    How do you use the foot feed if the whole thing is mobile?

    My hubby could make this (so he says) but I'm lost as to how I'd keep my foot on the feed...I'm missing something in this but duh...what/how???

    I'm having a part timers moment...part of the time I can think of things and part of the time I just don't try

    Thanks for posting this. I've marked it for future consideration...not this year, but maybe in a year or two.

    Very nice!!

    You could probably make a lot of money renting out your husband to build frames!

    Enjoy it.

    It looks great! I just purchased these plans the other day. My dh is going to buy supplies this weekend. I'm looking at 3 different industrial machines on CL's to purchase and use on it.

    One thing you might want to do before you actually quilt anything is to roll your quilt top so that it is coming under the roller instead of over it. You want to top to be flat just above the bed of the machine, not up in the air like it is now. That can cause broken needles and skipped stitches. It's pretty neat, though! He did a good job.
