Happy Holiday Season, and happy shopping! The "in time for Christmas" question... I can't be certain for you, although if you are in BC or Alberta you chances are good until about the 15th. For everyone else, if you want it for Christmas please choose a tracked shipping option.
Needle punching needs an embroidery hoop that will keep the fabric being punched drum tight.
This sturdy hoop with a smooth cover over the screw is a good choice.
Available in 4 3/4" and 7" sizes. Choose when placing your order.
