Client was very keen on sewing and tapestry but, as a result of a stroke, she can no longer use her left hand/arm.

A pair of plywood boards was made to allow the item to be sewn to be held steady with plastic spring clips. Cunningly shaped holes allowed the needle to be passed through the cloth. The boards can be rotated to present a different shaped hole for different jobs. They can be used together to darn a sleeve. The arrangement clamps to the client’s table.
