From John M. Douthat, Founder of AllBrands:

""AllBrands is a Brother Authorized Dealer and ASC Authorized Service Center for warranty repairs. We give unlimited tech support by email, fax, phone, text and cell, plus service in our shop and referral to nearest ASC. This is a premium service that mass merchants can't offer, as they simply don't have the tech service or repair departments for your equipment. They are unable to help you directly, only referring your operational, mechanical or electronic questions back to Brother customer service desk—not their mechanics—instead of taking care of the problems themselves. Brother and customers should expect that any problems you might have will be taken care of by the dealer who sold you the equipment, not simply by referring your requests back to the manufacturer, and this is something we guarantee on our Brother machines."

Brother PQ1500S/L is the same as Babylock Baby Jane BL500A by Brother which is selling in dealer stores for $999+

"I want to thank you very much for your trouble shooting emails. You are certainly more helpful than Brother Customer Service. They just tell you to take it to an Authorized service repair. I have bought 3 sewing machines from your Company , and would not hesitate to recommend Allbrands to anyone looking for a sewing machine. Your shipping and Customer Service is great!

    Optional Carriage with Front and Back Handles for Cutie frame if you don't want to use the underneath handles that come with the Cutie carriage for home sewing machines





    How to Quilt on the Cutie Frame Video


    New from Grace! A portable table top frame for sit down or stand up operation with front that will take up to Qnique 19 longarm machines in addition to your domestic portable sewing machine. If you've ever have wanted to try quilting on a frame but didn't have space or didn't want to invest that much money, then the Cutie Tabletop Fabric Frame from Grace Company is the answer to your woes. This compact frame allows you to do everything a ten or twelve-foot frame can do for a fraction of the space and cost. The Cutie can handle king size quilts and can be stored away when you are through. You don't have to have a dedicated space to set up the Cutie; all you need is a flat surface that is at least 48" long by 38" wide. Laminate countertops, wood surfaces, or plastic tables will all support the frame. You also don't need to worry about the Cutie scratching surfaces or sliding around. The frame's base has a thick rubber padding that "grips" surfaces and prevents movement. Don't let quilting tie you down, and instead, get started on your dream projects with the Cutie Tabletop Fabric Frame today! (Machine not included)

    Adjustable in or out handles work both in front and back of frame. Table shown is not included.

    You will likely need an extension for the foot control cord on your home sewing machine if the foot control does not reach the floor or if moving the machine moves the foot control. The other option is a Grace Remote Speed Control for compatible machines list: Click here to see the list of compatible machines. Currently the Cutie comes with just the single prong extension cable. Eventually, they are going to include 6 cables with each frame. It will include 1200mm (3.97’) cables, the cable already included, a TRS (stereo) Extension Cable, a Custom Barrel Extension Cable, an Angled Barrel jack Extension Cable, a HD9 Foot Pedal Extension cable, and a 3 Prong Extension Cable.

    PLEASE NOTE: the free foot control extension cord included has to be tested with single prong jacks on machines. We cannot guarantee that it will work, even on computer sewing machines. Please contact us with any questions.

    Your table needs to be a minimum of 24" deep by 48" wide. Optional metal table with 12" sit down operation height adjustment, this table is designed for sit down or stand up operation. Will do up to king size depending on thickness of quilt sandwich. Optional Speed Control under Recommended Accessories for compatible home machines that are listed HERE







    For many quilters, space and quilt size can be a large issue. The Cutie Frame can fit on any flat surface, allowing for use almost anywhere, and like the Hoop-Frame it can make any size quilt. Once a project is done for the day, it is easily stored in a closet until it is needed again.

    This frame fits at a price point for people who love quilting, and brings with it all the possibilities of free-motion quilting.

    While your customers will love its easy storage ability, the Cutie Fabric Frame can be broken down for use while travelling or on vacation.

So easily pair this frame with your longarm, midarm, or domestic machine.

    Storage and Accessibility
    Weighing an estimated 30-pounds, you can easily take this frame to classes or guild meetings. When you are ready to store it away, place it under a bed or vertically in a closet. With all the moving you can do with the Cutie Frame, it was designed with durability in mind, and it has additional corner braces and aluminum extrusions to make the structure more sturdy.

icon {Q}Why doesn't the pin feed come up when I turn the hand wheel 360 degrees counterclockwise?

{A}The pin feed position on the drop feed lever shown must be selected before it will engage. If you select another position other than pin feed, the pin feed mechanism will not be seen nor operate. Also make sure the presser foot/lever is down so the pin can come up. Please see comments on page 5 of the operation manual. Refer to page 6 of the User’s Manual. The second section demonstrates how to remove/replace the pin. There is no extra pin in the accessories package, as it it already installed on the machine. Mike P.

Juki TL-98, TL2000, and TL2010 sewing machines are almost identical to the Brother PQ-1500S, except the Brother has exclusive pin feeding mechanism, a longer 7 mm versus 6 mm stitch length, and several extra feet (invisible zipper and fabric separating foot). Juki has an exclusive foot control switch for auto thread trim and raising needle all in one operation (saves time) Both machines do equally well straight seaming, but have varied in past freemotion quilting performance which has been corrected. They were first manufactured as straight stitch sewing machines, but customers bought them also for freemotion quilting. The needle clearances have been improved for freemotion to prevent skipping and shredding. Brother also has a heavier duty walking foot attachment. The Juki TL98 was made in Japan now China, and the Brother PQ1500SL is made in Taiwan. The new Juki 2000Qi and 2010Q are made in Shanghai. Janome 1600P is made in Taiwan.
Click HERE for Solutions.Brother.com FAQ's and Trouble Shooting on PQ1500SL Nouvelle Sewing and Quilting Machine

Why does my needle thread break on freemotion when straight stitch sewing is fine.
For freemotion quilting on a frame, please try Schmetz Size 16 Denim needles, A&E Signature cotton quilting thread, fabric pressure guage at 1/2 way (down or up on the window gauge),and make sure the quilt is down flat against the flatbed of the machine so fabric won't ride up and down on the needle (flagging). Also run the machine faster and move the fabric slower, so the needle won't bend in the fabric. Also feel for any needle burrs on the rotary hook, needle plate or bobbin case that might catch thread. Burrs can be polished off with Crocus cloth from the hardware stores. Please advise what works or doesn't work for you. John Douthat, Owner & Tech.

Why doesn't the pin feed come up when I turn the hand wheel 360 degrees counterclockwise.
The pin feed position on the drop feed lever shown must be selected before it will engage. If you select another position other than pin feed, the pin feed mechanism will not be seen or operate. Please see comments on page 5 of the operation manual. Also the presser foot must be in the down position before the pin feed will come up in normal counterclockwise rotation of the hand wheel.
