Last week I spent a good few days searching Cape Town high and low for a threading hoop stand. I have seen them all over Etsy, eBay and Amazon and although I could order this way, I just didn’t feel like waiting months for one to arrive, especially with the amount I’ve been stitching. I have to say I am amazed at how hard it is sometimes to find supplies still. After 3 days I managed to find something remotely resembling something I was after at a backend shop in the middle of nowhere. I got it home and took it apart and rebuilt it to my own specs. I few cuts and hurts later I now have my own stand.
I’m feeling pretty stoked with myself.
