We have a small house and two inquisitive Corgis (not to mention a bad back and knees) so pinning a quilt on the floor is really not an option. In the past I've gone to my local quilt store to borrow their tables or set up on my pressing station (fabric covered), neither of which are ideal.
In setting up my sewing space, I moved my 'craft' table in and set in on bed risers (ideally it would not be set up full time but I've found numerous uses for it recently). First step was to fine the center of the table.
Overall, I'm not happy with the clamps. Not to mention at nearly $6.00 each, I can't afford a dozen of them. But I was determined to get the basting started and it was not until later that night that I came upon the suggestion to used picnic tablecloth clamps.
