Difficult to work with.
from Summerfield, NC
Comments about Silk Stretcher Frame:
I bought this frame to use for silk painting. In theory, this frame would be great if not for 2 problems:1) The wood is entirely too hard/dense for the pins to penetrate. I attached a silk scarf to the frame using stainless steel tri-point pins. I had to mash them super hard to get them to attach at all. When I tried to remove the pins, several of the pins tips broke off and stayed in the wood. I had difficulty prying the tips out of the wood with pliers. I also ended up with a damaged piece of silk. 2) The frame does not stay together, unless you somehow tie the corners together. Altogether, this frame does not work well for silk painting. I ended up making my own frame using strips of cedar from the hardware store and nailing them together,which works well for me.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I love this frame and have been looking around for it for quite some time. In my case, I am using it to produce cards and other smaller products in silk. It allows for a straight line on all four sides, without sagging (can be adjusted anyway with the tree prong pins) when I use Habotai silk (less stretchy). The frame is somehow limited for the size of silk/fabric you are using as they cannot be connected for a longer length or width. But for long pieces I am using a different framing system. Love it and highly recommend it to silk painters.

Piece of ......
from Phoenix, AZ
Openings either too big or too small - it is impossible to make a solid stretcher frame out of these sticks. I am not suggesting 6 sigma program, but simple quality check before shipping would be nice.

very adjustable, works with silk hooks

Does not stay together well. Has no instructions. Waste of money.
The notches does not provide a level fit therefore it is not a stable frame. In buying a frame fro silk stretching again I would not get the adjustable kind.
