notforgotten farm frame…

Several of you have asked how I like the Lori Brechlin Notforgotten Farm hooking/punch needle frame I purchased.  Do I like it?  You Betcha!  It’s just perfect, as far as I’m concerned!  (You can click here to see my first post regarding the frame.)  So, would I recommend it for every puncher out there?  You Betcha!

Lori’s gripper frame is just right for small embroidery patterns, and my first project, using the frame, was a Polly Minick punch needle flag.

Whilst I was punching this project my weavers cloth stayed drum tight on the frame ~ absolutely no slippage!   And, I didn’t need anything over my arms or over the grippers to protect me from gripper-attack ~ not once did I draw blood or even mar the surface of my skin while punching.  What a delightful change from my hooking frame where I take my life in my hands each time I use it, (unless I remember to cover my arms and the grippers, and I usually do remember, directly after my first flesh wound).

All this modeling is exhausting for Ellis, but he still…..

Until next time ~ be as light of heart as you can be!
