We are in LOVE with Quilter's Creative Touch 5.
Edge-to-edge? Yes!!! And so much more...
QuiltMotion Quilter's Creative Touch 5 can be added to any system, even domestics! We've been using it for the last 6 months and love it. We're using Pro, but Beginnings is great too. There's an extra package for Pro called Gold that is a subscription add on. If you purchase Pro with us, we include Gold for the first year.
BEGINNINGS: $3,800 (regularly $4,500)
PRO: $5600 (regularlry $7,000) + GOLD (free for first year) (regularly $200) (a saving of $1,400)
Sewing machine: We use a Q'nique, other domestic machines are often compatible too. Go to https://www.graceframe.com/en/automation/qct/specs#tablets
* Motor Plate: this moves the sewing machine.
* QCT5 Software (It's awesome)
* Tablet Mount
Installing the system is not difficult. You may need someone to help you lift the sewing machine onto the motor plate, but everything else is doable even on your own. The instructions are clear, and there are videos out there to help you too. And we're here to help, along with Grace Company phone support.
