The Oxford Company gripper frames are our preferred choice for stretching backing fabric. The most important step for successful punch needle rug hooking is stretching your rug backing REALLY tight on a frame. A general rule of thumb is to stretch the fabric as tight as a drum.

Each frame is quick and simple to stretch your rug backing or pattern onto. When your backing is tight, your punch will glide through it with ease. Easy punching makes the craft more relaxing and reduces hand and wrist strain. Taut backing will also make your loops more even! The Oxford Company's high quality pine frames are sturdy without being heavy. 

Size Selection Guide:

Sizes given are the Interior Dimensions of the frames
  • 10" x 10" - The "Baby Ox," Perfect for small projects like coasters, ornaments, little mats, and wall hangings. Frame does not disassemble for traveling or storage but it’s so compact it fits just about anywhere! 
  • 14" x 14" - Super for all kinds of projects – coasters, ornaments, small bags, wall hangings, trivets, and many more. Frame does not disassemble for traveling or storage but will fit easily in most suitcases. 
  • 18" x 18" - This is the most popular size. It works well for chair pads and many other projects. Many punchers also use this frame to make larger rugs. Frame does not disassemble for traveling or storage.
  • 15" x 26" - This smaller rectangle frame is easier to hold on your lap than the 20" x 30" frame. This fame feels more comfortable for some. Frame disassembles for traveling or storage.
  • 20" x 30" - This larger frame is ideal because you can make a nice sized 2' x 3' rug and only have to move it once. (2' x 3' is a very popular rug size and a common size for many commercial patterns.)
