Thanks CC, I'll have a look at it.  What holds the pen in place?

I was looking at the Sweet Sixteen, doesn't look like it would take up too much room.  I'm going to check one of the quilt shops in my area that carries HQ's and see if they carry it so I could sit down and try it out.  The shop is having a 0% finance charge with monthly payments I'd like to check out.  I've literally quit quilting until I can get some of my many UFO's done.

Marie. I think your going to love the HQ's. They are very smooth. Wish I could afford one.

Donna, I don't know if I could afford one either but I'm going to check it out with the 0% and monthly payments.  Let all know later.

Since everyone else is ok with sharing how to make one, here is what my husband used:  3/4" cabinet grade plywood with extra lacquer for smoothness,  and an 1/4" clothes rob.  1/4 - 20 thumbscrew and 1/4 - 20 embedded nut to hold pencil or pen in the hole.  Also, 2" drywall screws to mount wooden clothes rod.  That is how he did it.

Pam, could you possibly post a pic, I'm a visual learner?

I do not see a icon to insert pics.  If there is one, it is not high lighted.  If you want, you can email me at pamjoyquilts@live.com and send me your email address, then I can send you the picture.  OK?

Have a blessed Sunday.

Pam, look for the film strip in the above bar when answering a post.  When you put your arrow on it, it will say "insert Media", click that and then find the picture and choose, then insert.  Hope this helps.  Maybe someone else here would like to see a picture as well.

Marie I am with you I can't read and visualize in my head at all.  I have to actually see it in order to understand it

Hi Pamela,

I would also like to receive pics of it.  I sent you an email today, and it was returned undeliverable.  My email is geas0918@gmail.com.  Thanks for sharing with us!

Marie, the picture that I want to send you I tried the media clip but it wouldn't take a .jpeg pic.  Can someone help me again?  Thank you.

It will take jpg. files...all the pics I post are jpg's  ....click on the film strip icon, click browse......find the file you want to send, highlight the picture, click open, then click insert. (If you have written anything with the post make sure you hit the enter key to advance the cursor to the next line so that when the picture posts it does open in the middle of your sentence)............it does take a few seconds after you hit POST for the reply to appear.

Ladies - thanks for the inspiration.  I have taken a class . . .waiting on my sew steady extension table before I get started.  This is a great idea to help build confidence without using up fabric / batting etc.  Thanks for the idea.  (one more sewing gadget . . :-)  )

 

Thanks again - Monica

Makes it a lot easier to practice that's for sure.
