The Beeline Company is now producing their version of the Townsend 14" Oribiter rug hooking frame and if you love rug hooking and plan to hook for many years to come, this frame deserves serious consideration. Yes, it's an investment but it may be the only frame you'll ever need to buy. The modifications that Beeline has made to the original Townsend design all enhance the performance of the frame and , to be honest, I vastly prefer this version over the original.
I've been using one in the studio for more than 2 years and have been very impressed.
I had it out of the box, set up and in use in about 5 minutes. It's very intuitive in its function & set-up.... one knob adjusts the floor stand, a one click-pullout button adjusts the frame top angle, one knob adjusts the height and one knob loosens to allow free rotation of the frame top. When the frame top is in the desired position, a gentle twist of the knob tightens it into place. Or... you can allow the frame to rotate freely for maximum ease in turning your work. Free rotation on an incredibly stable base....my dream come true!
Other details I've taken note of as I've used the frame:
I have frames in stock and ready to ship. And, as a special limited-time offer to my customers, I am offering this wonderful frame with FREE SHIPPING to addresses in the Continental USA (That's a $50-$60 value!).

Our wool kits* for our appliqué designs are created especially for each design and are carefully prepared with ample wool to complete your project. The wools in the kit will generally not be the same wools used to stitch the original and are intended to give a look similar to, but not the same as, the original. Keep in mind that the photograph accompanying the pattern is meant as a guide only; your piece will be uniquely your own.
