Slow Stitching Sunday

I still haven’t finished this quilt, but I am back to working on it with my new hoop set up.

As you can see, I have help. Anyway, I bought this Hinterberg hoop with stand at an estate sale last summer.

I loved it! But sadly, I broke the stand in January. Mr. Wonderful tried to fix it, but no luck. So I started looking around for another used one since they aren’t made anymore.

I ended up finding this Hinterberg lap frame instead.

You sit down with the flat board under your thigh and the hoop is up off your lap. It actually came with the smaller hoop shown below, but the big hoop from the stand works perfectly.

So far, I think I like this even better. I’m no longer sitting on the edge of my chair.

Happy stitching!

    the hoop I have is a floor stand that I bought at Joann Fabrics YEARS ago, which has been repaired, and never as wonderful as a Hinterburg! Wish they still made them. I also use a lap hoop made by Jean Brown of Portland, OR. that I also got years ago at a quilt show. But I wish I had a larger one!

    Hi Katy! Aww, your little helper is just priceless. That face! This hoop stand looks like a great idea. You can place it where you need it instead of having the limitation of only getting as close as your chair/couch would let it. I think Sue needs one of these to keep the weight of the quilt off of her for the summer. She has a birthday coming up in early June, too. I’m going to go look for one! ~smile~ Roseanne

  5. it’s too bad they are no longer being made. I have a large quilt that I’m considering hand quilting (haven’t done that in years), so I’d love to have something like this.
