When I started Cross Stitching again, I had such a struggle holding the hoop and seeing the holes. Many of you in my age group (eye roll here) have found the same. I am planning to review one item that seemed to help me.
The Lzttyee Universal Clip Frame that I bought on Amazon.
Let me tell you how I chose it.
I have watched numerous Flosstube videos where ladies have a Lap Stand that clamps to their hoop. I thought that might make it easier for me if I don't need to hold the hoop. They are beautiful but not in my price range at this time, so I saw this one and showed my husband saying, "This may help me and it's just over $20". He immediately said, "Buy it!" So I did, and here is how I like it and what I learned.
It came quickly in a tidy package, but there are no instructions in the bag for putting it together. So I went back to Amazon and peered at this photo to see how to assemble it:
It is "China Blue" from the magazine:
Ultimate Cross Stitch, East Asia Vol 25 2020 ↩ that should take you there.
