Leader Grips

For health reasons, I'm not doing much quilting or much of anything. However, I'm feeling much better and hope to be back at it soon. In the past, one of my biggest procrastinations has been pinning a quilt to my HQ longarm. It takes forever, and I always poke myself with the pins. A few weeks ago, after a visit to Matt Sparrow's studio (aka The Man Quilter) and seeing a product called "Leader Grips" - I put them on my "must have" list. Hubby must have peeked at the list because a set of these was included in the gifts he gave me for my birthday. Check them out! If you have a longarm, you will want these! Sorry, I didn't take a photo but if you search using "images" you will find lots of them. I've set them up, but have not put a quilt on yet. Soon!

Oh, Elsie - what a wonderful gadget! I'm rapidly becoming a gadget girl. Actually my DH thinks he could make these - and then we saw a UTube video that uses magnets, with no leaders to hold the fabric. HUH! Who would have thought! We're going to be doing a lot of looking around now!

I hope you are feeling much better soon!

use caution on the magnets. most electronic equipment magnets can hurt the internal components. Maybe wise to research first.

Thanks for the concern. I agree and would not use magnets, but Leader Grips do not, so they are safe.
