“I love doing the tapestries. It’s so relaxing and a real escape. I’m currently working on the alphabet canvas and hoping I’ll finish it before Harriet knows the whole alphabet!”

Choosing  a Tapestry Frame

A tapestry frame is not essential, but will help to prevent your canvas from going out of shape. A frame also makes it easy to resume stitching the next day or after a break.

We stock a tried and tested range of British made no-sew tapestry clip frames which are quick to assemble. As the canvas is attached by easy clips, you can easily switch projects if necessary. If going on holiday, just take off the side bars and roll up your canvas - hey presto, ready to travel.

For our A-Z Animals tapestry kits, we recommend a CF189 tapestry frame, as a smaller CF129 will be a bit of a squeeze. Choose a larger frame with code ending in '9' if you are likely to stitch cushion sized designs in the future.

See all our frames here in our Tapestry Frames and Accessories category.
