    I just left a small quilt retreat at the Radison Hotel in Plymouth, MA., and meet with the Thimbles & Friends Quilt Guild. After I showed them my quilt frames, they showed me a small 2' X 3' wooden platform with tiny adjustable legs. The sewing machine slides into the platform creating a nice working area.

    The ladies said I should make them for the Feather Weights.

    Does anyone have one of these platforms or know if someone already makes these?

    Thanks,
    Harry Barnett

    Assuming it folds to make it portable I'd be interested in one.

    I might be interested also, as long as it folds and isn't too expensive!

    I may have misunderstood the original post and just thought of another question. You say it's a platform. Is this something that sits on a table or is it a table that sits on the floor?

    I have a similar item on order from twice a treasure on eBay. My iPhone doesn't like to cooperate with listing pics and links, but I'll try. http://shop.mobileweb.ebay.com/searc...ice-a-treasure

    It sits on a table. It has a cut out that the Feather Weight slides into allowing the top of the platform to be level with the Feather Weights working area. I am going to try to work on my first one this week.

    How large of a working area would be ideal?

    UPDATE: Got mine from twice a treasure, it's a work of art worthy of my FW. Perfect, solid, lush hardwood. Luxurious. I'm being careful with it, but it's solid wood , so I suppose it could be refinished one day if needed. A bit heavy to call "portable", but fine for a car to classroom trip.
