Let’s face it, having an embroidery stand makes an embroiderer’s life 1000 times simpler. Yes, it is very possible to embroider without one, but my goodness having one makes all the difference. I was gifted one earlier this year and since then, I have been on the hunt for an Australian made, sustainably sourced and ultra functional / adjustable stand that I could recommend. But the thing is … I couldn’t find one. So I did the next best thing and partnered with a local woodsmith, Lumber Lust, to create what you see today. So without any further adieu …

Life with Bess and Lumber Lust are excited to introduce you to our one of a kind, 100% Australian made timber embroidery stands. Not just functional, but minimal and aesthetic too!! We pride ourselves on not only using 95% recycled timber, but also supporting Australian businesses with the hardware and avoiding single use plastic in our shipping materials.

PLEASE NOTE – due to the use of recycled timber and the hand made nature of these stands, there may be imperfections and variations in the timber/paint work from the photos. Personally, we love these imperfections in the timber however we will endeavour to always create the highest quality of product in all areas. Because of this we do not offer refunds on our stands due to imperfections. However if there is any malfunctions, breakage excessive to standard wear and tear we will replace the piece at no extra cost. Please note that any unpainted elements of the embroidery stand will be kept raw (meaning no staining) and has already been sanded and beautifully presented. As these are individually crafted, please take care with your piece as they could splinter if dropped.

    This stand is GORGEOUS! I’m obsessed with non-mass produced items, and this is no exception. I’ve been wanting a stand for so long, but have balked at ordering from overseas. So sturdy, easy to use and BONUS: it looks SO good. I don’t feel the need to pack it away, it’s almost like a feature piece on my desk!

    Have just received my blonde stand and I love it. The wood and all pieces are so nice to touch, well made and sturdy. Looks beautiful too. The fact that it’s all Australian made is a huge thing for me. A great addition to my embroidery kit. Well done LWB on a fab product.

    An absolutely gorgeous stand that I couldn’t be more in love with. I’d been searching for a sustainable and Aussie made stand for a while, and I came across this at the perfect time. The quality is excellent, the colours of the paint and wood gorgeous, and the stand itself is so mobile and versatile that it moves anywhere I need to put it as I cross stitch. The gold screws and wingnuts give it a wonderfully luxurious appearance, and little touches like the magnet are so helpful and show this has been well thought out and designed by an experienced needle pointer who knows what is useful and needed. I couldn’t be more pleased with it and already have requests from friends to take it for a test drive! Thank you for making an amazing product.

    This stand is absolutely stunning! It was so good to see all of the heart that went into making the stands on Instagram. When I received it in the mail, it did not disappoint! The packaging, the instructions and the product are absolutely perfect. I love being able to able to leave it out for easy use and it adds the perfect touch to my craft area.

  5. Lauren Elizabeth (verified owner)

    Absolutely gorgeous product. You can tell love and care went into making it. High quality materials and a luxe feel to boot! Arrived packaged beautiful and sustainably and incredibly easy to put together. So functional and has definitely helped me embroider with ease! Also great to know I am supporting a high quality, conscious, woman owned small business!

  6. Christie (verified owner)

    I had been eyeing off stands for a little while and am so glad I went for one of these. It ticks all the boxes, functional and easily adjustable, sustainable, Australian made and of course lovely to look at! For someone who doesn’t like needle minders, the magnet is a game changer and my left hand is eternally grateful. Life with Bess stand – 1, tennis elbow – 0!

  7. Rachael (verified owner)

    This stand is perfect! I’d wanted a stand for so long, but all the highly rated ones were overseas and out of my price range – thank goodness for this one! Australian made, small businesses supported, and not to mention its super cute, easy to put together, and sturdy. Works perfectly on a table top, or on your lap, and holds any size of hoop – Thankyou so much for making these!

  8. Maddy (verified owner)

    This stand is awesome! I’m reasonably new to embroidery but already I’ve seen the difference in my stitching, plus the fact it looks awesome when I’m working on projects. I love the green and wood, and seriously would buy another one if this one ever needed replacing.

  9. Brooke Stanford

    Absolutely fantastic product! Great design, ergonomically, and love that it is made from recycled timber. Comes with super easy to read assembly instructions, and beautifully packaged.

