Princess sprung embroidery hoop - vintage
I'm searching for sprung hoops. I hadn't realised how rare and unusual they were, until after I lost my grandmother's beautiful 8" Princess hoop.
After searching for a replacement, I now know that they are extremely rare. Does anyone else have an interest in these clever hoops?
I wonder why some enterprising person hasn't revived them as a product. Because there is no screw, there's nowhere for the thread to snag. The pressure of the spring was perfect - I never had a problem with the fabric being too thick or too thin. It was just a superb piece of equipment.
