PVC Embroidery/Quilt support frame
7 Attachment(s)
Was going to have my son-in-law make me something out of wood, then saw a picture of what looked to be a pvc supporter for quilting/embroidery...so my daughter and I went PVC wild and made this sturdy frame that fits around my 6 foot by 30 inch sewing table! The whole deal cost $49, and that includes $11 for a pvc cutting tool! Woot Woot! Breaks down in minutes and seems to be holding my quilts just great! Thanks for looking!
1. 5 lengths of 10 foot pvc40 pe piping (a heavier grade---sturdy)
Cut: 4 @ 5 feet, 4 @ 31 inches, 2 @ 44 inches (this is based on MY 30 inch wide table) 2. 4 of 90 degree couplers
3. 4 of 90 degree couplers with outlet---basically a 3 outlet coupler
4. Bought an assorted size 22 pack of clamps from Lowes...some too hard for me to clamp, so picked size that worked
And one great PVC cutter tool for $11! woo hoo!

Used shower curtain rings attached to long strips of canvas I sewed.

Any questions I'd be happy to answer!

WoW! That is so cool!!.... I've been seeing a lot of questions and answers about ways to hold up your quilt so you can FMQ a little easier. This looks like a fantastic solution. I'm going to have to bookmark this one. Thanks so much.

PVC is almost as versitile as duct tape! Waiting for the day when it comes in prints/colors! You and dd did a great construction job!!!!!!

I think that the picture you are referring to the Jennoops Quilt Suspenders. I have ordered one. But I like your idea of making one that will support the quilt back and side, especially for queen and king sized quilts which can be very bulky and heavy. Did you use 1" schedule 40 pipe? I have tons of it and the fittings purchased for another project.

Hummm... I think I will retro-fit the PVC quilting frame ( used 1x) that I keep tripping over. Kate Henry, I like the way you think!
