Yet, it was a frustration with the Snapdragon on my floor frame which was giving me fits. Okay, for history, I chose a ball swivel type Snapdragon and purchased the K's Creation Big Foot floor frame as I'd seen other hookers use it at camps and liked it.
Yes, it takes a while to adapt switching frames and stands and eventually found that if I didn't tighten the yoke on the ball tight enough then my frame would flop down. And if I did tighten it enough began to notice it was chewing up the yoke on the frame. Plus, noticed the inner rod was beginning to get deep grooves from the rotation.
So then what was happening is that the inner rod would plummet down lower than the height it was set for. This actually had been going on since September when I was at Cape May but endured with the big rug until I came home and put the Wee Folk on my Townsend Frame. So all was good with Wee Folk on the Townsend.
Then, switch over to Big Dog Hollow and I put it on the Snapdragon and Big Foot. However, as Big Dog Hollow weight started to increase the dropping of the inner rod became more frequent.
Then I went to my Rughooking101 floor stand (it is their sit-upon I'm using right now) and put the Snapdragon on it but since that floor stand isn't adjustable it was too high at the location in my home where I hook.
Finally, getting so frustrated decided to pull out my larger Rughooking101 sit-upon and use that. Then figured it was time to contact both Sue of Snapdragon and Brett of K's Creations and tell them of my dilemma.
Okay folks, I want to tell you these people have integrity and are customer service oriented people. My correspondence to them was more of a need of help rather than complaint and they were more than willing to offer assistance.
Sue wrote saying she has developed a yoke to help. So if you are having a similar problem contact her as the cost of this is only $18 plus shipping. Here is a picture of it with the Snapdragon.
And Brett has contacted me saying that I need a new inner rod replacement.
So the frame frustration problem is going to end happily ever after.
Thanks for visiting and remember to be kind to one another.
