Needlepoint Mini Stretcher Bars 8 Inch (Set of 2)
Needlepoint stretcher bars are used to make a frame that you attach your needlepoint canvas to, so that it is held nice and tight while you stitch.
These 8" mini needlepoint stretcher bars are 8" long and 1/2" wide (which makes them mini; regular stretcher bars are wider which makes them heavier and more cumbersome).
Sold as a pair i.e. you will receive two 8" stretcher bars when you order 1 unit. To make a frame you need four stretcher bars or 2 units. For example, if your cut canvas is 8" x 8" you will need four 8" stretcher bars. If your cut canvas is 7" x 9" you will need two 7" and two 9" stretcher bars.
See our Accessories section for needlepoint thumb tacks - an easy way to attach your needlepoint canvas to the stretcher bar frame.
