Floor frames

I've recently bought a floor frame and as my aida is quite wide I'm having difficulty in putting my right hand under fabric to stitch top left hand corner, so much so that I've taken it off frame and doing it free hand ! Any advice/help would be much appreciated.

    Turn your pattern and frame upside down. Then the left upper corner will become the right lower corner and easier to stitch. Your stitches will be in the same direction so you should not notice any difference. Once you get to an easier place to stitch, you can turn both back to normal. You just have to train your eye to see the pattern a little differently but should not take long for the brain to adapt. Hope this helps. Go to top
