Q Snap Frames
Another item that I wished I had known about when I first started stitching was Q snap frames! These are awesome for avoiding the marks that hoops can leave and are easier to keep your fabric tight while stitching. This is what they look like and you can get them here. I can make any size q snap covers (aka q snap grime guards) with the fabric of your choice. Click here to see my gallery of fabrics you can choose from. If you do not see one you like or have something specific in mind, please let me know and I can get it (or at least make every attempt possible).
