The F. A. Edmunds Mini Stretcher Bars are ½” x ½” which is ¼” smaller than the regular Stetcher Bars. They are perfect for needlepoint, cross stitch and painting. Manufactured from soft basswood with eased edges, they eliminate the need to block your work. Simply combine any two sizes to form the exact size frame for your project. The stretcher bars eliminate movement and keep your work taut and clean. A “must have” for any serious needlepointer.
