An Overview of Frames

Needle in a Haystack covers the various types of frames for needlework that are available in this interesting blog posting.  Although the shop sells many types of frames, the owner usually stitches in hand without a frame so this is a generally unbiased report on what you can use.  It's also very interesting--I had no idea that there was a wooden "square round" hoop available!

The bottom of the article has recommendations as to what type of frame works for what type of project.  This should be very helpful for folks just starting to explore frames or who are venturing into a new type of handwork and want a frame recommendation.  Many thanks to Needle in a Haystack for such useful information!
