    Those risers look great. Did you make them? Also, what brand is your frame? Thanks.

    They're those foamy float things w/ a PVC pipe at the right height. I have a HandiQuilter, my daughter does the quilting on it now. I do a little, but she can make that thing go.

    That is a wonderful idea. Like ewecansew said, it makes it easier on the toes. Have fun.

    What a great idea, thanks for sharing. You can pick those floaters up at the $ Store for well a buck and pvc is also inexpensive.

    Thanks everyone. I asked for risers and my SIL took the challenge. You're right, if I stump my toe on these, it won't hurt. They work very well and are not hard to take off.

    Thanks for the info on purchasing them at the dollar store. Someone on the Board had used one on their knee lift and I thought that was a great idea too.

    Very clever. I need to do that with the bed in sewing room so I can stash stuff under it.

    May I ask more about the Handiquilter? What model is the machine and how easy is it to set up and use? I have been thinking of purchasing a longarm but don't know much about them. Thanks. Clever idea which can be used on many table. thanks.

    It makes me laugh. It is amazing what we come up with, that none quilt related items could be used for quilting. No one can say that our minds are not creative in many different ways.

    You did a great job with those risers. I guess most Quilter's could be called McGuyver's of Quilting. (Excuse the spell.)

    My first thought when I saw them was that they looked like those "noodles" my grands use in our pool to float around on.......and sometimes bonk each other on the head with. lol. What a great idea for their use.

    Its a handi quilter frame set up and the machine is a Juki TL-98Q, with cruise control attachment. The bed opening is about 8"-9", not as big a long arm. That's my next big step.

    I use the bed risers that can be purchased at Bed, Bath, and Beyond, or other stores that carry household items.
    This increases the height of the table about 5".
