Product Description

This is the 10" Travel Size Frame and is for your small quilt projects, cross stitching or other needle arts. This is the perfect size to take to your next guild meeting or on a long road trip. Easy Turn T-Knob is now standard on all frames.  In addition, 3 small magnets are installed on the bottom for future upgrades to your lap frame.  This allows an easy transition if you should ever want to purchase one of our three base units that tilt and spin.  


How to choose the best size hoop or frame... If you are trying to select the correct size hoop, try this tip:


"To select the correct quilting hoop/frame, a quilter should measure the distance from the inside of the elbow to the second joint of the first finger or to the tip of your middle finger. I have seen both of these measurements quoted . These lengths are the largest diameter quilting hoops/frames that can be used comfortably, without causing shoulder or back pain.  Each quilter should pick a hoop that seems most comfortable for the current project.  The most purchased size is a 14" frame/hoop and the 16" comes in as a close second place purchase. Many quilters will often purchase several sizes of hoops/frames, including a little 12" travel frame for on-the-go projects or smaller projects.  Adding other options such as a tilting base or one that can rotate will only add to your hand quilting experience.  Larger 16" or 18" frames work best when used on my Floor Stand.  The issues with weight and size can be overcome by using this style of base.  


Now should I go with a traditional round or a square hoop? Hmmm? Why use a square hoop vs. a round hoop? Well, to start, a square hoop has a little more surface area in those four corners. For example, a 14" square hoop has the same surface area as a 16" round hoop. This means you don't have to move the fabric in and out of a hoop as much. Next, the square hoop can be used when quilting borders and blocks. You can secure three sides of your quilt equally, and have the edge of the border running through the center of the hoop, and quilt all the way to the edge. When the block fits inside the hoop, it allows you to quilt one block at a time without moving the hoop as often.


Adding a finish to your purchase in my opinion is a smart move. By clear coating the item it will seal and protect the wood for years of use. Think of it as a small piece of prized furniture. Color choices are just for looks but add beauty to the item."

  1. Extraordinary travel hoop 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 30th Aug 2018

    The long awaited travel hoop arrived safely. I immediately put it to use. Although I have never hand embroidered, it was a goal. Following instructions I put the fabric in the hoop. The large screw and wide rings made the task so easy. The wood in the hoop is extraordinarily smooth and appears seamless. It is amazing to run your hand over the wood (which I do frequently) and not feel any burrs! The hoop with the attached pillow is very comfortable and easy to adjust to the needed angle for embroidering. Thank you, Harry, for a very special embroidery unit. Will highly recommend the hoop to all my friends.
