Master Embroidery Hoop Stands are an excellent accompaniment for your hand embroidery or cross stitch - they can hold hoops up to 45cm (18 inches) wide, and have multiple angle and height adjustments.
These Master Hoop Stands come in two pieces, so are super easy to assemble - and come with full instructions, too! To use it, all you need to do is tuck the base under your leg; adjust to the right angle for you; and let the stand take the strain.
Paraffle Note: Hoop stands were a revelation for me - I didn't realise just how much strain I was putting on my hands from holding hoops in place for hours at a time until I tried one of these! Plus, from setting the stand at a good height, I finally stopped hunching over - saving my shoulders and neck a whole world of trouble!
