Choosing a Tapestry Frame
A tapestry frame is not essential but can be helpful for beginners as it leaves both hands free for stitching.
For Lion, 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.
Printed canvas area: 4" x 4" (10cm x 10cm)
Canvas size 10" x 10" (25cm x 25cm)
Complete Kit, Canvas Only
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 Lion, 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.
