I bought Stitcher's Delight Needlework Frame to use with it because I had some larger projects that wouldn't fit on the 12" rods. You will need an extender bar to use with the 14", 16", 18" rods 22" Adpater Bar For E-Z Stitch Lap Stand-Solid Oak. It's been great to have so many extra frames, so I can have multiple projects set up at once.
The rods come pre-mounted with the velco backing, so you only need to apply velcro to your fabric. It is quite easy to mount. The fabric velcro is one-time use, so you will need more eventually, but it comes with a roll which should last at least 3-4 projects.

Pros: The stand is made of hardwood and I really like that it can accommodate thicker frames to hold --. I purchased the stand based on the photos that another purchaser had provided which showed her large embroidery hoop. There is a cylindrical sturdy metal bar that the wooden portion that holds the front of the frame attaches to and the bar allows the frame to tip to various angles. The flat portion holding the main frame for sliding under your legs is also very sturdy. The wood is sanded and polished so that there is no chance of stickers.
I had already placed my cross stitch pattern into a frame (not roll up) and it is 20" long so it is much too long to fit comfortably on my lap even though it can tilt. I may have to take my pattern out of the current frame and use the dowels that this order came with to roll the fabric through - I just do not want to mess up all the stitches that I have completed by mashing them.
I have only completed a few cross stitch items so I am new to this.
I'm no longer trying to balance a 20 inch scroll frame on the arm rests as I embroider or do counted cross stitch. The clamp works with any square/rectangle piece of wood (stretcher bar frames). You do have to use the adapter bar with scroll frames (I did order the 22 inch adapter bar as this only comes with a 12 inch). I love the ability to quickly flip the frame up so I can see the underside of my work. I have my clamp on light and magnifying glass clamped to the adapter bar which allows me to move them to the best position for what I'm doing. It's great being able to have the light shining up from under the material when you are working on black material (a lot easier to see the holes in the material). I like being able to adjust the height of the material to my comfort level and even when flipped up, I don't find it too much of a reach to be able to tie off the ends. I haven't found anything that I don't like.
As she told me, she was getting older, and her hand would start to hurt after a couple of hours holding her hoop.
We had looked at a couple of stands, but some seemed to be just too big or complicated.
This one is neat. It sits under your legs to hold it steady. She can use it whether she is in a chair or lying on the bed. Good size for normal stitched projects.
Unfortunately, the project she is working on now is an afghan, and is too big to fit into this stand. She works on individual squares at a time, but it is all part of an 8 foot afghan for our youngest niece.
But, as soon as she is done with that project, she will be setting it up for her new wall hanging.

This is beautifully made with no rough edges anywhere. It holds the fabric taut without sagging. The clamp holding the frame doesn't sag either.Read more
