Quilting frame






I'm excited about this one! I purchased this about 20 years ago and I've never used because I've never had the room! Now I have the room! The first picture shows my quilting frame in the "put away" position and the second picture shows how it set so you'll be able to sit comfortably in front of it and quilt away! Least the slanting of the and myself standing up to photograph it, hid my dog!
The side mounts have adjustable holes so it can be placed at different heights. The cloth covered bars loosen and tighten so your able to roll and unroll your work as you go. The zig-zag laces keep your work taunt.

The rug came with the frame and I left it on it because I had the frame taken apart for storage, it just kept things together (like the screws pinned to it). I don't really care for the pattern on the rug and if I do anything with it, it'll have to be altered, the rug suffered water damage in somewhere in the 20 year travel, the frame faired pretty well, although it will need stain touch-up.


I almost forgot, the cloth covered bars that turn? You're also able to start your work by stitching it directly to it.

Now is a good time to use it since you can't do any housework. :)

That was a neat find! Looks like maybe two at a time could work on opposites sides of each other...

Hi guys,
I never thought of that Skeeter, I'm sure it could be used that way, shorten up time, useful for teaching Madam.
Tina, trying to get the clothscapes done, no housework!
