One of our sons, Daniel, is a qualified furniture/cabinet maker employed with a local business. He has always loved making things and also has a good eye for design. He has his own home now and over the past 12 months has enjoyed renovating many of the rooms and building an enclosed deck.
He has now set up his shed with equipment to be able to make some things in his spare time. He was recently approached by a local retail outlet to make some compressed quilt hangers.
There are many wood stained hangers out there but those with shabby chic quilts might be interested in these Antique white ones he is making. They are a simple design which goes with today's minimilistic type style. Here are a couple of pics, one with the different sizes and one just to show how the quilt is held.
The compression quilt hanger is designed to hang your quilt, wall hanging or tapestry firmly across the width of the hanger. The material is held securely between 2 pieces of timber that are compressed together by tightening the knobs. Your quilt will not come into contact with the screw thread of the knob, ensuring that your quilt is not damaged. The back piece gets screwed to the wall with screws and fittings that are supplied with the hanger. The screws will not be seen.
These hangers are available at Vaughans Shoe Store and Sewing Centre in Loxton or you can send me an email (under my 'about me' heading in the left column) and I can forward you my son's details if you are interested in some.
The quilt hangers come in three sizes, 900mm, 1200mm and 1500mm and there are 3 x 60mm screws, 3 x 50mm wall plugs for brick walls and 3 wall mates for gyprock walls also included.
As a graphic/website designer my website is a great marketing tool for me and so I like to try and re-design it once a year to keep it looking fresh. I actually find it really hard to design for myself, I much prefer to design for other people!!! Anyway the time had come once again, so I spent the first few days of 2010 giving my website a facelift. Here is a screen shot of the front page.
