I did take a few pictures of frames with my iphone, because my friend Susan's husband is making prototypes of frames and she was keen to show him this easy one.
A couple of the hookers from Deep River had these, which were made by one of the husbands.
|A mitred rectangular head is wrapped in fabric into which the work is pinned.||A bolt is put into the sides of the frame.|
|The bolt slips into a groove in a side panel which raises it off the table or your lap.|
|The sides are attached to a base with piano hinges. Since this one was just for "the wife" he used leftover boards for the base.|
Handy husbands seem to be the drivers of innovation in rug hooking equipment. I, unfortunately, did not have "handy" on my list of qualities when choosing. And as a result, I have become the handy one.
Oh well, he has lots of other fine qualities and I am certainly not complaining.
BTW, Jennifer Manuell does have pictures from the hook-in, so please go and visit her blog.
