Narcissi and Daffodils needlepoint kit by Primavera.
You may be wondering what needlepoint frames are. Essentially, they are wooden frames to which your needlepoint canvas is attached while you stitch.Needlepoint frames are also often called stretcher bars, which is a type of needlepoint frame.
Not only do needlepoint frames keep your canvas taut, and your stitches more even, but attaching your canvas to a frame will also help it to stay clean. If the needlepoint is on a frame you handle it less.
When you use a frame, you are essentially "hands free", especially if you attach the frame to a stand. This means you can keep one hand at the back of the canvas to feed the needle through and the other hand at the front of the canvas to guide from this direction. There is less joint movement involved and therefore less risk of your hands tiring and becoming sore. Just something to keep in mind if you plan to stitch a lot or for long periods of time.
There are a few different styles of needlepoint frame you can choose from. Any of these work well and the type you choose will depend upon your personal preference.
