I've been cross stitching for several years, and am looking for a better quality scroll frame and floor stand. What's your favorite?

Check out Artisan Designs website. I use their Ergo floorstand and Lokscroll frames. I've used several other scroll frames and none came close to the Lokscroll for tensioning my fabric. They have a couple different floor stands but I chose Ergo because I like to stitch on the recliner end of my sofa and the Ergo feet accomodate recliners. I also like the clamp which attaches to the side of the frame, allowing easy flipping front to back for running under all those ends!

Needlework stands     Reply with quote

I have a K's Creations Ultimate Stitching Station - see http://www.kscreations.com (but I don't use the floss holder or light holder). I am currently using scroll bars that my husband made for me - I couldn't find any long enough for the piece I wanted to do! Anyway my old ones had warped and so we used 1" maple dowels which should not warp. I see K's now has a "rug frame" which goes up to 68" wide and they will also do custom work.

I have a question regarding those scroll frames: do you really need one that accommodates fabric like 60cm wide ?? (my SQ piece will be this wide). I can't help but think that would be very awkward to use- if you were working in the centre of the fabric you would have to reach right round the back... Could you maybe fold the fabric within the scroll frame to access the middle more easily? I've seen the rug stand on K's creations and it just looks like a monster! Would that really be practical to use do you think?

The problem I've found with folding a portion of the fabric is that the folded part is nice and tight, but the center (or the part I was working on) was still too loose to work on. I use the scroll rods from Artisan Design and haven't had much luck folding under. The slot seems to be designed for one layer of fabric.

I know this thread is getting old now, but I still have more questions!
I've noticed that some of you (Marion, Spiceglider...) use the Artisan Design floorstands/scroll frames. I'm thinking seriously of getting their Gazelle2 floorstand with the largest possible scroll frame (expensive expensive!), which will be the 10" x 30" which apparently allows 28" fabric width. My question is will this floor stand hold such a big frame without wobbling all over the shop?

Many thanks in advance for advice from those who know these floor stands...

I use the Ergo stand with a scroll frame that's 10 x 24 with no wobble. The feet are designed to give lots of flexibility to create a stable base. I think you will be okay even with 6 more inches sticking out. I had a crazy thought just now: has anyone ever turned the chart 90 degress so the narrower dimension would be on the side instead of at the top? Perhaps then the fabric would fit a smaller width scroll bar. I'd probably go nuts working on the chart that way, but I might try it someday when I'm finished with Pinkie just to see if I'm totally bonkers! Laughing
