Choosing  a Tapestry Frame

A tapestry frame is not essential, but is useful for beginners as it leaves both hands free for stitching.

For Birds of a Feather, we recommend a CF129 frame but choose one of the larger frames with code ending in '9' if you think you will stitch larger projects in the future.

Design Size

Printed canvas area: 4" x 4" (10cm x 10cm), canvas size 10" x 10" (25cm x 25cm)

Choosing a 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 only take a few minutes to assemble. As the canvas is attached by clips, the frames allow you to switch between projects if necessary.

For Birds of a Feather, we recommend a CF129 frame but choose one of the larger frames with code ending in ‘9’ if you think you will stitch larger projects in the future.
