5" Beechwood Embroidery Hoop from Superior. Beechwood is a high-quality hardwood, making it the perfect choice for embroidery hoops. The smooth surface will not snag fabrics and feels wonderful in your hands. The adjustable screw closure ensures even tension while working on your and cross stitch projects. Use this again and again or, use it to frame your completed embroidery. These are the hoops I use to frame my Sweet Stitches embroideries.
