In the wake of my disappointing news a few weeks ago that I can't have Lasik, I decided to splurge on myself and use some of the money I saved up for surgery to buy a cross stitch stand.
Now, I had already done some research into some stands and had already ordered a small one from a company in China. I decided to wait for it to arrive before buying anything large or expensive. I wanted to see how I like using a stand, and the price on this one was great.
Here is a picture of it:
The stand finally arrived, but right away, I could tell something was wrong. The packaging had gotten damaged in transit, and the end of it had a hole on one side. I opened it up and took quick stock of all the parts. It looks like all the wood pieces are present, but the small bag that held the screws had gotten torn open, so I only had 2 screws left.
I have contacted the seller and let them know about the damage. I asked for a list of the screw sizes so I could just go to the hardware store to pick up replacements, since screws don't cost much, but they are sending me a whole screw kit replacement. I hope I don't have to wait another month for it to arrive.
For those who have or use a cross stitch stand, what kind do you have or recommend and why? Do you love yours? I'm wanting some info on stands for when I decide to purchase a bigger, expensive one.