    My embroidery has become a lot easier, less neck strain, less hand staining on my fabric, and it helps to keep my fabric nice and tight in the hoop.

    When I initially purchased this stand I had doubts about whether or not I truly needed it as I am so new to embroidery and it is an investment, but now after using it for a few months I don’t know what I would do without it! Not only is it both beautiful and sturdy but it is just so useful, I find it so much easier to do things such as french knots when I have both hands available. This embroidery stand is by far one of the best things I purchased in 2020 and I couldn’t imagine embroidery without it! It is well and truly worth the money, its a brilliant product and I love knowing its made from recycled timber by two Australian businesses

  11. Jessica (verified owner)

    These stands are so incredibly beautiful and clearly well made with so much love and attention to detail. Also love that they’re made from recycled timber. The design of the packaging, tape etc also made my day with how beautiful and put together it all was. I’m only new to embroidery however I know my stand is going to make everything a million times easier and cannot wait to use it!

  12. Cesira m (verified owner)

    Love the stand ! It’s been made beautifully and is easy to put together and use ! Don’t know how I’ve lived without one all this time ! I came across bess on tiktok and I’m so glad I did !

  13. Tegan Bortignon (verified owner)

    The stand is stunning, easy to put together and absolutely worth the wait. Bess and co also delivered amazing customer service when I had issues placing an order. Highly recommend the product AND supporting this lovely small business

  14. Hannah Duckett

    Wowza! This stand is not only incredibly functional but it’s truly gorgeous as well. I love that it’s consciously made from recycled wood and that you can absolutely tell it was made with so much love. This is hands down the best embroidery purchase I have made! I’ve had nothing but great experiences with Bess and cannot Rex come to this stand or bee company enough.

  15. Bel McLaren

    Bess and Jake have gone above and beyond to create, not only the most BEAUTIFUL and functional embroidery stand I have ever seen, but they also made the effort to try to get my stand to me by my birthday after my partner emailed them to let them know that it was a gift.
    So much care and effort has gone in to every aspect of this stand, and just the business in general, and it shows! You two amaze me every single day. Your dedication to making each piece so perfect is awe inspiring.
    I will be forever grateful to you both, and my stand is the perfect reminder of how kind some people can be.
    Thanks again guys!

    My stand just arrived today and I couldn’t wait to put it together! It’s beautiful, has such a nice design and it was so easy to assemble. Of course I had to try it out and it is just fantastic! It moves exactly where you need it to. It’s simple just to flip the half moon over to finish the back of your stitching. And no more hunching over! My neck is thankful! One of the coolest features is the magnet to hold your scissors or needle! I love this stand. So glad I ordered one for me and one for my daughter in law. She’s going to love it as well! (It also only took 12 days to get to Canada!)

  17. Kamille (verified owner)

    Lovely stand, beautifully designed and so functional. I have the Tibetan Tea and I absolutely love it. Took a while to get to me, I ordered 1 March and received my order in mid-April but each piece is individually made so despite this issue Bess was always responsive in her messages. Would still recommend, worth the wait.

  18. Kathy (verified owner)

    I am so in love with my Forever Peach stand, which matches perfectly with the rest of my studio. I missed out on the last run and had waited so eagerly for this restock. It was so worth the wait. Everything arrived beautifully wrapped (eco-friendly too!) and it was easy to assemble. It has definitely made hand embroidery easier and quicker too. I no longer fiddle with French Knots. It is definitely a great investment for a beginner like me. I completely recommend this.

  19. Miriam Lowe (verified owner)

    I’m totally obsessed with my Embroidery stand (in the delish colour forever peach!) from first getting the stand in it’s beautifully wrapped pieces and the easily assembling of it all (video link on instructions card) to then using the stand and realising I could stitch for a lot longer as I wasn’t getting cramps in my hand from holding the hoop.

    It’s like how did I live without this?
    This embroidery stand is definitely a need not a want.

    Also it doubles as a beautiful piece of artwork, which looks stunning in my craft space.

  20. Nicole (verified owner)

    This embroidery stand is a life changer! Makes embroidering so much easier and the quality is really good! I love the design and the colours! 🙂

    In addition to being practical, this hoop stand is so beautiful and decorates a room very well. If you embroider, you need it !
