    My PVC embroidery/quilt supporter

    Was going to have my son-in-law make me something out of wood, then saw a picture of what looked to be a flimsy pvc supporter for quilting/embroidery...so my daughter and I went PVC wild and made this sturdy frame that fits around my 6 foot by 30 inch sewing table! The whole deal cost $49, and that includes $11 for a pvc cutting tool! WOOT WOOT! Breaks down in minutes and seems to be holding my quilts just great! Thanks for looking!

    I have been following the thread on the Jennoop support system. I figured it would be cheaper to make than buy. Would you mind sharing how you made yours...such as which pvc you used and what kind of clamps and straps you used. Inquiring mind wants to know....lol

    Looks great!! What did you use to make the straps and clamps? Would love to see close up photos of those!

    Ingredients to pvc stand

    1. 5 lengths of 10 foot 1 inch pvc40 pe piping (a heavier grade---sturdy) which were like $3.64 each
    Cut: 4 @ 5 feet, 4 @ 31 inches, 2 @ 44 inches (this is based on MY 30 inch wide table) 2. 4 of 90 degree couplers at $.66 each...
    3. 4 of 90 degree couplers with outlet---basically a 3 outlet coupler at $2 each
    4. Bought an assorted size 22 pack of clamps from Lowes...some too hard for me to clamp, so picked size that worked....$9
    And one great PVC cutter tool for $11! woo hoo!

    Used shower curtain rings attached to long strips of canvas I sewed.

    Any questions I'd be happy to answer!
