Quilted Bags - Featherweight Tables - Square Hoops

Carry-all Lap Frame Bags
New items are always coming at Barnett's Laptop Hoops! This week we started designing carry-all bags for our lap frames and the new Singer Featherweight tables. Trina, a good friend and a proud owner of a few of our lap frames has taken on the challenge of designing these beautiful and functional storage bags. She will be keeping us posted with pictures and plans. Here is a quick sneak peek at a prototype bag that holds our little 12" Collapsible Travel Frame.

Singer Featherweight Extension Tables
Here is a little peek at our "Unfinished" FW table. In the next couple days I will be staining a few of these up in various colors. I can't wait to see what it looks like with a beautiful golden oak stain an a few coats of clear. Recently, I found this website that has beautiful decals that you could apply to the table. Take a look at them on this Link...

Square Hoops

These little hoops have been outselling our round hoops almost 2 to 1 these days. I actually ran out of stock this week and our wholesaler has them on backorder. I didn't want to wait or hold up our customers orders any longer - so I fired up the steamer and tried making them myself. It takes about 2 to 3 days to make one hoop, but it came out perfect. These square hoops have an advantage over traditional round hoops. This is the frame to use when quilting blocks or borders. You can secure three sides of you quilt equally, and have the edge of your border running through the center of your hoop and quilt all the way to the edge. When quilting blocks, you can quilt one block at a time without moving the hoop, since most blocks will completely fit within the square. No wonder why these hoops are selling so fast.
