Rated 5 out of 5 by Becky from FANTASTIC I received it this morning, and had my needlework in it within 3 minutes. I'm doing an 8" X 24" cross stitch picture and have NO trouble putting it together, doesn't slip, keeps it tight, VERY easy to use and scroll to other areas of the fabric. I LOVE it!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Ver from A OK product I kind like this product. It takes a while to figure out how to put the fabric into the two rails. However, once you are done with step, you should be able to turn the knob to keep your fabric taut enough to stitch. I especially like the 12 inch one because it is lighter than the Q Snap. And the scroll system means you don't have to remove your frame (like the Q snap). you just turn the knob. I also owe the 18 inch and 24 inch. They are not light enough to hold in the hands. And you really need to tape to fabric to the rails to keep the fabric taut. That's all it takes.

Rated 0 out of 5 by Sylvia from Don't Bother I wish I had read these reviews before I purchased this item. IT DOES NOT WORK! The directions are horrible, you need four hands to put it together, it doesn't stay taut EVER. The price would be great if the frame worked...free isn't even worth the value. Grrr....!!!!

Rated 0 out of 5 by Bonnie from A Total Waste of Money! This is a horrible frame. I bought all three sizes and all three sizes warped and twisted while attempting to hold the fabric. This is a waste of time, money and freight. Will be returning all 3 sizes - a total waste and I am sorry I bought them. Would appreciate a full refund of my shipping and handling!

Rated 0 out of 5 by Jacquie from It would be a great item if it WORKED! I thought the this item would be ideal for larger or beaded embroidery. However,after reading the brief and blurry instructions, and reassembling it far too many times...The best I get is a poorly made plastic frame and fabric that stubbornly remained floppy in the middle. Since I had to open the package to try it, I'd appreciate a return postage label to use in sending back your defective item. Thanks!

Rated 0 out of 5 by Anonymous from Flimsy Plastic I couldn't get it to hold a piece of fabric without twisting out of shape. I threw it away the day I received it.

Rated 0 out of 5 by Jean from Don't waste your money! I have been stitching for over 40 years now and this has to be WORST frame I have ever tried out! It slipped, it's not big enough for those larger projects. The ratchet system is impossible to figure out. Directions are lousy! Plastic parts which break fairly easily! Don't waste your time nor money

Rated 0 out of 5 by Anonymous from Can't recommend I can't recommend this frame. The directions are lousy. The parts are plastic. Snapping the two half-rods together takes a great deal of strength. Keeping the fabric taut and even while snapping the half-rods together is impossible, even while using tape.
