Margaret has a new table!

Here’s her note to me:

“I had a table and used the Sam’s table to extend my space. It is so great and spacious. I am marking a quilt now to begin stitching. I am so excited that this set-up will control a lot of problems I was having, i.e. the weight of the quilt pulling against the needle, jerky movement of the quilt…..well these and other difficulties are now in the past. I just can’t thank you enough.”

I talked her into sending me a pic – isn’t it great!

    It’s wonderful!!! I wish I had a room for my stuff, but that would mean having a child move out and I am not ready for that!

    You know, I have that exact same farm table in my sewing room and so does my mother in law! I never thought of using a table from Sam’s to extend it. That’s a great idea! What is on the top, is that some foam or something? I have often had that trouble with the heaviness of the quilt making it difficult to maneuver the fabric when quilting it. Thanks for the idea!

    Hi Anna,

    That foam on top is called rigid-foam insulation, sold at home improvements stores (Lowe’s, Home Depot) and the covering is thick, clear vinyl, sold on the roll at WalMart and JoAnns. I have 3 videos on how to make the table, cut the foam and position everything (including mistakes I made!) on YouTube – – http://www.youtube.com/user/crazyshortcutquilts and a full tutorial in the archives of my blog on this site – I’ll track down the link and post it. Thanks for your note! Marguerita
