This frame is ideal for both large and smaller pieces of embroidery or canvas work. It enables you to work in a sitting position an eliminates the need to hold the work. The stand is easy to move for comfortable working positioning.
A tip for cross stitch or canvas work: work with your strongest hand underneath the work and pass the needle through the work to your weaker hand positioned above the work. The weaker hand makes the stitch passing the needle back through the work to the sronger hand. Repeat. This means there are no unnecessary movements from hand to hand around the frame that slows you down!
