Stretcher Bar Frames

Stretcher Bar Frames

$4.07$15.47 USD

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 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.

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. The frame can be used over and over and different length bars can be used together to create different size and shape frames.

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. Please see the individual kit listings for the size stretcher bar frame that you require for the particular design.

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.

Cashel linen fabric has 28 threads of fabric to the inch and is 100% linen. The fabric has a natural look as the threads of the fabric are not even.

Why Call it Blackwork? book is my favourite blackwork book for choosing designs for my blackwork projects.
Marion gives excellent tips and instructions for design inspiration, choice of patterns, shading, how to transfer a design and 14 pages of Blackwork patterns with about 18 designs on each page. It is a very valuable book if you are inspired to create your own designs.
