    I have been trying to use the cage for everything I do on machine. Well some things are not as easy as others. Have had all kinds of tents, etc. but will keep trying. I know it works on embroidery, but I want it all. Thanks for all the comments. Kate

    Hi Jim's Gem, I don't know why you couldn't make it work. I left mine large may need to shorten as I use it more, but good now. I have two desk that may need it one day. Thanks for looking. Kate

    This is a brilliant idea. I just looked at the Jennoop's website and noticed that one has a single overhead bar with just two clamps. I'm curious what decided you on a U-shaped device with three overhead bars and more clamps? Do you feel you get better control that way than if you only used two clamps? At any rate, kudos for a job well done.

    I opted for the u-shape for sturdiness as well as the ability to spread out the held item more and hold more weight. So far working great. Just used to put on the binding on a large quilt...really helped. We didn't glue the connections on the pvc pipe to give us many options for set up. Actually using four clamps right now as quilt is big. Thanks for your interest!

    Wow... that is an amazing idea! I know that Leah Day had posted on her blog about hanging her quilt from the ceiling, but that idea never appealed to me because it's so very permanent. I like the idea of this frame that you can put up when needed and take down if you want to, without damaging anything else!

    I have been using it while I make table toppers, it worked great for hanging items in different stages of making. In my small space it gives me a way to keep things organized (a little bit). I haven't taken it down since I put it up, to handy. Thank you for looking.

    This was my best thing to have when you have many projects going. I used it for quilting and embroidery and towards the end of Christmas sewing smaller items. I will never take it down. Once the smaller items got to the other end of the frame they were done. I don't mean to brag but sure came in handy. Hope you all have a wonderful Holiday season.

    This is the best idea so far. The only things I don't have are the PVC pipe. Thanks! I may have posted earlier but was looking for this one and just happened to have it in my favorites.

    I have the Jennoops frame. After using it for awhile I have discovered that it works OK on small quilts. BUT I am going to build the three sided frame to see if it will better support larger quilts, especially the sides. Most of my quilts end up full sized or larger. Even after I keep saying "NO MORE LARGE QUILTS".

    This is such a great idea, that I thought some new quilters might like to see what crafty quilters can come up with to help with the weight of a quilt while trying to do FMQ on a domestic machine.

    I am thinking about something like this just to help with the weight of the quilt while I sew on binding, which I do all by machine. I would have to have a circular shower curtain holder so my rings kept sliding around. Right now, my quilts all try to slide off to the floor, and this is using a dining table.
