Cefyn goes pole dancing
It’s true in fact it was Cefyn who told me he was doing this and he even supplied the photos and I have got to say that there’s not just one pole involved, he tells me that there are two and that it all takes place in his shop… In broad daylight!
When Cefyn told me how much room he needs to do this I thought there is no way he could possibly do it the shop, but he proved me wrong. The site of Cefyn whizzing around on his new Long Arm Quilter is a site to be seen (what else did you think I was talking about?) “It’s the quilter’s equivalent of pole dancing” said Cefyn and I can see why.
This quilter has two poles on it (told you so) which allows Cefyn to role fabric up to 120” (10 feet) wide under tension whilst Cefyn moves (dances) his quilting machine which is now suspended over the fabric which allows Cefyn to work on even larger quilts.
Not only will this new quilter allow Cefyn to design and produce an even greater range of work but it will no doubt keep him fit as he dances up and down the wide expanse of fabric on the tension poles.
So when you visit Cefyn in his studio and you hear “Ministry of Sound” music blasting out and strange sounds coming from the studio its only Cefyn creating a new quilt on his new long arm quilter… he is NOT really pole dancing.
