An adjustable stand with a fabric hoop to facilitate embroidery and quilting.
OverviewQuilting and embroidery (Two of my wife's hobbies) often require putting the fabric on clamping hoops in order to maintain a smooth surface. It must be lifted up to pull the needle underneath, and this can be tiring when working on larger projects or doing extended work. There exist stands specifically for this issue, but they are usually pretty pricey($40 is cheap, most run around $100). The one below was built with roughly $10 worth of parts, and took only a couple of evenings to complete.
