Unit is very sturdy. She uses thicker grade of PVC pipe. I am loving this unit!

Yes, Caroline, you can definitely use the system when sewing the binding to your quilt!

Gayle,

It comes with an extension piece of PVC for wider desks. I did not need it with my HandiQuilter table.

I haven't learned all the quilters terms, but now I know what that's called when my quilt is pulling while I am trying to quilt it together. Maybe this gadget will help me keep it stableized and make my stitches more even. Putting an order in and can't wait to try it. Now I need to get a quilt top finished so I can quilt it! Maybe this will help me look forward to the quilting part more!

My stitching is so much better and consistent now that I have the Jennoop quilt suspenders. I know you are going to love it!

Thank you, thank you for this info. I have bookmarked and will definitely check the site. My quilting space is very minimal and have started to get discouraged. Have always made small lap/twin size before and hand quilted. The quilt I am currently making DGD is full/queen size and it is taking forever. DH laughs and says I might have it finished by the time she graduates in six years. LOL

Well, now these sit down longarm machines are starting to make sense. You need good support for the larger quilts. Back in the "old days", we were taught to put in over our shoulders! That NEVER worked well for me.

Looks like you could make the same thing for less money. It's just PVC pipe, some webbing and a couple of clamps. If you have a handy hubby, it wouldn't be hard. Or if you're handy yourself.

Oh, that is so interesting! I am not willing to put hooks in my ceilings. This looks like just the thing I need. Thanks for posting!

I am forwarding this posting to my sister, who does all her quilting on my longarm. Even though she loves it, she has to dread the long trip back and forth traveling, and this little get-up just might be just the the thing for her to set up all the baby quilts, etc. that she is always working on.
