Choosing  a Tapestry Frame

A tapestry frame is not essential, but using one will help to prevent work going out of shape as well as making it easy to resume stitching the next day or after a break. Children may find it easier to focus on the tapestry if they aren't also having to physically hold on to their tcanvas as they stitch.

We stock a good range of British made no-sew tapestry clip frames which only take a few minutes to assemble. The canvas is attached by easy clips, allowing you to switch between projects if necessary.

For Starry Sky Robin a 12" CF129 frame is a good size. If you may want to stitch a larger design in the future, choose one of the wider frames with code ending in '9' and place your canvas in the centre of the frame when you stitch it.

See all of our tapestry clip frames in our Frames and Accessories category.
