Why an Extension Table and a Wide Throat Machine is Essential by Claire Campion
Classes with Claire Campion • Educational, G, 02-Sep-2022
Having a wider throat machine means more space when quilting a quilt. The advantages of the larger throat come into play when quilting a bigger quilt. It enables the quilt to be easily fed through the machine.
Combined with an extension table, the quilting area is more stable and easier to manage. Claire explains how this supports your quilting.
