In my Red Chair post my sewing machine and plexiglass attachment were in the background in the photo of my red chair. One on my visitors, Ellen asked about the plexiglass. I was so happy she asked because I just got back from a weekend with the girls and I am braindead and didn't have a clue what I was going to post for today. When I took up quilting I didn't know how to sew let alone how to make a quilt top. I have become a firm believer that if you want to enjoy a hobby invest in some key tools. For me investing in a 1/4 inch foot and this portable plexiglass table saved my quilting
career hobby. When I first started quilting I found it difficult to keep the fabric under the needle as the size of the quilt top grew so did the weight of the fabric hanging off the sewing machine was a pain to handle I can't complain.
The plexiglass top wasn't cheap ($65) but given that I have had it 12 years and use it extensively I can't complain. The info on the plexiglass is worn so I couldn't read any thing more than the words Portable Table. Upon doing a Google search I found one called Sew Steady Portable Table that looks like mine. They range in sizes and prices ($50 - $100). Mine is 18" X 24". I spotted it some where and told the store where I purchased my machine about it and they ordered it for me.
The quilt square below the plexiglass is the first square I completed for a quilt that I started months ago and haven't touched since I fnished that square.
