This versatile, adjustable oak lap frame works for a variety of projects-- whether your passion is cross-stitch, needlepoint, crewel, embroidery, or quilting. It also provides an attractive furniture quality frame while your project is in progress.

The twin pillar legs construction provides a stable platform for all your projects. The whole scroll frame can rotate a full 360° for quick, easy access to the back of your project.

The adjustable side extender bars allows placement of your frame to best suit your seating position and the position of your project for either lap or table use.
   


Assembly is simple and can be completed within minutes without any tools required. This sturdy frame is fashioned from solid American Red Oak and hand finished with Golden Oak oil stain.

The EZ Needlework Lap Stand Includes:

  • 2 side support pillar legs
  • 2 adjustable side bars 12"
  • 2 heavy duty scroll rods with Tape for Rods 20"
  • 2 spacers
  • 1 roll of Tape for Fabric (3 yards)
  • 10 knobs

This lap stand uses the no basting system. The E-Z Stitch® No Basting System comes in two parts. The first part is attached to the scroll rods and the second part you can attach to your fabric. I like to fray the top and bottom of my fabric-- that way I have a straight line. This way once I have placed the tape on the fabric and attach it to the bars, I know my tension will be even from top to bottom.
One of the benefits of having a lap stand is that now you can stitch with both hands. I have found that not only is stitching with both hands much faster, but my stitches look much neater and straight.

Another benefit is that my hands scarcely touch the fabric now, so no more dirty, stained fabric when you are done with a piece.

Also check out all of the quilted accessories that we have created to go along with the EZ Needlework System.

TIP... With the EZ Stitch Lap stand there is a screw , that screw goes through the Side Bar the Spacer then the Leg. Then a knob is attached and tightened to secure it in to place. That knob needs to be loosened before you flip it over to get to the back of your work. Then once you flip it back use a screwdriver to tighten it back down and secure the frame into place.

Hi Donnett- where did you find your metal knobs? How do they work with the lap stand?

I am interested in buying the stand. I have an older American Dream EZ Lapstand with the center post - I straddle it while sitting on my chair. the wooden knobs loose the glued in screw receivers over time so this my interest in the metal knobs!


Thank you - Nancy

Here is a link to the metal knobs we carry. I like the flat ones they just seem easier to turn. https://www.embroidery.com/family.ec?efid=4767&pag...

I have had my American Dreams table top stand for a long time. I have one criticism and that's the ability to turn the scroll bars to the back to end/start threads. The tension doesn't hold for the amount of flipping you do for an entire product. I have to use a screw driver to tighten the mechanism to hold the frame in the position that I like to stitch in. Noticed on your video you have larger wooden block to replace the small cubes. Will these help with my problem?

I have had the problem you are talking about. Unfortunately when you spin the frame over, it will loosen the tension. I will be introducing a new product that we will be posted online within the next couple of days. It helps with securing the tension of the legs to the frames. I will be doing a demo video on this new product as well. The EZ Stitch Heavy Duty Spacers are nice if you use Iron Knobs. As they are longer then the Wooden Knobs. So you can spin it over to the backside.

Is this identical to the frame previously made by American Dream, or have you made any changes to it? Also, I noticed you use the metal knobs on your stand. Why do you prefer them? Do you prefer them in all 10 areas? Thanks in advance for your help

Donnett H.

Yes this is the EZ Stitch Tomorrow's Treasures Lap Stand formerly from American Dream Products. We have not made any changes to this Lap Stand.

With the wooden knobs they have a threaded inset glued in them. After using them for years of stitching and securing your scroll frames. I have actually broke that glue bond between the inset and the wooden knob. So I found some metal knobs that would be really hard or impossible to strip out. I usually only use the metal knobs on the scroll frame and where the legs attach to the side bars.

I was thinking of purchasing one of these, I am using it for embroidery & punch needle, some of the projects are 4" x 6" will this work for small projects? Thanks !

Yes the Scroll Frames can work for any size project. The Scroll Rods come as small as 6 inches and all the way up to 48inches. But you could even put smaller projects on this Lap stand. Just center the fabric on the Rods and then depending on how long the fabric is just shorten the distance between the rods on the side bars. And you can get really tight tension which is what you need when doing punch needle.

How easy is it to turn this to the back to end threads? Does the scroll frame turn readily on the side supports?

Please Login to comment on this post.

Donnett H.

