    MountainMamma:
    Can't help with the quilting frame directions but I'm sure by the time the sun goes down you'll have received a dozen websites to visit that tells you want you want to know.

    Welcome to the site. Glad to have you on board.

    I found this one, not quilt what you want, but works really well.

    if you scroll down to the bottom, this one describes the kind of frame you want. You can leave it on the back of folding chairs, instead of saw horses.

    For saw horses, go to a building supply store and they have the joints and you put the 2by4 pieces in. instant saw horses

    Search for free quilt frame plans in whichever search engine you prefer. I've found several that are from pvc pipes:)

    Hi,

    The second site you posted was very interesting. The first e-mail was about what I would call a curtain stretcher. It is a frame with hundreds of nails sticking up around the edges. My mother used to have one. You stretch lace curtains on it to dry. That way they are stiff and don't need ironing. I remember helping her do it when I was a kid. I am sure some of you remember the metal frames that you put a man's dress pants into when you hung them to dry. My Dad didn't wear dress clothes to work but one of our neighbors always hung her husband's pants out like that.

    I remember those "pant creaser" things. My dad was a mechanic so wore Penney's work pants but they were creased so they'd stand in the corner...as were the 501 jeans my brother's wore (at $2.99 per pair). In those days ironing and creasing the pants/jeans was a MUST. You weren't "cool" if your clothes looked like an unmade bed....ulta white t-shirts and white socks, short CREASED jeans, penny loafers and the guys were ready to stroll the halls at school....good memories. Thank you!
