    I think the issues are product liability, and financial. You have to pay to get a cookie pop up advertising spot. And, of course, something constructed of wood is potentially more likely to cause an injury than the swap blocks, and the qb would not want to be held responsible in any way. I still think it's a great idea. I could see one in my family room right above the heater. Then when dh gets cold, has very thin blood, he could pull a heated quilt down, and warm up. Sounds good to me!

    come on they sell sewing machines on the sales board could sew your finger into those, is the qb liable? no, and rotary blades seen them for sale here too, talk about dangers. Those quilt hangers are beautiful saw two hanging on the wall in Jans house with her beautiful quilts on them, magical display units and easy to pull forward or put closer to the wall. not dangerous at all. I wish I could afford one but probably my landlord would not appreciate me putting things screwed into their walls (lmao when I write this Jan is my landlord). I would have one in a ny second. I had a standing one but they take so much room, this elevates things to eye level which is amazing.

    Ingenious idea Nancia, heated blanket right at your fingertips. Way cheaper than buying those towel warmers for the bathroom. Landlord will have to think about that miss brat.

    jaba I love your quilt display racks that hang on the wall; what a clever idea.
    Be good to yourself - do one thing each day that makes you smile.

    Thanks dabbler I love them. Bill made me one to put downstairs too so I can hang the quilt tops on it that need to be quilted. Long arm is downstairs so will make it really handy. For that matter my whole sewing area is downstairs and I take up practically the whole basement. At least I'm using it that's for sure.
    Been cleaning out and throwing for the last 2 days and will do it again today. So much stuff that I use to do and don't anymore and tupperware type containers and small kitchen appliances, I have 3 of everything. Only need 1 since we sold the cabin and the house in Denver. 3 truckloads so far to the second hand store, lots of just garbage, trading mamahauser x-stitch supplies for a storm at sea quilt (I can't do pp at all) items for miss brat that she had to leave behind in her move here and several kits that I need to sell on this board. I actually have a big closet now that I can find something in and cupboards that I can tell what's in the pantry. Better get to sorting again, check in later.
