    He really makes it look simple on the video. I haven't given up yet (keep telling myself that)

    I have one that I have never opened. Got it in March at the quilt show, but before I could use it, got a great buy on a Juki on a frame. If I could figure out how to ship it I would be happy to sell it for a little less than I paid.

    I did try it out at the quilt show and once I got the hang of moving the frame and holding it by the front rail correctly (can't emember now if it was over hand or underhand) I thought it worked well. One of the folks that used to be on the board used it extensively and loved it. Don't see her on the board anymore. Oh here is the thread that contains her info on her use of the frame. Her name is kluedesigns and her first post is about 2/3 way down page. http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-44053-1.htm

    I've seen John Flynn using it at a quilt show and he has no problem and quilts beautifully. If he can get good by practicing, surely a WOMAN CAN!!! I think we just get too impatient - we want to do it all beautifully right from the get-go. I'm guilty of this myself and with more than one thing - LOL. Practice practice practice.

I will let you know how it "works" for me....:)
    Dungeonquilts, how did you like the Flynn Frame? I know there is a learning curve to deal with, but am just curious how it all worked for you. Thanks so much for your response.

    I have offered to give mine to anyone who will come and get it. So far no takers.
    Baby quilts are easy to quilt without it.
    To enlarge it would take as much room as a long arm frame and be extremly hard to manage. Imagine holding a large frame and quiding it on pvc pipes for even a twin size.
    Waste of money.

    This frame takes some getting used to just like everything else we do. I purchased one and I like it alot. It took me alot of practice and finally feel like I have it down pat.

    [quote=whinnytoo]I had a Flynn frame a few years ago, and gave up with the pvc pipes. Hubby bought some 'chair casters' and drilled holes in the bottom of the frame ends, so the casters would fit in there and it rolled around very nicely!!! Hope this helps......... the pvc was on the floor more than it was on the table LOL[/quote

    I have been wondering if that would work. Thanks for mentioning it.
