Each December I treat myself to some nice special gift. I am usually quite generous to myself since it includes my December birthday as well as Christmas. One year it was an iPad, another year a Townsend Orbiter floor frame (for big rugs), another year a Garmin GPS, well you get the idea.
This year I was contemplating purchasing the Acadian Rug Hooking Frame. Must admit I'd be embarrassed to tell you how many frames I have but they each have their purpose.
Last May while at Barb's camp someone was using her frame and Barb raved about how she loved it. I had my own frame and didn't even think about trying it out then but did take a couple pictures of the Acadian Frame. It is obvious in the photo there is a swivel ball so the frame tilts and rotates. Not sure if it adjusts to height or not but in the picture below wonder if the inside dowel rotates, which would make for smooth rotating movement.
Snapdragon frame top but have an issue with the two floor stands when traveling to camps. My Snapdragon is nice working at home on my sofa which sits low while using the K's Creations Big Foot floor stand which you see below. But with use over time the movement has cut grooves in the metal rod. So when I take it to camp and adjust the height of the floor stand the frame drops down and settles into those same grooves cut into the rod at the position is it used at home. A very annoying and combative fight continues during the entire duration of the camp.
I've emailed Cindy, who does not have a web site, and asked her the questions about adjustment. Here is also some information posted on Cindy Gay's blog which even has a couple personal reviews on how it works.
Another option I guess would be to buy another K's Creations floor stand but at $179 that could be applied to another whole new frame.
Enjoy your last day of November as December rolls in after midnight tonight.
