I love it! It is made from wood and is adjustable both in height and angle. It comes with a piece of sandpaper attached to the top for ease in tracing your shapes on to your fabric for applique. The padded fabric cover has a pocket to put your scissors into or whatever you prefer. It also comes with an ironing cover. On the base there are three posts perfect for holding your thread, and a small magnet to hold your needle.
It is comfortable to use and works so well for applique. I think that it would also work well for english paper piecing or anything else that you are more comfortable resting your arms on. I bought mine on Amazon through the Lap App company, but there are other places available. Sarah Fielke also sells them on her website here. You just need to do a search and you will find them.
