One of the things to come out of the Goldwork class that I took at the Embroiderers' Guild was a recommendation for a floor stand to hold my frames. It is a Lowery embroidery work frame. I was tempted by the powder coated model that came in a wonderful array of colours.
Why practical? Well I live by the sea and that salt air can be deadly for any kind of steel. I am finding that although, not completely debilitating, the rhumatiod arthritus is slowly progressing and I need to sit for longer periods of time. As yet it hasn't effected my hands, although I have managable pain in my wrists, and it might not get any worse. This way I can sit in comfort and It has been over 30 years since I bought my old frame!!
This one will see me out.
