Wire frames


20130215-141415.jpgThese wire frames are available in three sizes, 120 x 120mm, 120 x 180 mm, 180 x 180mm. They are very versatile, you can wind thread onto them and then stitch into it to create original fabric, working by hand or machine. You can use thread that is difficult to pass through fabric in the normal way. It may be stubby or textured or just too thick, or it may be fragile and easily broken. Open lacey fabrics or densely stitched fabrics can be made. The resulting fabric can be applied to another fabric or cut and pieced as fragments.
Frames cost £4, £4.50, and £5. a set of three, one of each size costs £10.50.
