|This month, we are introducing frames from K's Creations.
Z-frame lapframesit is the first and only LapFrame to allow complete open sided stitching - You can place one of your stitching arm underneath the project without being restricted. What's more, by swinging the pivoted arms to the left or right, it can accomodate both left and right hand stitchers.it allows the stitchers to adjust the height - The secret is the double jointed pivot arm. Whether you want to place the frame on your lap or on a table, the arm of the frame can be adjusted from 4" to 10" so that your project is at a comfortable stitching height. The Z arm also allows for 360 degree rotation - By simply loosening a knob, you can easily turn the project over to finish off the threads.
For the benefit of those who have never heard of lapframes and do not know what they are, they are gadgets that help you "hold" your q-snaps/scrollframes/embroidery hoops so you have both hands free to stitch or do whatever you wish to do. Some lapframes require you to sit on the base while others allow you to place on your lap or on a table. I have personally used the standard z-frame for 3 years and I absolutely love it! The special thing about this range of frames is that
it uses easy turn Tri-Knobs on all connections - No more using screwdrivers to loosen a bolt (who wants to waste the time looking for a screwdriver in the first place when you can spend the time more wisely on stitching?), no more getting finger cramps trying to loosen/tighten those thin, flat butterfly screws. The Tri-knobs are easier to grasp and turn. You will agree with me once you try this out.it is compact - The Z is completely collapsible with no disassembly required. If you have space-constrained storage area or if you are a neat freak like me, who likes to organise and stack away, this is an ideal lapframe.professional finish - Made from solid oak, the lapframes that we brought in are finshed with golden oak oil rub. The finishing also preserves the wood from our humid weather and gives it a longer life.
Stow-away Portable Floor Stand Elite Series collapsible to a mere 5" in height - by simply loosening four tri-knobs. To disassemble, remove the top and bottom cross members - no tools are required!It will accommodate all frames up to 26" in width - that is sufficient to hold most q-snaps and scrollframes. Conversion kits are available to hold larger frames though we do not stock these currently.
Apart from having most of the special features that the Z frame has (except for the open-sided stitching and that it is placed on the floor instead of on the lap or table), this solid oak or maple stand is also
We will be carrying the Standard Z frame and the stow away floor stand in our stock (available from 15th October 2007). Both come with a universal clamp that will hold either Q-Snaps or stretcher bars. Other accessories that we carry from K's Creations are the Travel Magnifier and Magnetic Board Holder, both of which can be mounted on the lap and floor frames.
