Morgan Lap Stand - best of both worlds

by brae  

I've shown you the wonderful wooden Baby Z Lap Frame I have to hold my needlework projects.  It's portable and well made.  It is relatively heavy, but that works well to hold it in place while in use.

I've also shown you the Morgan No-Slip hoop that holds the fabric tight.

Well, I now have a Morgan Lap Stand.  This set has two no-slip embroidery hoops and extenders to create a lap frame.

There are many sizes available, but I chose the 7" and 9" set.  You can use the stand with either the large or small hoop as the base.

This is especially nice for French knot work or if you want to rotate the work at all.  It can be used either on your lap or on a tabletop.  You can also use either hoop by itself.  These will fit in my wooden lap frame, too.

It collapses for travel and storage, though you'll need a bag to keep all the pieces together.

Why am I hiding the start of this rug?  It's a secret...you'll see it in December.  :O

You always manage to find the most amazing things! It sounds as though something may be in the works for the HBS contest, but all your needlework is exquisite. Roll on, December!

Looks a great tool for mini needlework. I can't wait to see what you are stitching.

Hi Brae - I've seen these before and can't quite picture using one. In hand or on a frame, I've always held my needlework at a slant and it seems like with this, you would have to have your head directly over the hoop looking straight down. But probably that can't be right. How do you hold your head when using it (and don't tell me "under my arm!" ) LOL... Mary Lynne

When using the Baby Z wood frame, I do angle my work. But, I found working with this frame on a tabletop to be quite comfortable even though it is a flat surface. You could probably prop a towel or pillow under one edge to angle it. :yes:
