Choosing  a Tapestry Frame

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

For Dotty Heart, we recommend a 12" CF129 tapestry 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 is particularly useful for beginners as it leaves both hands free for stitching. 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 Dotty Heart, 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.
