This is a heirloom quality, hard-to-find, oval quilting hoop. The hoop is fine crafted in Germany of sturdy hard wood. Oval hoops are great for quilting straight lines. This unique oval shape allows you to quilt in a large area without having to frequently move the frame. We haven't seen this shape from anyone else. It's made out of hard wood measuring 12" x 21". You will love it!
