    Yeh that's the price. I think I could make a very small lazy susan, the part with the bearings...you can buy these any size and jury rig one up.

    They're going to be in Chantilly, Va 9/30-10/2 at the Origiinal Sewing & Quilt and Expo, not an APQS show.

    Did you look on their web site at the work tables? I couldn't believe how much they cost.

    Know this is an old thread, but just thought I'd let you all know that Martelli is making their debut on HSN (Home Shopping Network) Thursday, August 18th!

    You can 'friend' them on their Facebook page (Martelli Quilting Fan Club) or get more information on the Martelli Notions website. Now you don't have to go to the quilt show to see them demonstrate the products!

    I did a lot of talking to other vendors this last time in Paducah. Seem the martelli guys were over stepping their bounds big time. They knocked over a booth next to them when they stared dancing and acting up and thought it was hilarious. They were making inappropriate statements to the tune of they could charm any little old quilter to buy from them and had contests between them to see who could reel in more grannies. They only hired young good looking guys to vend just to charm the ladies. I heard this from many of the show vendors who were appalled at their actions. The vendors will give you the straight story. I also heard a lot of venting about the show's other problems but that's for another post. LOL.

    Urgh. Not a good reflection on them.... I think the owner would have been appalled.

    The link wouldn't work with .asp at the end but I found Trade Shows link on the website with a .htm link.

    What am I missing about the drama? :)
