Stretcher Bars – 1/2 Frame

Stretcher Bars – 1/2 Frame

$3.45$15.39 USD

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.

Au ver A Soie is the manufacturer of fine silk thread and yarns in France since 1820. Soie d’alger is a seven ply stranded silk, each strand is twisted. The silk comes in a 5 meter pull skein which means you can pull the thread out without¬† removing the label.

I have dark yellow (gold), light yellow (gold), grey (silver), brown (copper), bright red, dark red and black which can be used for couching down metal threads and for silk shading when doing goldwork embroideries.

Chenille Needles have a large eye and a sharp point and are great for ribbon embroidery and as a plunging needle for goldwork embroidery. Chenille needles can also be used for heavy surface embroidery such as crewel and Mountmellick. I carry a variety packet in which the needles range from size 18 (largest) to size 24 (smallest) and I sell the No. 18 chenille needle separately for goldwork embroidery.
