Review of Barnetts Laptop Hoops

I have been trying out different hoops from Barnett's Laptop Hoops still trying to find just the right one for me.  Harry Barnett is such a nice guy to work with.  He has been very patient with me on my search for the right hoop and I'm sure I haven't been the easiest of customers  :-).  I really like the craftsmanship, it is absolutely wonderful on these hoops and stands.  And to be honest I was quite surprised at how sturdy they are and how well built they are.  You couldn't ask for a better more sturdy hoops.  Even my husband has said the craftsmanship is excellent.  Harry has several options of bases you can choose from as well.  I have chosen his new product, the bean bag base.  It has a lazy Susan in it so that it can spin.  While I like the sit on base it just doesn't work for me since I only wear dresses and because I quilt from my recliner.  So it's the bean bag for me.   My hoop is the 14 inch square hoop.  I have tried both the round and the square hoops and while both are excellent I think I like the square frame for the way it hold my quilt while I'm quilting and keeps it square and it gives me just a tad more room. So if you are in the market for a good quality quilting hoop look over the website  You'll be glad you did.


  1. That is always nice when we find a tool that works well for us.


  2. I just got my 14 inch round hoop & I love it!!! I had a plastic double hoop and it worked well but after a few quilts it just doesn't stay together...glad I got my Barnett's hoop. If my sisters & nieces like it I'll be placing a big order for Christmas presents!!!
