The Beeline Townsend 14" Orbitor Rug Hooking Frame...

As a distributor for the wonderful Beeline Townsend rug hooking products, I've been anxiously awaiting the debut of the new Beeline version of the Townsend 14" Orbitor Rug Hooking Frame. Being a bit of a tool snob, I'd hoped it would not disappoint.
The long-anticipated shipment of frames finally arrived in the studio about three weeks ago  and I confess that I am suitably impressed!

I had it out of the box, set up and in use in about 5 minutes. It's very intuitive in its function & set-up.... one knob adjusts the floor stand, a one click-pullout button adjusts the frame top angle, one knob adjusts the height and one knob loosens to allow free rotation of the frame top. When the frame top is in the desired position, a gentle twist of the knob tightens it into place. Or... you can allow the frame to rotate freely for maximum ease in turning your work. Free rotation on an incredibly stable base....my personal rug hooking dream come true. 
Other details I've taken note of as I've used the frame:
  • The large rubber knobs are especially easy to use and won't hurt your hands.
  • The grippers hold my linen foundation tightly and release it easily when I pull out and lift the linen.
  • There is ample clearance between the top of the frame and the support structure underneath allowing me full access to hook without anything getting in my way.
  • The frame folds up easily and will take up very little space if I want to store it in the closet....not that that's ever going to happen!
  • When folded up the frame will roll easily on two rubber wheels but, when set up for use, the wheels are off the floor again providing a wonderful stability.
  • •The blue heavy-duty, elasticized, canvas-type cover with the Bucky Bee logo is sturdy, practical and easy to use.
  • Best of all, when I'm hooking I'm not thinking about my frame at all; no fiddling with two or three knobs to rotate the frame, no irritating slipage of the angle I spent 2 minutes adjusting.....just hooking in the zone.
 For a limited time, I am offering this wonderful frame with FREE SHIPPING  (a $40 value) to addresses in the USA. You can find more details here:
