*Rug Hooking Barnett's Laptop Hoop Frame - 12" Original Design

  • If you are not a fan of gripper frames, these lap frames are the perfect alternative.  The 12" frame pictured here is the perfect travel size frame.  Take this one to your next hook-in or retreat.
  • Large tri-knob makes adjustments easy on your fingers.  The extra long bolt will accommodate the thickest rugs.
  • Notice the 3 magnets installed in the bottom.  These will clip on to the lazy-Susan spinners that are installed on our 3 bases allowing the frame to tilt & rotate in any direction.  Upgrade your frame and add a base to your purchase.
  • Floor Stand is typically used for our larger frames but is compatible with all of our Original Design or Vented Frames.
  • This is the Sit On Base.  One large knob on the side allows you to adjust the angle and the lazy-Susan will rotate the frame a full 360 degrees.  There are three different height settings on the pivot block.
  • The Bean Bag Base is so simple to use.  Just squish the bean bag into the most comfortable angle and the lazy-Susan will rotate the frame a full 360 degrees.
  • Add beauty and protection.  For a little extra have it custom finished.
  • Your choice of seven colors or just have it clear coated.

Product Description

Travel Size - 12" is very small for most rug projects but I offer it due to special requests. 

This 12" Original Design Laptop Hoop Frame is specifically designed for the rug hooking. Most rug hookers will start out with a basic craft store hoop and will use it a few times until it breaks.  This frame has an extra large hoop that is thicker and stronger than any other hoop on the market today.  The hoop is 2" in depth and has been mounted on 3 legs that elevate the rug off of your lap to a comfortable height.  A large 8" bolt has been installed for the extra thick rugs and a very easy to use, tri-knob comes standard on all rug hooking frames.  3 magnets are pre-installed in the bottom allowing you to use it on any of our three unique lap bases. (Sit-On, Bean Bag and Floor Stand)

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 hoop/frame, you 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.  You should pick a hoop that seems most comfortable for the current project.  The most purchased size is a 16" frame/hoop and the 18" comes in as a close second place purchase. Many hookers 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.  

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."
