Stretcher Bars – 1/2 Frame

Stretcher Bars – 1/2 Frame

$4.25$18.95 CAD

Please note this is a listing for 1/2 a stretcher bar frame. You will need to purchase two 1/2 frames to make a complete frame. My frames may not fit together with other manufacturers frames.

Stretcher bars are inexpensive wooden embroidery frames in which the fabric can be pulled really tight. The end of the bars have teeth that you slot together to form a frame at any size that you require for your needlework. I highly recommend purchasing the brass thumb tacks which are stronger and sharper than office supplies thumb tacks or quilters thumb tacks.

Stretcher bars are inexpensive wooden embroidery frames in which the fabric can be pulled really tight. The end of the bars have teeth that you slot together to form a frame at any size that you require for your needlework. A local craftsman makes the stretcher bar frames for me; they are well made and great value for money.

I recommend the stretcher bar frames to work my hand embroidery kits in because they are very quick to assemble and the fabric stays taught in the frame. The frame can be used over and over and different length bars can be used together to create different size and shape frames.

You will require a packet of brass thumb tacks to pin the fabric to the frame. The brass thumb tacks are stronger and easier to push into the frame compared to the office supplies thumb tacks.

I also sell a hand tack kit which includes a tool to push the thumb tacks into the frame and a tool to remove the thumb tacks.

Corjac/EZ Tack Kit

$18.95$26.95 CAD

This very useful kit for Stretcher Bar Frames includes a magnetic tool to push the thumb tacks into a wooden stretcher bar frame (the tack sits at the end of the magnetic pusher so you do not have to hold the tack in position) and a tool to remove the thumb tacks from the frame. The pushing tool and the tack remover have smooth red painted wood handles or hardwood handles.

The steel thumb tacks included in the kit are strong and the heads do not come off the pins easily unlike regular office supplies tacks. The steel tacks are not quite as sharp as the brass thumb tacks that are sold in a separate box so it is good to have both.

KAI 4 inch hand embroidery scissors are the perfect all purpose hand embroidery scissors. They have sharp pointed blades and are light weight with comfortable molded handles.

The KAI scissors are made in Japan out of professionally honed stainless steel. I personally have a pair of these scissors that I have used for many years in lots of needlework techniques including cutting metal threads for goldwork and they have maintained their sharpness.
