I went to a garage sale this week and found a wonderful item. I have been wanting to get one, but the expense was too much. I found a floor model q snap frame for .......get this......$2.00. Yes, it was a great find. only one piece is missing, a part of the bottom support. My dear hubby is going to try to find some pvc and make that one. it has the clamps, and is great shape. I almost didn't stop at the garage sale, they have it about every other weekend in the summer here. But I was sooooooooo glad I did stop. :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

Don't forget to check out craigs list in your area. I got an amazing
deal on a Bailey 13" quilting machine! I had to drive 2 1/2 hours one
way to get it but it was worth it.

It use to be no Smiley Central. I don't know if it still is or not as I
can't figure out how to post them anymore. It got too complicated. :?
