Have you ever seen a quilt hoop like this?
I won this clever little quilt frame years ago, and at the time, I planned to give it good use. However, after several years of seeing it standing unused in the corner, I realize that my personal hand-quilting style is sitting on the couch, feet up, holding a round hoop in my lap.
So, trying to declutter, I want to advertise it in my Quilt Guild newsletter, but have no idea as to its value. There are no names, or identifying marks on it. It's quite ingenious, with 3 different places for adjustments, plus the hooped item can be rotated without removing it from the hoop - very clever. The hoop is 17 inches across and is not heavy duty, but perfectly adequate for less than a full size quilt. The base and frame are quite sturdy and the wood is smooth. It can be easily de-assembled.
Even a non-hand-quilter might like it as room decor -- it would be cute as anything, with a quilt in the hoop, wouldn't it?
Anyone have ideas of suggestions as to value? I plan to ask for FQs as payment. How many FQs is it worth?
