    I was at our local Marden's today and found some back rests that had been selling at our LQS for $6, they were only $2.99. They fit nicely over your chair and hold you back in the correct position to prevent backaches.

    While looking at them I was talking to another lady and a gentlemen overheard me say I'm going to use it for quilting. He said he was a quilter which got my interest. When I asked how long he said "well I know a quilter" but he said "I'm very familar with quilting terms". He asked me to "throw a term out there and I'll tell you what it means". I said "half-square-triangle" and he said I "had him with that". Very funny guy.

    I was at the dollar tree today and they had back rests for the chair for a $1.00. I had seen these at WM for over $5.00. I wonder if they are the same as you got.

    These advertise "as seen on TV" and are a mesh type material with a strap that fits around the back of the chair.

    Hey wait, aren't you supposed to be quilting ;)

    Yes it is the same ones. Sorry, I know but my machine was acting up so I took a break before I tossed it across the room. I'm going back to quilting. Bye.

    Are they black mesh? I bought 1 and liked it and bought 2 more today. They do help my back.

    I had the opportunity to visit a Marsden in Maine and I was amazed at the beautiful fabric selection. Picked up a few items and sorry I didn't buy more. Oh well we will be up there again next June so I'll just load up then,

    Not the poster, but I also don't have TV. Cabel is way too expebsive living on SS. No reception without antenna. Can't put a dish up where I live (senior co op). I get my news from newspaper, internet and radio. We have a good library in town that has a great source of videos. Doing just fine.

    yes, these are the ones. but i got mine at home and garden show in the convention center, where they put out the new products each year. but they came in a pair for something like $15.00. you might try the office supply stores.
