The Original Lap-Stitch Frame is designed to set on your lap or table and allows you to stitch without holding the frame or fabric. You will not have hoop rings, dirty fabric or uneven stitches in your project. The frame contains four sets of dowels, 6", 9", 12", and 18". This is actually a four-in-one set! The Lap-Stitch Frame can be used for cross stitch, needlepoint, crewel embroidery, and quilting.
