    Does anyone here have the Q SNAP 17 X 17 QUILT FRAME?

    I saw it at http://www.hancocks-paducah.com/Item--i-SF-17 but I have no experience at all (yet) with hand quilting so would love to know if you would recommend it.

    Depending on what you say I might add it to my next Hancock's order.

    Many thanks in advance.

    I have a 11x17 frame that I use in crazy quilting, I wish I had gotten one a bit smaller. Funny, I love CQ by hand but not regular quilting. That is a great price. Here is their website. http://www.qsnap.com/all_products.asp

    I use the 17"square for hand quilting my larger quilts (I'm using it at the moment) I use the rectangle shape for wallhangings just because they're not always wide enough for the larger frame.

    I love using the 17 inch square I have the big table but find I get a sore back so I just have to move the square a lot more often, but it works for me well worth every penny

    I have the Q Snap and it works very well for me. I like that it snaps apart and is easy to store. I have both the 17 x 17 and a smaller size so I can combine the pieces to make a rectangle when needed.

    I use a q snap but only for small things. I think it's only about 12 x 15 or so.

    I have afew, 11x11, 17x17, the floor frame (which I rarely use, gives me a sore back) and I love my hand held ones. I use them for embroidery and handquilting. Well worth the money. You can also make different sizes with them ie 11x11 & 17x17 makes a 11x17.

    I bought one at an auction and have brought it with me for the winter but have not used it yet. I hope I like it.

    Thank you all for your comments.

    You've got me thinking that maybe 17 by 17 is a little on the side of too large. I might think on this one a little longer.

    It *is* a good price at Hancock's right now. All I probably need is a free shipping offer and the decision will be made. I've been told by others on the board that Hancock's have a free shipping offer about four times a year. Here's hoping they do it soon.
