I recommend the Planetary Collage sewing frame made by Tim Ely. It's
not cheap, but highly (and easily) adjustable and robust. You can
see images at <URL:

I had a wooden cantilevered one at home, and have a traditional
wooden one in the lab at work. This one beats them both. Very high
quality materials and workmanship, too. No, I'm not receiving
anything for the endorsement, just a happy customer.
