New Rug Hooking & Punch Needle Embroidery Accessories

We've added to our line of rug hooking and punch needle embroidery accessories. in addition to carrying hooks, slip free hoops, linen, weaver's cloth, etc. Olympic Wool Works is now producing  a lap top rug hooking (and/or quilting hoop) and a range of hooking and punching frames.

These frames are available in 6.5, 10, 14, and 18 inch sizes. We're in the process of designing and making some of these frames with a base, similar to the hoop pictured above. We made these frames out of baltic birch, gripper strips, and put a clear coat finish on them. The frame for the hoop is made of kiln dried poplar. We didn't make the hoop itself, so I'm not certain what type of wood it's made from, but it works well with the poplar.

As we progress with these products we will be experimenting with using different materials. I've purchased some hemlock pieces and will make the next round of frames using that material.
