With an embroidery hoop your fabric will be held taut and securely in place to maintain consistent tension while doing your handwork. Metal " L" brackets with a brass screw for tightening allows you to work with any fabric thickness you desire. The hoop is lightweight and has a sanded smooth finish.
Perfect for embroidery or cross stitch and a good size for children.
Note: A hoop can be helpful for a child's cross stitch project but is not necessary. In fact, many beginner Waldorf cross stitch projects are smaller than will fit in the hoop. A cross stitch pin cushion or sachet is a typical Waldorf 4th grade project.
