Sonata embroidery hoop stands are the perfect accompaniment for your hand embroidery or cross stitch - they're adjustable, lightweight, and can hold hoops up to 30cm (12 inches) wide.
The seat frame comes with comprehensive assembly instructions - so all you need to do is tuck it under your leg; adjust to the right angle for you; and let the stand take the strain. They're great for saving aching hands and fingers from holding your embroidery hoop in position!
Paraffle Note: These hoop stands were a revelation for me - until I started using one, I didn't realise just how much strain I was putting on my hands (particularly my pinky finger!) from holding hoops in place for hours at a time. Plus, from setting the stand at a good height, I finally stopped hunching over - saving my shoulders and neck a whole world of trouble!
I am so glad I have purchased this hoop stand as it has made it so much easier to sew using it. It is so comfortable to use and it can be moved into any position I need, to complete my sewing with ease. I am no longer hunched over my sewing and no more juggling with the working hoop, while trying to complete the embroidery. I would totally recommend it.
Very useful stand, especially for French knots or any stitch that needs two hands. The base is designed, by its curve, to go under the right knee. This is really the only angle you can't change. The height and angle of the hoop, plus the distance from you, can all be adjusted. Several minutes after setting it up should be devoted to changing different angles to find out what works best. It was easy to set up with the included allen key. It works best on hard chairs, but does ok on soft squishy sofas. Small note: my stand is not precisely the same as in the pictures, there are no black turning knobs on mine and the base is the one shown in the parts picture.
This is great because Iâ€™ve got arthritis in my wrists and it is so much more comfortable to use.
I love this hoop, makes sewing so much easier. You do have to tighten the wing nuts etc. to get the bolt to pull through and hold in place, no turning. Then slacken for general use.
Absolutely love this, Iâ€™ve been looking for one for a while but havenâ€™t ever found the right one until this product came along. Itâ€™s amazing and makes it so much easier for me to embroider. Good price, great delivery but the only criticism I have is not with the product itself but with how to assemble it, the instructions were not very clear at all but I managed to do it eventually. Thatâ€™s more for the manufacturer and not Paraffle, however if there was a small video to show how to put it together then that would be really helpful for buyers. But overall I am very happy so thank you.
