    I'm trying to be frugal like most others, but I've wanted a home quilting frame for awhile. I picked up a Handiquilter frame on Craigslist at a great price. All pieces are there. It looks like it will be manageable and almost idiot proof.

    :oops: I however failed to think about the length of my kitchen table and just came to the realization that I'll only be able to do baby quilts with the thing.

    Well then it's time to get yourself a craft room! Seriously, it may feel like a bonehead move right now but it may be a really smart buy for future endevoures!

    I'd do something like this and blame it on being blonde! It comes in handy.

    Not boneheaded at all! For Christmas I asked for the Grace EZ3 frame. I have a large bedroom and my machine, computer desk, etc is in there. Well, the picture on the web (and on the box) of the frame show a smiling lady in front of a quilt that doesn't look too big. Well DUH.....if I am going to have a queen size quilt in the frame WHY didn't I realize how much room it would take???? Bless my heart, the quilt frame blocks me from getting to the treadmill now. Poor unused treadmill...... :lol:

    I got rid of my dining room table and put my quilting frame in its place. My hubby and I never use it since my son left home so it was the perfect place to put it.

    I agree. You were just planning ahead.
