    We saw them first at the fair. They were selling them $20 a piece or 2 for $30! They were wonderful. I bought some last year at a CVS $5.99 each or 2 for $10.00. (the first store only had one} When I went to find more at another store, a few weeks later, they were in the 90% off bin. I bought 5 or 6 and gave them as gifts. Will be checking out the dollar tree.

    I bought three last year at the Lancaster show. I think they were about $6. Worth every penny but it would have been nice to pay a dollar. I'm using it right now on my computer chair, have one in the car, one on the futon in our second bedroom.

    Saw them at the Dollar store in Menomonee Falls WI and thought they were a gimmick, now I wish I had picked one up. I could use one in the recliner where I set most of my idle time.

    I'm going to have to try this!

    As to the comment about the folks at the quilt show: it costs a pretty penny to have a booth at the quilt show. And it is a convenient and exciting place to buy the latest and the greatest.

    Also, from what I understand there are different 'qualities'of materials these things are made of. And the 'little guys' (quilt stores) don't have the huge volume of quantities to buy down the price like chain stores do.

    Not that I won't be one of the folks going to the Dollar Tree ... I will. Just asking you cut the quilt show folks a little slack. Nothing is more disheartening as a shop owner to find what they thought was an 'exclusive' has been undercut and sold at discount chain stores. Debbie Mumm is a good example of quilt store 'cross-overs' to retail.

    I'm not a quilt store owner but I was around the buiness enough when I was a national educator for Pfaff Sewing Machine Co to know some of the challenges they face as the 'little guys'.

    Blessings,
    Peggy in Florida

    I checked two Dollar Tree Stores and neither had them. I was bummed because I wanted to buy a bunch for presents.

    Not Me and I Don't Know put a hole in mine and now it isn't as bouncy and firm. I need to go check out the dollar tree and take it out of their allowances!

    Thanks for the picture. I think I'm going to go to Dollar Tree tomorrow. I need one for the sewing chair and my chair at work.

    Oh my gosh, I can't believe some of the prices that are shown on here. I bought 3 of them last winter at a swap meet in Ariz. for $2 ea. I have one on my chair behind me right now. It works so well for my back. I first saw them from friends who use them in their jeep when they go 4 wheeling. I'm so happy to see you show yours.

    Dang! I have company right now and so I may not get a chance to get to the dollar stores. Every time you guys come across a great find it's gone by the time I get there. I'll keep trying.

    The Dollar tree in Burlington Iowa gets a shipment in almost every week on Tuesday. They advise you to call ahead and they will save them for you. They sell out every week. I love mine.

    Can you possibly post a picture so we know what they look like. Sounds as though they'd be great while sewing. Thanks

    Son of a gun! I bought one at the Houston show last year for $10.00 and I don't even use it.
    Oh Hon, you should use it! They are God sends! :)
