    I had one along time ago and I Loved it! I lost parts in moving~ of all the boxes to get lost. =( I keep saying I'm going to replace it. Hobby Lobby has them and every other month or so they have a 40-50% off coupon.

    I have one and I think they are great. It does a good job of keeping the quilt as taut as you want it, and it is really easy to set up or take apart when you want to get it out of the way for company.

    My hubby made one for me just by looking at the pictures. I did have him make it less deep than the "store bought" because I couldn't reach all the way across and my space is limited. It works very well. If you use the 40% coupon I think they are very affordable.

    It depends on your back. I bought one and used it to hand quilt my first baby quilt many, many years ago. Worked fine back then. Nowadays I would not be able to use it because of my back. Even with the extra lifters, to tilt the frame, it would be more bending than I could do without major problems.

    For me, an adjustable lap hoop works well. Here's a link to my favorite:

    I have one and love it. It has snap on pieces to hold the quilt taut and it's easy to move the quilt to a new position to work on...It's also lightweight and easy to assemble, put away, etc.

    I have a Q-snap floor frame and I use it all the time. I always have a quilt on the frame and when I have a few minutes, I can use the time to quilt. The frame hold the quilt tight and it's lightweight and easy to move around. If company is coming, I can take the unfinished quilt off and put the frame in the box. I would recomend one to anyone who hand quilts.

    My 88yr and. 93yr old aunts used them until they stop quilting. They started quilting when they used the old wood frame that took up an entire room. Both loved theirs. I bought one from Hobby Lobby. I paid $60 for it using the 40% off coupon.

    I have one and use it in our RV. works great in there. I have a wood one at home. The PVC one doesn't take up as much floor space as the wood ones.

    It was the first frame I bought. You will want the tilt plastic things for the back legs. I use it to baste some of my quilts when I feel like putting it together. I colored coded the ends with dots of color so I could remember how it goes together. It's simple but a puzzle to remember.

    I have one. Have tried to use it several times, but can't get used to sitting up straight in a chair. I learned to quilt using a small pvc frame that sits in my lap, about 1 foot square. That way, I can sit in the recliner and still quilt. It can also go where I go, I just fold the basted quilt around it and go!
