or the back of a wooden chair, or a board temporarily held in place by something weighty.MMWRay said:I prefer the edge of the table type. Use a different table.
Umm ... It's called 'umbrella' for a reason. I can't speak about the all wood ones, but my wires and plastic strips one fits in a 2" diameter mailing tube about 18" long.ckmc said:I have the one that sits on the table top and it works great. I've had zero problems with it. I have no where in my house to use or store an umbrella swift. My Amish swift easily comes apart and stores in a relatively small space.
I haven't used that little handle ... yet. The day may come.flpat said:I have that same swift. I bought it recently because I was watching a video by Pink and she was telling what she liked about hers. Since I was in the market, I went right away and ordered it. Think it ran under $15. I love it and it never wobbles. The instructions were very clear as to the size table it needed, luckily my craft table in the sunroom was perfect. I have it mounted and my ball winder and am always ready to go. It umbrella folds up out of my way when I don't need it but is still mounted. One of the things she especially liked was that it had a little handle on the top for when you need to wind from a ball to a skein...I never thought I would use that part, but when I had to frog my shawl it sure came in handy.
There are a few chairs around my dining room table ... somewhere beneath the many items that have accumulated with the phrase 'for the moment' said when placed. Only one chair isn't so festooned, my darling's. Only two things reside upon it - one of his terry bathrobes and a sweater he puts on when chilled.KateLyn11 said:My big wood umbrella swift lives in an old yoga mat carrying case. It can sit on a shelf or get hung in a closet when not in use, so size being an issue for storage has always left me puzzled. If I need only short storage it can hang on a dining room chair for a few days.
