Quilting frames for sale!

There is a long story to go with this one.  I found a steal of a deal on a couple spinning wheels.  The gentleman selling them was liquidating crafting supplies his deceased wife had and loved.  He wanted the quilting frames to go to someone who would love them as much as his beloved wife did. I bought his frames thinking a friend may be interested but she is short on space and cannot use them.  I thought I would share here first.  (Uno?). The fellow wanted them to go to someone who would love and use them.  I have a portable round frame, something like a gigantic embroidery hoop.  I paid him $50 for it.  I also have two gigantic square frames.  One larger with legs and one smaller without.  Both include clamps.  $20 for both.

SUE! SUE! SUE!

How big across is that round one and do you have pics of the square ones? Does the round one come off the base? Is the height adjustable? (I will look closer at the pics. I got all excited)

I am interested, in case that wasn't clear.

If the square ones are as I think, they are boards that you C-clamp at corners? I have a gigantic frame like that also but need a 14 x 14 clear area to set it up in. Empty space that I do not have. But that stand hoop, I am guessing you could set it up in the living room.

Christmas may come early to the Uno household.  To Uno.....from Uno.  With thanks to Sue.

Re: Quilting frames for sale!

UNO, UNO, UNO!

The round one is just over two feet in diameter.  The head swivels so you can twist and turn it and work on the portion you want.

Yes, I know the frames are huge.  Do you know anyone with room?

Re: Quilting frames for sale!

I do not know anyone off the top of my head who has room for those large style quilt frames. I prefer them for working. I feel you get the best tension with those large frames. But you need lots of room ....

Re: Quilting frames for sale!

Very happy because I got two nice wheels as well!

Is there a quilting guild that I could donate the big frames to?

Uno, Uno, Uno, do you want that round frame?

Re: Quilting frames for sale!

(long pause) Yes. But. (more long pause) Wondering how much more hand quilting I will do in my life. (more pausing) Wondering how it will break down for shipping by bus? But if I do more hand quilting, wouldn't it be nice to have that frame? Torn! Torn! AAAGGHHH!

Re: Quilting frames for sale!

Oh UNO, you KNOW you want it, go for and get it over.  Nice early Christmas present for yourself.  Start making shipping

arrangements.  Talk to the other Quilters out there about the others.   Someone may be interested and you can ship together.

Glad you're buying the round one.  whizzle

You are such a bad influence! Remind me to never take you into a fabric store with me.

Re: Quilting frames for sale!

You know what, Sue?  I will take both if you still have them.  I will find the room one day!!!  These are too good to pass up.  Plus, I can deliver to Uno when I am down there in March.  =) 

What do you say?
