Q-Snaps are INDISPENSIBLE to all the stitchers in Salty Yarns! They are a very lightweight frame, designed to hold your needlework fabric tight, and straight on the grain...for neater and easier stitching. There are several sizes available... and each set in interchangeable with the others. It has taken the place of hoops for us and most of our stitchers.  Comes in many sizes, however, the 6" and 8" are my favorites and I manage to do everything using either one or the other.

Morgan Hoops....Morgan Hoop Company

The same great quality as the hoops in the Morgan Stands... these are the individual hoops. Really sturdy  these are far superior for tension than our regular hoops. These won't 'bend' if your fabric is super tight as you need the fabric to be in stitching or punchneedle.  While they cost more than the normal hoop, these are so worth it,  as you won't have to constantly adjust fabric to keep your tension even.
