Frames and Hoops

Basic Quilting Tools and Supplies

Today, most hand quilters prefer the use of hoops to the confinement of large floor frames. Frames require a great deal of space, and in some households there just isn't room for them.
Plastic frames, wooden hoops in all shapes and sizes and full-size floor frames are available. The cost can be as little as $10 or as high as $500 or more for a fancy frame.
To find the best choice for you, ask others their preference. Try to borrow and use several types of hoops and frames before you make a purchase. Every quilter has a favorite way of doing things, and what works for one won't always work for another. Don't spend a lot of money for something you may never use. Experiment and make your purchase when you know what works best for you.
