Quilting Hoops & Quilting Frames
The ultimate quilting hoop for hand quilters! Another excellent Thimblelady design.
The sit upon lap quilting hoop is my original design. I designed it to over come the short comings of the traditional hand held quilting hoop to release quilters hands so you can feel free to move the under finger back and forth more easily without holding the hoop and the weight of the quilt on your underarm. The sit upon design is to over come the short coming caused by the way traditional “lap stand” sit on your lap. My sit-upon hoop let you sit up on its stand piece instead of it sitting upon you! It is held down by the natural weight of your legs siting on any chair so the weight of the quilt is held by the seat under your lap not you and your lap to avoid stress on your legs and belly as well as your back.
