    Couldn't nail down which Micro Handles were for the Vision 26-10, and wasn't sure how they would mount, so, made my own.

    Made out of Aluminum.
    SWMBO loves them, they were made to fit her style of micro quilting, size wise that is...

    You should patent it. You could make them look like any type of ball(most smaller than the real thing) - baseball, basketball,..... Looks ergonomic.

    I thought it was a nice touch with the golf balls.

    Great idea!
    I use the No Frills SID ruler/template from Constitine Quilts...It gets you right down on the quilt.

    Good job, you are a genius! Love the grips. :) Looks very much like the ones I have on my GC+ except for the unique grips.

    Purple would work nicely, do they make purple ones?
    I made the metal pieces out of some aluminum stock I had in the shop.

    Wow they're cool looking, just like my Hartley one's but cuter. They make color golf balls I'd use hot pink ping one's.
