Yeah, it seems they dont have a very comprehensive online store... rather, they just have links to online stores with whom they are affiliated. <shrrug>

I ordered my Ergo floor stand online at the Artisan Design website. All their products are available on the site - artisandesign.com. Actually, when I bought mine several years ago the website was the ONLY place you could find them, they had no store affiliations. So I'd try looking again and click the various product buttons on the left side of the home screen.

And I love my Lokscroll frames too! Very Happy

Oh thanks Marion. No, we were talking about the hobby lobby website because we'd heard talk that they sometimes sell them at 40% off. I know I can get them off the artisan design website, just have to save my pennies up that's all. I'm hoping they do custom work too because their largest Lokscroll (10" x 30") is too small for my big project. Sad Maybe if I ask reeeaaaally nicely...

OOOOPS Embarassed I'll retire to my lurking corner. Sorry I misunderstood the thread of the topic.

Oh no, don't do that! Come back and tell us more about your Ergo! I actually got the family together to buy my mother-in-law an Ergo just recently and she says she's having all manner of problems with it, although if you ask me it sounds like she just hasn't got it set up right. She says that in order to work on the back of her needlework she has to loosen all these screws and undo everything and then put it all back together to work on the front again! Her other main complaint is that once she's in her chair with the Ergo set up she's locked in there and can't get out quickly to answer the phone or anything- again she says she has to unscrew everything to get out. She wants to put it on wheels so that she can just push it away from her when she needs to get up in a hurry, but I think that maybe that would make it unsteady when you were working on it. What do you think?

So Marion, can you you deny/confirm? Or is mummy-dear just being testy?

I'm not Marion, but I use an Ergo. And sometimes I do feel a bit trapped by it, but I've found that if I loosen the wingnut at the base of the stand I can swing it out of the way a bit more easily. Mine also sits on a hardwood floor, so it's relatively easy to push away with my feet.

As far as flipping the frame to work on the back of the fabric, I just loosen the knob that attaches the clamp to the arm, and the frame swivels right over.

Oh I see, so you do need to loosen something to flip the frame. When I first looked at it on the website I thought it looked like the frame was on some kind of swivel that would just turn as you wanted it, but I suppose when you think about it that wouldn't provide any support while you worked would it?

That's a good idea to loosen the base wingnut- I must tell that to my mother-in-law...

Say, all these people out there with Ergos- what do you do for frames for your really big projects? Because for me 30" across is not going to accommodate my L&U. I see that K's Creations has 34" frames but they use the basting method, which I must say I HATE. Lokscroll really does seem like the perfect solution, but it's too small! Crying or Very sad

Some companies sell frames that only work with a regular chair, or maybe a desk chair... because they have supports on both left and right.

They market these for quilters, so they have to be able to hold rather large scrolls. I cant think of where I saw them just now, but if I run across them again I will try to remember to post the links here.
