Cindi asked:

Can anyone tell me what the 18th century needleworkers used to hold their
work while stitching?  I'm wishing to duplicate it for Revolutionary War
reenactments.  It seems the books I've looked all will describe work, but
none really write about needlework accessories.  Any ideas?

Their hands?  Sorry, I just couldn't resist.
