The Grace PolySwivel Lap Hoop
Square-hoop quilting is really a matter of logic. For years we have known that a square hoop would be more ideal for holding fabric than a round one. Because the weave in fabric is square, it lends itself naturally to square-hoop quilting, and makes it much easier to achieve good, even tension on all sides.
Quilters will love quilting on the Grace LapHoops. Straight edges make positioning and repositioning fabric simpler, and it is much easier to keep track of your work areas. The hoops amazing design will not pull your fabric on the diagonal it naturally tensions the quilt across the woven grain of the fabric, from side to side, not from corner to corner. The outer hoop rests on the lip of the inner hoop to prevent the outer hoop falling completely over the inner hoop.
The hoops swivel tension is controlled with a single knob! Loosen the knob to rotate or angle your work-area. Simply tighten the knob to lock in the desired position.
A tighten-and-release system built into the outer hoop allows the quilter to easily tighten it down so that it fits snugly around the fabric and inner hoop without a bolt sticking out to snag on fabric or clothing. Thin, carefully placed dish brackets enable the quilter's hands to get underneath the hoop with plenty of clearance. Quilting is very comfortable, even in the corners. All of the hoop and bracket parts are precisely engineered and machined.
Edge tools are included with the purchase of your hoop.
