Continuum Quilting Frame with idler rail

Idler Rail

This convenient accessory eliminates the need to constantly stop and adjust your take–up rail. The more you quilt, the more space is taken up on the take–up rail in the throat of your machine. This normally means you have to watch your space closely, and adjust the take–up rail higher when the quilt fabric starts rubbing between it and your machine. This idler rail solves that problem by letting the fabric collect on the take up–rail at a higher position, so you don't need worry about adjusting your take–up rail anymore!

Note: The idler rail accessory will only work with longarm or midarm quilting machines that have a larger throat space.

Gliding Rail

The Gliding Rail Kit lets you expand your quilting reach. This innovative quilting frame add–on for long–arm quilting works like an idler rail that moves back and forth with the motion of your quilting machine. The gliding rail adds up to 4–6 inches to your reach, and works to keep your block size consistent. When quilting normally, the layers gather on your take–up rail, taking up space and reducing reach. The gliding rail moves this fabric build–up to keep your quilting reach the same throughout the quiting process.
