Embroidery stand (sitting) and hoops

Designed by Yvette Stanton
KIT DETAILS | PURCHASE

These beautiful embroidery hoops from Klass and Gessmann, Germany, have a stand that you sit on, leaving hands free to work on your embroidery. They are sometimes known as 'fanny frames'.

The hoop can be turned, or flipped up to access the back of the work, and the height can be adjusted.

Made from gorgeously smooth wood, this is a hoop of lovely quality. It is a deep hoop (approximately 2.5cm/1inch) which gives it excellent stability and strength. Some similar, but inferior, products have plastic parts. These Klass and Gessmann hoops and stands contain no plastic; only quality wood and metal.

The hoops are supplied in a range of sizes:

Whichever size you have, they all work with the one stand, so you can easily interchange different sized hoops.

The stand, or base section, is adjustable from about 36cm to 48cm high. The kidney shaped section goes under your leg, to stabilise the whole stand.

If you are large in the torso, you can just adjust the height so it sits comfortably around your body. Or move it further away from you. You don't need to have it very close, as you can stabilise it under your leg further away from you if you prefer.

You will need to purchase a hoop (or more than one) AND a stand (base section) for this system to work. You cannot purchase JUST the hoop, as they come on a stick/dowel which inserts into the base section which is purchased separately. You can choose the hoop sizes that are most useful to you to go with your stand.

I use one of these hoops and stands, and I LOVE it!
