    The information is good to put in our "memory banks" when someone tells us that machine quilting is not "real quilting". LOL. Even our ancestors were needing a fast way to quilt.

    It is all about the value of a dollar or the lack thereof. There are places on the Internet where you can calculate the value. I did a quick search and found that $5.00 in 1896 is about $134.00 today.

    this is sorta the same as the modern frames. Who'd have thought. Not much new under the sun.

    And who will make this frame for today's quilters? I'd love to try it.
