    Weightless Quilter

    I believe giving what I can will never cause me to be in need.
    Being cheap is not a badge of honor.
    My heroes are working people, paying their own way, taking care of their children and being decent human beings.

    Yes, it certainly would work very well for sit down machine quilting, but it also appears to require a bit of repositioning the frame/arms as one moves around the quilt. But, I think if I had a sitdown/dsm quilting set up, I would look into this very seriously. ( I have L/A)

    Checked it out on line. Sells for $299. Looks like a good alternative for some one like me who doesn't have room for a standard frame. Thanks, Onebyone, for the heads up on something I wasn't even aware existed.

    I think it would be so much fun to watch it sway back and forth.

    I puddle my quilt and it works fine. I did see one quilter that said you can use a rolling clothes hanger to throw the bulk of your quilt over if your space around your machine is limited.

    Very interesting. I am not to sure in the long run how it would work. Would not work in tighter spaces with your machine near a wall. You would have to have a great deal of open space on all sides. Interesting idea. I noticed the video was made in 2016. I wonder why it hasn't caught on?

    There a quite a few DIY systems around if you want to play with plastic pipes etc. Not sure how robust they are but much cheaper I guess.
