Well, now I have a stand that I can use and take with me when I travel, and it is beautiful. It was designed by Judy Odell, and she has posted a lot of information in her blog. I just received mine today, put it together in about 5-10 minutes (only five separate wooden pieces) and I'm ready to go!
Here is a picture of the whole stand:
A side view:
The part that holds the "arms" can be set at two different heights (I've got it at the higher setting right now), and can also be set at a large variety of angles to get just the right setting for your own taste:
The two arms at the top can be placed in a several positions, from very close together to far apart:
They can also be angled so that they are further apart at the top and closer together where you're working.
My Witches Hollow WIP is on Q-Snaps that are about 15" x 24", and it rests comfortably on the stand:
When I want to turn it over, I just pick it up and flip it, then place it back on the arms, where the little posts at the bottom keep it in place.
As I said, I've never used a stand before, so I can't compare this one to any of the others out there. I just think that this is a beautiful and easy-to-use stand at a reasonable price. And if you go to Judy's blog, you'll find she's offering this at a discounted price until December 24.
Hope everyone has a great stitchy weekend, and I'll be back on Monday with hopefully my last Witches Hollow WIP picture until the big finish!
