This week, we’re going to take a wee break from looking at needlepoint stands. Instead, we’re exploring the rice stitch. It’s one of those versatile stitches that you can use in a variety of places on your needlepoint canvases. It makes a terrific border. Some people even use it as a background stitch! The rice stitch is a member of the crossed stitch family. There are oodles of variations of this stitch.
The week before last, I posted an article about needlework stands from Needlework System 4, a company in Florida. And this week, we’re gonna continue my series with a peek at the Lowery Workstand. Lowery Workstands are manufactured in the United Kingdom, but they’re available worldwide.
A couple of months ago, I splurged and bought their stainless steel model as a Christmas gift to myself. Admittedly, my experience with them is limited, but so far, I’m reeaaaallllly impressed!
What’s that quote about “the best-laid plans”? If it’s that they often go awry, I’m walking proof that it’s true! My original plan – to share my Lowery Work Stand – went off the rails when the tech gremlins took control of my video earlier today. So, I’ll ask Rebekah to help me film a new video this weekend. And since we’re in the middle of enrollment for The Stitcher’s Club™, I thought now would be a good time to share a little about it – and the Stitch Guide Formula™ – with you here…
