Thank you for these videos. They've been extremely helpful.

Thank you, Nicola! This really helps understand how it all works. I also loved seeing a glimpse of your furbabies too.

Thank you SO MUCH for taking all this time away from your stitching to show us how the the Millenium frame and this stand work together. I love it! I really do think that after seeing it in action, it makes perfect sense. I also appreciate that you showed how to access the back of the work, as that was my biggest concern. I agree that the simple lift and flip of the Millenium frame is ideal. It's easy to see that the man who created this, and the frame, obviously has considered just about everything a stitcher could think of. Your videos have been an invaluable asset to anyone considering a purchase of the frame and the stand. Thank you!

Wow, Nicola, thank you so much for these videos!! I bought a stand years ago that I used for about a month, but hated having to reclamp to flip it over, and it would start to slip during stitching. This stand looks ideal and can be used with the Millenium frame or q-snaps, or other frames. A great invention! Wonderful demonstration!

Thank you Nicola! I had my husband watch both videos and it helped him to understand what I have been talking about.I ordered the frame but not the stand.My husband could not grasp why it would be better to use this stand. He kept saying a stand is a stand! So maybe I will receive one down the road. Perhaps a Anniversay or Mothers Day gift.(lol)

Thanks for taking the time to make both videos. It's great to see the frame and stand in use by a stitcher.

Jackie said...

I see more videos in your future! You're a natural!

Oh, I forgot to mention...I loved seeing one of the pups in the background!

My husband purchased a stand for me, a couple of Christmases ago. It is the Mark 2 Floor Stand, from Hearthside Craftworks. They are in Canada. It was pricey, but I absolutely love it. I also have a lap stand, but I prefer the Floor Stand.

Marlene said...

I really like the simplicity of it all.
And any type of frame could work on this stand.
Thank you for another great demo.
They have been priceless.

Another great presentation. When I first started stitching I spent a lot of money on frames and stand that didn't work properly for me. Either the tension was too loose or the frame got in the way of my wrists and would be uncomfortable. Your two presentations have shown how it really can work.

You were great in both videos! A perfect natural presenter - had it been me, I'd have been a quivering mess!

I really loved how you presented the stand! You made want to go out and buy another one! (I already have the stand), and then! you made want to buy everyone of the frames! (I already have one, but will need at least two more haven't decided on the sizes though), and NOW I have to have the extra long arms to hold the frames. I hadn't realized such a difference in them till your video. It would help me not feel too cramped with the smaller "normal" ones.

Thank you my friend,
Jennifer H

PS your furbaby is so sweet. Which baby was it?

Received my Necessaire stand this week, and love it! I'm using my current project (which is on Qsnaps) until my Millenium frame arrives. Your testimonial and video were so helpful, Nicola! And I'm proud to report I'm mastering the art of stitching with both hands!! A little challenging for me at first, but I quickly learned to get into a rhythm and now it just seems to feel "right." Think this will improve my stitching speed - which means more WIPs finished and more stash reduction.
