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

For Lay a Little Egg, we recommend either a CF249 or a CF2412 frame.

Design Size

Printed canvas area: 11.5" x 15.75" (28cm x 39cm).
