping right under the needle. With shortE holding the weight of the quilt and Snap Hoop Monster creating the tension, quilting large quilts with a single needle machine is a breeze.