Oh it is so easy to flip to the other size to end your thread. With the wooden knobs it can spin completely around. The metal knobs are a bit longer so it doesn’t spin all the way with them but enough that you can get to the back to tie off.

This is a great idea for a demo so check back in the up coming weeks and I will do a demo on this.

I love these scroll frames and can't imagine using another brand or sew on scroll frame. I was wondering if you will be carrying the floor stand that American Dream Products made. As soon as I saw that floor frame I knew I had to have it too. The ADP items are so well made. Unfortunately, as soon as I had the money put aside for it it was no longer available for purchase. What's a stitcher to do?

We are in the process of re-designing the Floor Stand and getting it manufactured. We are expecting to have it ready for purchase the end of January / beginning of February. Once it is available we will be sending out a email as well as doing a introductory video. So check back then. Thanks so much for your interest it is going to be awesome!

I have my fabric at 22" wide x 27" high. Will this fit on here or do I need to get an accessory piece? If I do, do you sell it?

Please Login to comment on this post.

Donnett H.

Hi Amanda, The Lap Stand comes with 20" rods. So yes you will need to get some longer rods, I like to get rods that are a couple of inches bigger then my fabric. This way I will have room for my fingers to scroll up the fabric. So I would get 24" rods they would work well for your 22" fabric. Here is a link to all of the rods we carry. https://www.embroidery.com/product.ec?productsetID=...

Hi I'm interested in buying this lap stand but I'm wondering if the 48 inch scroll rods would fit in this? Please reply.. Also you can contact me via email Thanks :)

Please Login to comment on this post.

Donnett H.

Hi Vimal, Yes the 48' rods would work with the lap stand. Everything in this system is interchangeable which makes it so nice. You would need to purchase the lap stand, as it is the only way to get the legs, as well as the 48” rods. Let me know if you have any other questions.

hi Donna. Can you change back and forth from project to project easily? I get bored and have to change it up.

Please Login to comment on this post.

Donnett H.

That is one thing I love about the scroll frames with the no basting system it makes it super easy to change between projects.

Simply un-scroll the current project and pull right off the frame and attach the next one.

I used to have a rule that a project didn’t come off the frame till it was complete. Well then I just bought more frames hahahaha..

Hi.

I saw this lap stand on face book just a few minutes ago. Just love it. I do have one question- how to make it longer? I have fabric that can be rather large. 36 by 48.

Please Login to comment on this post.

Donnett H.

Oh Yeah I am so glad you like it! So what are the dimensions of your fabric width and height?

Can it only be used on a table? Where do you put your pattern? Does it easily turn over to the back? Have you tried the stand that you sit on, goes between your legs? Inquiring minds want to know??, and thank you. I've been interested in these frames for awhile

Deb, it depends on both the width of your project and the width of your chair whether you can put this on your chair. If your project is wide and/or your chair is narrow, you will need to sit this on a table, as the legs of this stand are obviously a bit wider apart than whatever scroll rods you put into it.

When I used this frame, I had to loosen the knobs that attach the side bars to the legs in order to access the back, then tighten them back up to stitch on the front. I honestly found that to be a bit of a hassle because the patterns I stitch tend to have a LOT of confetti and I stitch with the parking method, so I am needing to access the back for nearly every stitch.

An advantage to this frame, however, is that you can put any length scroll rods into it, if you have a table wide enough to set it on. So, you could stitch a 60" wide project, if you wanted to.

I will admit, my personal favorite stand is the one you sit on between your legs, because you can stitch a wide project in a narrow chair. It also allows one to simply lift up the project at the hinge to access the back, without loosening and tightening any knobs.

I am grateful that Embroidery.com has taken over the ADP products, and I understand the expense of manufacturing high quality hardwood products, which is the reason they have decided to only make this frame, for now. If enough of us ask for the other lap stand or the floor stand, it is maybe possible they might make them at some time in the future, even if they would be Special Order items only.

Yes is can be used on a table or on a couch it just depends on how you position it. The top pic is how I use it when I am on the couch and it sits over me. The bottom pic is how you can position it if you want it on a table top and its coming toward you. The whole frame can flip from front to back very easily.

I bought my set of this system about 25 Years ago so I have never used the one you sit on. Personally I love the EZ Scroll Frame System! Every piece is interchangeable with each other and it is so easy to put you fabric on and take it off.

Check out my blog on how to attach fabric and how to assemble the lap stand.

Hope this helps let me know if you have any other questions.
