My wife does cross-stitchery. While I built the fram she uses for holding the fabric, I am still not sure what the heck this thing is or what it does. She likes it. That's good enough for me.
Although advertised for using to follow needle work patterns, this item comes in handy anytime you need to track information. I purchased mine to help me keep my place on beading patterns. My daughter uses it to follow recipes in our very small kitchen. This folder opens out to make a small easel that takes up very little space. The outside of the folder is textured, red, faux leather that easily wipes clean. My only concern is the poor quality of material covering the surface you attach the instructions & magnets to. My daughter says we can replace it with contact paper or other fabric when it gets worn .
I bought this since I have a really large cross stitch pattern I'm working on. It helps having threaded needles for those stitches you don'tuse that often while completing the project. My only criticism is that you have to be careful in moving it since the threads sometimes come off the needles. That's not something I think can be fixed though.
