    Appearances can be deceiving! I had one and sold it because it was more of a pain than doing FMQ without it! I am sure others will have a different opinion. Just wish I had only spent $5.00! Good luck and let us know how you like it!

    It works great for Hand quilting. I used it for years before I purchased my long arm.
    $5 is a great price. I'm sure it works for free hand, I tried one at a show once.
    Enjoy

    Most of the reviews I have read about this is to practice, practice, practice. Plus it takes a lot of space if you want to do larger quilts because you have to move the frame not the sewing machine. Will be anxious to hear how you like it. I have seen several quilts that John Flynn has done and the quilting is quite remarkable.

    I recently tried one of these. I have not been too sucessfull yet but have seen it used at shows and I do think I could master it with practice. My machine does not have any speed control which makes a difference for me. I used one on slow speed at a show and had much better luck.
