Fellow Stitcher's and Friends...I recently saw in the past couple of weeks on a couple of different blogs that I check in on, and then when I was purusing Floor Stand Models myself during early January...these: Needlework System 4.
In my searching I found the detailed manual here: Stitcher's Paradise
And then Danielle posted about this and found a link to a very detailed review of it from a fellow stitcher, found Here
Now then I'm a Q-snap, fanatic...I will not use a hoop or stretcher bars, scroll frame, ever again....it's Q-snaps for me, baby...has been for years. These floor stand models has a Q-snap option. I've never used anything other than "in hand" stitching for smallish projects and Q-snaps for larger. I've never used a frame/stand/anything else. As I age, I find that I have aching elbows and hands at certain times...usually when I'm stitching a lot daily - which hasn't been an issue for a couple of weeks :( LOL!
So, I would like your opinon on A.) this product if you use it B.) your experience with stands in general C.) do you recommend stands? D.) is it just better to keep on "keeping on" the way I'm doing?
I don't want to spend $100s of dollars and not use it or like it....although my DH said, "well it's your hobby"...WHAT?! what drug has he been taking?! LOL! - makes me want to just go crazy and buy it since he said I could! And if you don't know him they way I do, let me just give you a few "key" words: old school, German, penny pinching, fanatic.... get the idea?! LOL!
Any help or insight would be GREATLY appreciated :)
