So without further ado here is bitty princess Ellie, so aptly "showing" us how wonderful the stand really is!
Here's she's saying, "It makes stitching so effortless!"
"I could just stitch all night!"
Just taking a moment to admire the view....
(you can see here that I used my pattern clip holder thing...by attaching it to the arm of the q-snap frame...it works WONDERFULLY!...and if you see on the lower left hand side I put my floss ring there for easy access.) everything right at hand...
This is the "test" drive pattern that I started last night at 8 p.m. Tanya's Literary Little "Hope Perches". I wanted something that had little floss changing so that I could get the hang of double handed stitching. It soon became a breeze. I like it best with using my dominant hand (right) under the q-snap, and using my other hand (left) on top. But I can do it the other way too. I soon got in a rhythm and this shows just 2 hours of stitching minus a bathroom break, getting some milk for Ellie and bedtime for the kids...so I'm really pleased at how fast I stitched my first "test" drive.
So many of you have asked me questions, I'll try to remember them all to answer.....this wouldn't fit in a suitcase, but the proprietor that I purchased this from said that the travelling one, is basically the same thing as the "floor" model and it comes all apart for easy packing in a suitcase.
No you cannot use it with the foot rest of a recliner up...I tried, because my stitching chair is a recliner and that is primarily how I stitch with my recliner up...but it didn't work well that way...too far away. I tried slipping it on the side with the recliner up and that worked, but it made it akward to stitch it comfortably. However you can put a footstool on the other side of the frame...and it works :)
It fits nicely under low to the floor chairs.
It turns like a BREEZE to start and finish threads. Nothing to tighten or loosen in order to accomplish this.
The Q-snaps are held firmly in place.
It's really a dream...honestly....I HIGHLY recommend purchase if your thinking about it. I got mine for $292 (this includes tax). I believe it is worth every penny!
Just wanted to share with you all.....have a great Monday and a great week!
