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?
I *do* use lapstands. I recently was gifted a K's Creations lapstand that is perfect for Japanese Garden. It only took me about a day to learn how to stitch two-handed, which makes the stitching go much faster than the stick-n-stab method I've always used. The K's stand folds flat for easy portability, too.
I also have a smaller lapstand that is perfect for smaller projects. The Elan by Artisan Design is not only pretty, but really functional considering how small it is. It will hold scroll rods, needlepoint frames, and qsnaps. It also can be stored flat. I like the wood knobs... they're much easier to adjust than the wing nuts on the K's stand.
