Re-usable 12 x 12 inch carpet gripper frame for punch needle embroidery. The frame is made from wood, with carpet tacks/gripper attached for stretching the foundation fabric. The frame is supplied with felt for protecting your hands from the tacks once the fabric is stretched.
When using a punch needle taut fabric is essential for allowing the needle to move freely through the fabric. The carpet tacks/gripper keeps the fabric tight so it doesn't move when punching.
The frame is best used with a strong foundation cloth such as monks cloth or primitive linen.
This is a handmade item which will be sent assembled with the felt attached, however because of the sharp tacks please be careful when opening.
This listing is for one frame with felt for protecting those dainty hands. Or why not add one a piece of monks cloth or two and then you are ready to get punching!
