    Someone gave me one as a Christmas gift and I use it as a travel pincushion: the stuffing makes it tough to insert pins. But, it's cute.

    Wow! I have never seen one of those. A very reasonable price too. It looks interesting. Hope someone has the answer for you.

    not me either ,but it is one thing that would just take practice.
    you could use it to quilt as you go. a row of blocks that fit the width of that. good luck and have fun.

    The width seems rather small to me... I think a 24"r would be more useful for quilting table runners & place mats... jmho

    Were you talking about her Avatar picture? She was talking about the item in the link, which is a quilting frame. :?

    That is what I got from the link, too. I got one at a yard sale, but not sure how to make it fit , or if I assembled it right, since it did not have instructions.

    Looks like a smaller version of the John Flynn frame, which I have. it's a lot of set uo for the small amount of workspace you have. You have to roll the 3 layers, and secure them, and then you really only have about 3 inches of workspace (the one rolled edge takes up some space in your working area). I have stopped using it becasue I think it's much easier to just free motion without the frame.

    I have the big Joh Flynn frame and the first time I tried it was a disaster. I should have practiced more before attempting it on something good. But never let it be said, I was the sharpest tack!

    I haven't used this before, but, it's very similar to a 'John Flynn' system looks like it would work pretty well left to right, but somewhat limited back & forth, based on the photo; WAY too small for my needs. You might want to try it... send it back if it doesn't suit your needs.

    I have one. I got on the clearance table. Never used it but I saw a little girl on youtube using it and for machine quilting and having a great time. Only problem, I didn't save the sight and now I can't find it.

    This looks similar to the one John Flynn has designed but his is quite pricey - check out his website, www.flynnquilts.com

    It might be worth getting with one of those 50% off coupons just to play with
