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.

Understanding that everyone has a different sense of style and preferred aesthetic, we are offering 6 different stand combinations to choose from. Scroll down for a break down of each of the combinations.

Assembly and care instructions will be included. All you need to assemble will be a Philips Head screwdriver.


  • Half moon shaped clamp to hold a large variety of embroidery hoop sizes
  • Swivel feature to allow easy access to front and back of embroidery piece quickly and to adjust angle for sewing as needed.
  • 3 adjustable joints to allow for maximum customisation of position while sewing
  • Magnet embedded on top of the stand for holding scissors or needles as you sew
  • Made from recycled timber (three colours blonde, brown and red)
  • 3 feature colour options to choose from
  • Gold hardware for a luxe feel
  • Long timber base (either raw or painted) to balance on desk tops without over tipping and also sits comfortable under your leg as you sew on a bed/couch.

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. 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.

Please take note of shipment recommendations from Auspost here. Also please note that selecting the Express Post option does not speed up our processing/handling time. This is a service that Australia Post offers in relation to the actual postage of your order.

    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.

    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
