Sewing Frame

Christopher Clarkson (in the UK) has designed a new style
cantilevered sewing frame. It has been manufactured in limited
quantities and comes flat in a wooden case - I think further 'runs'
are planned if orders are forthcoming.  The cost of the frames is
quite high, around 100 pounds sterling, but they are very well
constructed and solve many of the problems associated with existing
'upright' frames. 'The Paper Conservator' journal Vol 19 (1995), pub.
by the Institute of Paper Conservation in the UK (ISSN 0309-4227) has
anarticle on sewing frame design by Christopher Clarkson. He can be
