Founded in 2006 we’re a family-run company, small enough to care, big enough to get the job done! We’ve taken an American idea, and adapted it to fit in our smaller, European homes.
Please note: We do not sell the frames entirely on the website. We ask that you only put down a deposit on the website, as we like to give our customers a call and discuss shipping, timing and everything personally.
No space? No problem! This little frame is designed with the textile artist in mind. It sets up like an easel and is ideal for smaller quilts and wall hangings. The frame clamps to any 4 foot X 2 foot 6 inch table and gives 3 feet (90cm) of quilting space. Using quilt-as-you-go methods, this 4 foot Art Quilter frame can even tackle larger bed-sized quilts.
Just like our larger models, this frame comes ready assembled so setting up is easy. Just take the arms out of the box, clamp them to your table, lay down the tracks, pop on the carriages, drop in the fabric poles and you’re ready to go. Our fabric poles come with the leader fabric riveted to the poles. The deck chair fabric gives this frame a quintessentially English feel while the stripes act as a guide for leading your quilt on the frame.
