Description

This is similar to our Original Design lap frames. The big difference is the bottom has been vented to lighten up the weight and allow any heat to "vent" off your lap. Magnets are installed on the bottom allowing you to use this frame with any of our unique bases that tilt or rotate. As you scroll through the pictures here, I have the 3 different base designs displayed for you. (The Floor Stand, Bean Bag Base and the Sit On Base) I have listed the two smaller bases, the Bean Bag Base (BBB) and the Sit On Base (SOB) in this listing. The larger Floor Stand can be purchased in my other listings.

Please watch our video on youtube for a demo. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WgMyzMEim6k

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. I have included the $15 finishing charge in the listings price. Color choices are just for looks but add beauty to the item. I haven't had a chance to type up all of the color choices, but you can email me with your choice.

Hope this helps. After reading and thinking about all of this info, most customers go with a 14" Vented Frame and a Bean Bag base. That seems to be the most popular choice these days.

Well worth the wait. Makes holding the rug fabric tight so easy. I hook the rug longer and accomplish more.
