Master Embroidery Hoop Stands are an excellent accompaniment for your hand embroidery or cross stitch - they can hold hoops up to 45cm (18 inches) wide, and have multiple angle and height adjustments.
These Master Hoop Stands come in two pieces, so are super easy to assemble - and come with full instructions, too! To use it, all you need to do is tuck the base under your leg; adjust to the right angle for you; and let the stand take the strain.
Paraffle Note:Hoop stands were a revelation for me - I didn't realise just how much strain I was putting on my hands from holding hoops in place for hours at a time until I tried one of these! 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 complet...view moree 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. view less
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...view more 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. view less
