|When I first learned of Needle Punch|
I was at a local
fiber show. The owner of a small
wool provider explained
(logically) the basics of the craft.
His wife was away from booth at time.
He made this wonderful wooden frame.
|I like how my little storage box |
fits nicely under frame
when not in use.
|I especially like that it pivots|
and can be fastened to stay in place too.
|The edging is carding strips|
to hold fabric taunt
so it can be pulled
|Of course the corner don't have sharp edging|
|The red wool cover makes working|
on frame nice
so hands don't get pricked by
|Even a small zip lock of fabric can be stored under frame|
making it easy to travel with project.
|The underside is the 'right side' of work area.|
So when creating a punch needle
we work from the 'wrong side' which is
on top of frame.
|You can see through weaver cloth|
and the pattern you see here is actually
from the back side.
|For small projects I like using hand held hoop plastic frames.|
