11 embroidery hoop stand options

Sharing is caring!

embroidery hoop stand

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!

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
