Embroidery Frames
A range of hand held and lap/table frames, suitable for cross stitch, embroidery, needlepoint,
punch needle, quilting etc.

Strongly constructed from plastic tubes, they are very lightweight, and extremely durable.  We have stitched virtually all of our 200 plus kits on just one frame, which is still as good as new after countless years.  The work is held firmly but gently, and the tension can be varied.  If your design is larger than the frame size, then unlike wooden rings or frames, you can safely move your work across the frame without the stitches being flattened, or the fabric being marked.  

Small table / lap frame  >>

Includes two sizes in one pack, and folds flat for easy storage. Choice of 11" x 11" or 8" x 11".  Allows both hands to be used for stitching.  Our most popular and versatile frame.

9" x 9"- £10.95

Note - you can interchange sides amongst these three frames, but they will not fit the table/lap frames

Please note:
