Linn, how do you hold your slate frame when you work on it?
I use something called Trestles (sort of a fancy adjustable set of sawhorses) that I learned to use at the RSN. I bought mine from a shop in Canada - they are not as sturdy as the RSN sort and I may make a set of my own one of these days. Another good prop is an ironing board because you can adjust the height and then put a couple of bricks on the top of the frame. I know folks who simply C-clamp them to furniture and a Lowry frame is not bad to hold them either.
Now - what have you been stitching on that frame????
