Makes a huge difference, especially for beginners. Really well made, love the feel of the fabrics used. Will order another in an alternate size for versatility, the size I have is great, but want to try the semi-circular model. Thanks for making these, and for the reminder, will order now!
I purchased the Half Moon board. I have 2 rectangular beading boards and find them very useful. The Half Moon shape seemed like it would be useful for travel in the car, and smaller work surfaces. However, I found that it is unstable and tilts forward easily when my my forearms are on the front edge. It doesn't take much effort to tilt the board and have all the beads roll down. The board is well made, the fabrics are soft, and seem sturdy. But the design (base is smaller than the outer rim) is not practical. This was a disappointing and expensive purchase. Cheers
Less dropping and losing beads with the larger size mat.
