New stitchery stands...

We now carry the
Needlework System4 
Stitchery stands
They are nicely weighted and easy to position.
Heavy base with toothed joints that don't slip when you're stitching.
Because it is fastened at both sides, your frame doesn't tip at one end like it might in a frame held at only one side.
This is the scroll frame set. 
 It comes with a set of 12" scroll rods. 
 The American Dream scroll sets also fit in it wonderfully. 
 It will hold a scroll set from 12" - 20"
For those of you who love to stitch in a chair with the frame in your lap,
 that can be done comfortably.
 It has an easy flip 360 degree turn for getting to the back of your work.
No loosening or tightening of a knob required.

 This stand has a clamp for stretcher bars, q-snaps or hoops.
Same easy 360 degree turning - to make stitching easier.

Heavy duty metal construction for a lifetime of use.
Scroll set $262.00
Clamp set $272.00

but noooo...
I think I will let them stay like this.
They held up well in the wash and it makes me smile!
