There is a chart for planning the name panel, squared paper and tips/ instructions included in the both the Complete Kit and Canvas Only options of Alphabet Owls.

Choosing  a Tapestry Frame

A tapestry frame is not essential, but does help to prevent your work going out of shape and makes it easy to resume stitching the next day or after a break. We stock a good range of British made no-sew tapestry clip frames which take only a few minutes to assemble. As the canvas is attached by easy clips, the frames allow you to switch between projects if necessary.

For Alphabet Owls, we recommend a 24" frame, either a CF249 or a CF2412 tapestry frame. The CF249 is 24" wide with 9" sidebars and the CF2412 is 24" wide with 12" sibebars.
