Stretcher Bar Frames

Stretcher Bar Frames

$4.07$15.48 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.

Wire needle threaders are for all sizes of needles but are most useful for fine needles as it enables you to thread the really small eyed needles easier.
The metal wire loop of the needle threader is threaded into the eye of the needle (much easier than threading in a strand of thread), the thread is then threaded into the wire loop of the threader and then the wire loop and embroidery thread are pulled back through the eye of the needle, the thread is now threaded into the needle.

The Aida fabric is 100% cotton. I have 14 count and 16 count available.

The threads of the fabric are easy to count as they are are all the same size making it easy to see the holes in the fabric. 14 or 16 represents how many threads of fabric there are to the inch. 14 count fabric is easiest to see.

The fabric is durable, firm to the feel and handles taking out stitches well and can be washed once the embroidery is complete.
