    I found a Handiquilter frame on Craigslist yesterday for Fifty dollars! It is only currently set up to do 60" but that's fine for now. It works very smoothly! I'm going to set up my Bernina on it soon and give it a try! I've been toying with the idea of getting a quilting frame lately but I've never had an opportunity to work on one, so it is difficult committing to the prices of a new one just to find out if I like it. This should give me a good idea of what quilting is like on a frame.

    Anyway, thanks for letting me share my excitment!

    Wow, what a lucky find. I usually buy something then I find it at a cheap price.

    We can't wait to see the results.

    You are so lucky...only $50.00 for a quilting frame. I hope you have fun which makes your small investment all the sweeter.

    No, not kidding. I don't have a machine with a big throat though, so it's going to be limited use, but at least I'll get to try it out!

    I have bought a lot of fabric online for the last 4 years from crazy4quilts.com. She is awesome and will answer any and all questions. I've bought several kits from her as well. I also have bought from Connecting Threads and Quilt in a Day. She's my favorite author,(Eleanor Burns) at least she makes her instructions so that even I can follow them. I'm trying to get up the nerve to start either an irish chain or the jewel box. Also bought a lot of fabric on ebay. Have always been happy with all fabric I received. That's my 2 cents worth :)
