Sewing frames

From: Ian Bogus <ian.bogus<-a>

Our sewing frame has finally bit the dust and I have been trying to
find another.  Most of the ones I have found are relatively simple
and straightforward but of course seeing a picture often makes
quality and usability issues difficult to assess.  Does anyone have
suggestions on particular frames?  I recall seeing cantilevered one
without the adjustable posts; has anyone used it or know if they are
still being made?
