I do a lot of hand embroidery using hoops and started on a piece that was too big for any of my hoops, so I had to buy this. I found it awkward at first but got the hang of it quickly and was happy using it. I will, next time, buy one an inch shorter than suggested next time to make it easier to use. I used brass tacks to attach the fabric and they worked really well. Using this frame, my fabric stayed taut the whole time and I didn't have to make any adjustments.
