I have never used an embroidery hoop stand but three separate readers have emailed me either raving about them or asking me about them. I researched, read reviews, and now have a list of different options and varying price points. It sounds like they are especially helpful for large projects or super detailed ones, if you have mobility issues, or want to use a magnifying light over top. Have you tried one? I’d love to hear what you liked about it!

Embroidery hoop stand options
Pin this list of embroidery hoop stand options with this link and this photo:
Embroidery lap stand
Morgan Products embroidery lap stand – this looks like a comfortable design and has great reviews.
Adjustable embroidery lap hoop – more angular but also maybe sturdier, this frame is more adjustable.
Standing embroidery frame

Frank Edmunds & Co. standing embroidery hoop.
Embroidery frame stand
Elbesee embroidery stand that clamps to a table – this would be really handy if you have a craft desk or cutting table.
Sonata embroidery hoop that sits on a table- shaped slightly different but looks super sturdy, this has happy customers.
Beechwood embroidery footed frame that sits on a table – this looks like a piece of art! Relatively compact and looks really easy to use.
How to DIY an embroidery lap stand
I found 3 options that look do-able!
The Art of Doing Stuff has a diy rug hooking stand that I think would be easy to hack for embroidery.
Dempsey Woodworking has building plans for how to make a proper diy standing embroidery hoop.
Last but not least, a video for making a hoop stand similar to the very first one I linked.

Sweetness thanks for the review but the standing frames are not meant for standing while embroidering. They are floor standing usually only 27 inches high so it's for sitting at. They are called standing because you don't hand hold them
