Do you use a stand when you stitch? If so, tell us about it and share pictures if you’ve got them. If not, would you like to try using a stand? Do you have any tips or tricks around using a stand versus not using a stand?
Do you use a stitching stand? I sure do. In fact, I've used one for the last 25 years. I have a beautiful floor stand which frankly I hardly ever use. It's to be used with a recliner but quite frankly, it just seems too unstable for me.
I think it's called an Ergo but I'm not sure of that.
My favorite stand are my lap stands from K's Creation's. I have all three of the sizes of the original frames but my favorite one to use is their Z Frame. I'm still using the original one that they came out with probably about 15 years ago. I love it!! It can be positioned any way you like and it can hold scroll frames, q-snaps, or stretcher bars. It's just a wonderful frame. The only problem we have found at the store is that their customer service has really deteriorated since Kay died. And that's so sad cause they have a wonderful product.
Another advantage I've found with using a stand is that you can teach yourself to stitch two-handed. It took me a little while to learn the technique but it was so worth it in the end. Takes the strain off of one hand and allows you to stitch so much faster.
