12 Inch Stretcher Bar Frame and Thumb Tacks

12 Inch Stretcher Bar Frame and Thumb Tacks

$13.52 USD

I recommend the stretcher bar frame to work my hand embroidery kit in because the frame is quick to assemble and the fabric stays taught in the frame. The frame comes with brass thumb tacks and a tack remover. The frame can be used over and over so if you purchase more than one of my kits you can use the same frame if it is the right size.

The 12 inch stretcher bar frame is an inexpensive wooden embroidery frame in which the fabric can be pulled really tight. The end of the bars have teeth that you slot together to form the frame. The fabric pinned onto the frame using brass thumb tacks. I recommend the stretcher bar frame to work my hand embroidery kit in because the frame is quick to assemble and the fabric stays taught in the frame.

A local craftsman makes the stretcher bar frames for me; they are well made and great value for money.

Needles – Size 10 or 12 Crewel Embroidery

<a href="https://berlinembroidery.com/product-category/uncategorized/" rel="tag">Uncategorized</a>
$3.28 USD

The size 10 crewel embroidery needle is used in my surface embroidery kits such as: Carrickmacross Lace, Fine White Work, Goldwork, Modern Jacobean, Needle Painting and Shadow Work.

My kits come with two needles but you may want to purchase more of the needles as size 10 embroidery/crewel needles, in case you mislay your needle as the size 10 crewel embroidery needles can be hard to find in craft stores as they are smaller than regular sewing needles.

I also carry the size 12 crewel embroidery needles. I often use these for sewing down purl threads in goldwork or if I am working a very fine needle painting design.
