I love crossstitch, and have not done it in a while. It's time consuming and when I was young with kiddos to chase it was just difficult to work on. I still had a small metal hoop from my childhood, but I was never a fan. I had never bothered to see if there was anything different, however, I also quilt and was looking at long arms. This kinda reminded me of that concept, but on a smaller scale. I never even knew these existed but saw picture of someone working on a crossstitch on a frame and thought, wow what a great idea. I added a basting grid on my fabric for accuracy and got her loaded and ready to go easily. I also picked up the stand. At my age magnification helps too, but I am really looking forward to my next project. The plastic clips are tight at first and a little challenging to get on and off, but I expected that. They will loosen up after a few uses, the clips on my long arm were the same. I am really pleased with the set up and looking forward to using it. I might not have picked up new hand work without having such a great frame to work with.
