    I've got one similar to that. I made it myself with a lil help from hubby and I love it! :)
    If I take mine apart and put it together differently I can get 3 different sizes out of it.
    It's very easy to move around so even if you don't have a chair on wheels you can flip the frame around just as easily to adjust your sewing angle.

    I can do frombaby quilts to throw sizes (not done anything bigger yet) all using the same few pieces of pvc and yes it saves TONS of room.

    and I'll measure for you while I'm at it ;)

    I bought mine 25 years ago for my birthday, and have quilted and tied dozens of quilts on it. It works best with low loft batting, and is great for hand quilting, because you can reach all areas from one of the four sides. It's very portable, fits thru a doorway, and is easy to store.

    Are you talking about the PVC frames? I love those - I have the floor version and a couple different sizes of the lap-sized ones. They are so much more gentle on the fabric than the wood hoops, and easier to adjust.

    The floor frame is good for group projects, and you can get an extension kit that allows up to six people to quilt at one time.

    I love mine, I have had it for about 13 or 14 years. I have a really small one too, I have had for probably 20+ years that is for cross stitching. I know you will love it. Get the leg extenders, It will put the frame at a slight tilt and really makes handquilting easy.
