Stretcher Bar Frames

Stretcher Bar Frames

$4.14$15.73 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.

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.

The Famore precision angled tweezers are a wonderful tool. The tweezers are smooth and comfortable to use, they are hot forged using German stainless steel and hand ground for precision and accuracy. This angled tweezers are great if you want more grip.

Great for taking out tacking threads in blackwork, manipulating metal threads in goldwork embroidery and removing unwanted threads in hand embroidery.

The case has 8 zippered compartments with durable see through panels.
