Oxford 10" x 10" Gripper Strip Lap Frame for Punch Needles


Oxford Gripper Strip Lap Frames are Fabulous for Punching!

For punch needle rug hooking your rug backing needs to be stretched REALLY tight on a frame - as tight as a drum. You should be able to bounce a quarter on it!

You’ll love how quick and simple it is to stretch your rug patterns onto these frames. Getting your backing tight will be easy as pie! Experienced punchers know that when your backing is tight your punch will glide through it with ease – making the craft more relaxing with the added benefit of reducing hand and wrist strain. Taut backing will also make your loops more even! Our high quality pine frames are sturdy without being heavy. These are the most popular frames at The Oxford Rug Hooking School.

Made in Cornwall, Vermont by Oxford Company manager Heidi Whipple’s husband Steve Whipple. Thanks, Steve!
