Cross Stitch Frames and Stands

by pkmcr

Are you a keen cross stitcher who struggles with keeping their project under control and know exactly where you are up to? The cross stitch frame could be just the thing for you!

Every so often I like to try out a new craft and recently I decided to have a go at cross stitch. I soon discovered that manhandling the cross stitch I was working on was a little limiting and that a cross stitch frame was needed! After taking a look at quite a few cross stitch frames over the past few weeks and trying a number, I can definitely can you that one like the F.A.Edmunds Stitcher's Wonder Stand is the sort you need!

What I really like is that they are very solidly constructed from smoothly finished wood and have fully adjustable knobs. It's ideal because it goes from a height of sixteen inches to just under three feet tall which means that you can use it in a wide range of positions.

Obviously as a cross stitcher you need the fabric to stay nice and tight in the scroll frame so that you can deal with even the most intricate needlework.

An Adjustable Cross Stitch Frame

A Cross Stitch Frame Makes It A More Relaxing Hobby

Ergonomically, this sort of product is a godsend! You can quickly and easily adjust it for any height chair you may be using. You can also adjust it to a standing position if you get tired of sitting and need to stand up.

The stand also makes it easy to tilt the project to any angle and/or rotate it 360 degrees. Using a cross stitching stand, I have found that I can work for much longer on my projects without paying for it later with physical strain on my body.

This standing cross stitch frame also pulls up really close to the chair or couch, unlike other frames I have taken a look at. In fact, you can even pull this frame up to the edge of the bed and cross stitch while sitting up in bed.

I've thought about how useful this would be for a bedridden patient in a nursing home. Buying one or two of these cross stitch frames to be shared at your local nursing home might be a great way to spread a little sunshine.

This cross stitch frame would make the perfect gift for anyone who loves to do any form of needlework. If you know a person who gets bouts of arthritis in their hands this could also be an ideal gift. It would be a wonderful way for them to enjoy their crafting projects again because you don't have to hold the frame and as I mentioned the frame holds the material so tight, it is much easier to work the needle.

A Cross Stitch Frame Makes It A More Relaxing Hobby

I have found that cross stitching to be such a relaxing hobby, and a great way to get your mind off the stresses of the day. However, if you have to struggle with the material in the frame you are using, this can turn a relaxing hobby in a stressful one. The F.A.Edmunds Stitcher's Wonder Stand eliminates this issue completely and actually adds to the enjoyment of the hobby by being so adjustable and ergonomically designed.
